Since I have been the crafty holiday mood I thought that I would share some of them with you.
A quick note to say that I did take some xmas ornaments with me when I moved to Spain, but they are few, and in a very nicely packed box. Currently I really do not know where that box is. I am just glad that I have them for later.
This xmas we have a real tree for the first time, which means that it is really small, because it is a potted plant. We hope to have it for many years.
So in order to decorate said tree, I got two tubes of small ornamental bulbs. They were very cheap looking so I also bought some glitter glue and had some fun with it. It was a couple of weeks before I remembered that I also had acrylic paint (see the White tree and "s" below).
Then I of course, used both at the same time.
And I could not just leave the tree up there all alone so I made a winter wonderland below complete with giant balls of yarn...
using some of my characters from a unsuccessful diorama.
Then I broke out the bigger ornaments.
I of course got bored with the paint and glitter, and started to try and incorporate yarn.
Then I made decorative yarn ball ornaments.
Then I wrapped the cheap plastic ornaments in ribbon yarn.
Here are the bigger ornaments on display at the window.
And the free standing felt tree now lives with some felted critters I made (and a stone zebra I did not).
What are you doing to decorate this year? Anything crafty?
The next thing I need is a garland, because I have company coming this year!
