Happy Monday before Thanksgiving! It hardly seems possible that it is already here. We will have a Thanksgiving ‘Feast’ at the preschool on Wednesday and then be off for the rest of the weekend. The kids are already all wound up for the holiday, so it will be nice to have a few days to relax. And, no move yet :(. We were really hoping to have the house and start doing a little bit of work on it, but it doesn’t look like it is going to happen.
I do have another ornament for you today. I know a lot of people already have their tree up and ready! So here is sparkly ornament to add to it!
Your supplies are very minimal for this ornament. A styrofoam ball- as small or big as you want, some sequins-any colors, and some sequin pins. I found mine at Hobby Lobby. Then just start pinning! I chose silver and a little bit of turquoise.
Lauren decided to use some beads that we already had and to make a design. I would have bought longer pins if I knew she wanted to use beads. But, of course, she had to be different!
Here it is part way done. I won’t kid you. This takes awhile! I just kept it by my computer and worked on it a little each day. First I added all the silver and then filled in a few places with the turquoise.
That’s it! Pretty simple but it will add a lot of sparkle to your tree!
I love how it turned out! Have you made any simple ornaments for Christmas? I always love looking at others’ handmade crafts. Thanks for stopping by today!
