In a momentary lapse of judgement, I decided to do two different ornament swaps this year.
I don't know what I was thinking....
I've never even done one swap let alone two swaps!!!
I kept the same rules - I would not buy a THING!!!
I would only use what was in my craft room.
So this is what I made:
I used plain ornament balls, hot glue, an old book, the end of a thick paint brush,
and a 1-inch square paper punch. I punched A LOT of squares out of the old book I had. Then, I would take the square, wrap it around the end of the paint brush, put a dab of hot glue on the end, and place it on the ball. I did that A LOT until the ball was covered and looked like this:
If I had had more time (I may or may not have been finishing these 30 minutes before the swap), I was going to add something Christmas to the side of it. However, everyone loved the way it looked without anything else. I liked them and was pretty proud of them.
Here is a look at more of my super talented friends and what they shared with me!
