I finally got around to making some ornaments (I guess 2 straight weeks off work will do that to ya)  Lips sealed


Super metallic dreamcatchers.  I used bangles left over from a prom long ago, metallic embroidery floss, and pearl or metal beads. These babies are so pretty but a real test of patience, because unlike using a leather or wood ring, the floss slips on the metal really easily.  So super glue is a must.


I saw this on Craftster before (whoever made them, please post so I can give you credit!!), and they are just too adorable. Charlie Brown Christmas Trees!!  I've put the dead tree in my back yard to use!  Twigs are not easy to work with either.  Cheesy

Even though I made these like two weeks ago, I just got around to posting them now. They are salt dough ornaments that I dyed with food coloring. I also tried to microwave them instead of bake them to speed up the process. That's why some are burnt, they were my first batch. I then painted them with gold and silver glitter glue to give them sparkle.

All the mittens inspired me! Since I don't know how to knit, I stuck with the felt version. They went together quick, which is always a good thing, right?  Smiley

ineedart:  I am loving your mittens Grin  They are just darling...on my MUST make list!!!

flootloop:  I have never made dough ornaments & think yours are really cute.  How long do they last?  Are the sprayed w/ some kind of sealant?

LOVE all the felt mittens!
Darn, I was really hoping to get time to make some ornaments (felt, too) this week, but then I was hit by a huge cold... Guess I will have to join in next month's theme instead!
