While decorating the tree earlier this month I decided I didn't want to mess around with the smaller balls anymore.  What to do with them?  A quick google search led me to turning them in to wreaths!  Of course the wreaths I ended up wanting to make required buying more ornaments, but it was gluey fun and it was nice to give the kids something personal last weekend at our Christmas gathering.

It was so much fun that I plan to snatch up buckets full of ornaments tomorrow on sale and make more of them for gifts next year.  Other folks get in to making gingerbread creations this time of year, but I'll leave that to those with more patience than I possess.

Today I'm going to celebrate the good (for us) weather and the fact that our holidays are done by trying to get in a hike on my way out to Katrina's to feed her cat.  However you celebrate this season, hope everyone has a merry time!


  1. Ornament wreaths! What a great idea! I may have to make one to hang up along the Ornament Trail next year. :) Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  2. The wreaths are beautiful!! What a terrific idea:)

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
