The local Library hosted a workshop making natural, hand made, Christmas ornaments. Over 30 people arrived ready to craft. We had a great time making these easy and adorable little ornaments. With hot apple cider on the ready, it made for a perfect evening.
These little wreaths are made my braiding long pine needles with floral wire. Then attaching greens, berries and little cones with a glue gun and wire.
This one is just cranberries, dried apples and oranges, cinnamon sticks and twine. Simple, fragrant, and natural. I will put it outside when the season is over.
This little pine cone man puts a smile on my face. What is supposed to be his nose, looks more like a frown. And those little googly eyes, hilarious.
Our tree is a Frasier Fir. It was grown here, near the mountains. This one was only $28. Not to bad for a six foot tree. It is one of the most perfectly shaped trees I have seen too. The fragrance is superb. I love walking into the room now with this cozy little tree. I wish we had a few more ornaments but these will do. Eventually, I would love to have a tree covered in handmade ornaments.
Now all we need is snow!
