Often staying up 11pm-12am (I know, that prolly sounds lamely early but when you're already sleep deprived from midnight feedings and whatnot you tend to need every bit of sleep you can get) I still ended up shipping out a couple of the gifts late. Most of them were inspired by pictures and tutorials I found on Pinterest.
All except my wine gum mosaic ball that is.
That was my own insane brain child. The thing ended up weighing for to much to hang on a tree. In fact, you could prolly knock someone out if you threw it at their head. Oops. Still, it was a fun thing to try! (The making it, not knocking someone out with it.)
Anyways, here is most of what I made...
|Simple Wood Button Wreath Ornament|
|And old book of hymns + one container of modpodge = Musical Balls (Ok so they could use a better name) But they turned out so lovely I've thought of making more for selling.|
|I have a friend who loves color and lots of it so when I saw these little balls I thought PERFECT!|
|This one went to a friend who loves roses. She's been my best friend since I was 12 and even though we live in different countries now we still keep in touch and stay close in heart.|
|Made of sculpty. Fit in your palm. My favorite ended up being the fat little green one. He turned out really cute.|
|And the beast. The wine gum mosaic ball. Made for my brother who a few years ago got hooked on wine gums when I brought some back to the states with me from Canada. Not know what to make for a soon to be 19 year old my brain took off when I discovered a bag of wine gums in the closet I'd forgotten to send him last year.|
