11  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 8 ENTRIES / Christmas Tree Ornaments on: December 05, 2005 09:48:57 AM
I made 4 Christmas tree ornaments. 
This is the stuff I started with:

It is a sheet of aluminium, small can of green spray paint, and some screws and something with an eye hole and red tip???.  I used some puff paint for the ornaments and trunk.  I painted to top screw yellow for a star.  The reason for the mystery named hardware is because had I threaded the string to hang it from through the aluminium then the metal would eventually wear through the string. 
This is a close up on one of the ornaments:

And this is all four of them hanging on my tree:

I'm in, I've never done a craft-a-long, but I do need to make some stockings this year.  My make shift stockings aren't going to cut it.  When my son was born we went out and got these cute Pooh characters stockings.  Then my daughter was born so I had to find one to match, which of course was impossible.  I ended up cutting a Piglet head off stuffed doll and sewing it to a generic red stocking.  Now that she is 5 I think it will bother her to be different.

I'm so excited that I finally was able to complete a challenge.  I've been dying to do something since I found this a couple months ago, about the time of Challenge 3.  For some reason or another I wasn't able to do the challenge.  This time I got the flu all last week, but I'm better today and made my thing!  Yeah me!  I made a grocery bag holder out of three old pairs of jeans.  They were a size smaller that I had held on to for too many years thinking I'd lose weight lol.  Hopefully I jinxed myself and I'll have to buy all new jeans, but I doubt it.  I hope the pics aren't too big, I don't really have time to mess with it.

These were the 3 jeans

I look forward to the Hardware Challenge next month.
