Kids have no patience. The Search for the Perfect Twigs have been postponed due to all the rain that has fallen here as of lately, so Little Mango has been bugging me about the ornaments we made last week. In lieu of a tree, and wile I get something I like, I just made a banner. I wish I had a video of her when she exclaimed “this looks so ‘christmasy’!” with a huge smile on her face.
Yeah, we all need a dose of color this time of the year. This is how to make a handmade Christmas ornament garland.
I simply stitched each ornament onto a piece of red ribbon. Easy peasy. The result? A handmade christmas ornament garland.
And now our banner welcomes us every time we open the front door. It looks pretty cool, if I may say so myself. So what are we going to hang on the tree/twigs/whatever when we get it?
This is what I just got on the mail. I finally decided I needed some color, days are shorter and darker this time of the year. Heather Bailey’s fabric are the perfect therapy for the winter blues. Heather Bailey’s is one of my favorite fabric designers. I usually go for more subdued colors, but her line of modern vintage fabric is really calling to me these days. Yummy. And that’s what I’ll use for my ornaments, when I get around to that.
They are pretty, aren’t they?
