I took out some ornaments to photograph for this post and my husband got worried that the tree was going up tonight O.o
Like these clothespin snowflakes http://www.bystephanielynn.com/2011/12/clothespin-snowflakes-handmade-ornament.html I love her website, such beautiful things.
I painted them teal because I think that they will match my black Christmas tree and most of my ornaments on it are purple (my fave color). I need to get more clothespins, three doesn't seem like enough even though they are rather large and my tree is small. I set it on my dining room table to keep it away from my dog and cats.
I also made these right after Christmas, with my abundant supply of sheet music paper and some glass ornaments I picked up for $.50 a box at Dollar Tree (half off after Christmas). That cute little bell was made by a co-worker for me years ago. Here is the tutorial to make them http://www.iheartnaptime.net/sheet-music-craft/
These are made from toilet paper rolls and pipe cleaners. Here is the tutorial to make those http://spoonful.com/crafts/retro-ornaments
These are popsicle sticks spray painted white and pony beads glued on.....These look better on the tree.
This is simply beads, buttons, flowers and leaves strung on wire. Here is the video tutorial for that one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UbXgZJ85NrE
