Blog Share Day
I found this felt ornament on-line. I just had to share it with you. Click on the picture to check it out.
Don’t you love it? Just think of the different materials you could use to make it unique -circles of paper, ribbon, burlap, tulle, etc. The possibilities are endless.
I am getting so excited about the holidays. I think decorating my tree is one of the joys of my holiday season. My tree is a family history. There are ornaments dating back to our very first tree.
The story of those ornaments goes like this. My husband and I were newly married, living on a budget, yet wanting a meaningful, beautiful Christmas tree. After trudging through the snow we found the perfect tree to cut. Nearby in the woods the ground was covered with small flower-like pine cones. We collected as many as we could find. At home, I sprayed each one using different colors of bright paint. Adding a wire loop and an ornament hanger they were ready to grace our first tree. I still have those same pine cones, many years later. I have given each of my children a few to hang on their trees, but have several left for mine. They represent years of happiness and fond memories. They are hidden among the new glistening ornaments. Not everyone sees them, but I know they are there.
Since then, new ornaments have been added each year. Some were gifts, some are child crafted just for mom and dad, and some mark special occasions. All those memories come back as I hang each one on the tree.
Ribbons and Bows Oh My invites you to post your favorite crafted decorations using RABOM supplies. You will find the Friday Share tab at the top of my blog. It’s “Your Turn to Chirp!”
