I thought I'd try my hand at making some Christmas decorations. I'm not sure whether I'll hang them on a tree or just around the place haphazardly, what do you think?

The red and gold fabric ribbon was found at a thrift store last year and I've had no idea what to do with it, so was the gold trim down the bottom (ornate!) and the wine charms and earrings I used to decorate the centers were found over a few months over a few thrift stores with a bit of luck.

A couple of thrift items, some glue, a needle and thread and some nights of casual crafting and here they are!

I'm really pleased with how they've turned out.

They are really unusual and very festive. What a good idea.

They're excellent.
You could string them too over a door or a fireplace.

Thanks, they're about the size of the palm of my hand. I'll try to remember to put something next to things I make for scale because you're right, you can't tell from the picture.

I really like them! They look nice on the tree, but also across a window sill or fireplace!
