I made some garlands out of some stuff I had around the craft room. I'm thinking they can pass for Christmas, New Years and even Easter. We used to have some of those little pink chicks as ornaments when I was a child, they bring back Christmas memories. I had to repaint and glitter these ones I found at a garage sale. I also used felt balls that I took from a purse that I bought years ago at a flea market, plus ribbon and glitter stars.
I saw this idea in a store in the Orange Circle. They took an old branch and hung it with twine, then addes silver oraments hanging down.
Here is my tree. I love all the oraments we have collected over the years. Just like songs, they remind me of specific events and memories from year to year. I'm going to need a bigger tree soon.
And, my hutch that I thought would be fun to decorate with red and green and silver. I hope I remember to look back on this post next year for inspiration.
I love looking at the Christmas ornaments that get put away for 11 months out of the year. Some of my favorites this year include the giraffe and owl that I got at Target last year at the after Christmas sale, the snowman face and hula monkey I ended up with at ornament exchanges, and well, I'm a sucker for a cute snowman. They are all now all put away. See you in 11 months.
