Sure it’s a challenge to create and photograph and post about 12 ornament projects 12 days in a row. But you know what I find more challenging? Coming up with interesting things to say 12 days in a row …
I fear I may have hit the wall.
The words have dried up.
My brain has turned to mush.
Maybe the glue fumes are finally getting to me …
and my interpretation here …
I started with a mason jar lid that I spray painted white. Once dry, I brushed with some Mod Podge.
And glittered. Heavily.
While the glitter dried, I cut the faux snow bottom off my bottle brush tree.
And then I gave that little tree a hair cut. I trimmed the needles on one side so it would lie flat against the lid.
I used a bit of modeling clay to attach the tree to the lid. And added some glue to keep it all in place.
A jingle bell was hot glued to the top to give me a place to add a baker’s twine hoop.
I wonder if my Christmas ornament crazy crafting friends are running out of words too? Clearly they aren’t running out of amazing ideas …
