Day 7: Holiday Craft/DIY
Although I love my parents tree with the a variety of different ornaments and that every ornament has a story and a meaning behind it, however I have always wanted a tree with all of my ornaments match.
Last year, I was finally able to create my vision that I had always had with ornaments that I made
[exhibit A as to why I would LOVE a wonderful camera!]
One set of ornaments are quilled
which is just scrapbook paper rolled up with a quiller [pictured below] and then placed into the ornaments
I then tied the top of the ornaments with different ribbons that matched
The second type of ornament that I made I used both glitter and flocking powder both made by Martha [love her!]
and i just used glue and made dots - to have this final outcome
Last year I found this tree skirt at Crate and Barrel, however I really want to make it out of my colors. I had high hopes of making this over the past year - but never got around to it... maybe next year? [Nonna and Grandma if your reading this - doesn't this look like a fun project for next summer?]
I am sure by the end of the holiday I will have plenty of other crafts that I have come up with - and I will be sure to include them.
Although I love finding something perfect in the store - I love it when I'm able to make something - it just has that much more meaning behind it!
I can't wait to see your DIY projects!!!
