In my newfound and accidental trend of going to places where it's snowing on the weekends (cheers for Snowtober!), I'm spending time at my parents' house in Payson. I've mentioned how inspired I am when I'm here...but this time it's far too cold to watch plants grow. With an entire relaxing day ahead, I tackled another Pinterest Challenge project.
I'm one of those people who loves Thanksgiving and resents the world's tendency to skip from Halloween to Christmas...but today I temporarily became one of them when I saw this idea for Christmas ornaments.
I didn't pin it directly, but found it through a pin that led to this page full of great ideas. To accomplish the project, I was forced to break yet another principle...I went to Wal-Mart. It's what you do in Payson when you need anything other than gas or groceries.
The project was fun and only took a couple of hours - and I can't wait to see them on my first Christmas tree!
Mine look less sophisticated than the original, but they're fun anyway. My parents have quite a stash of art equipment, so I got to add details like crimped cardstock. The staples were a necessity because Wal-Mart didn't have the right size eyelets - if I ever make larger ones, I'd opt for the eyelets since it makes them more streamlined. These are pretty small - the longest paper was 5".
This blog will now revert to its previously scheduled programming by hiding all reminders of Christmas until the day after Thanksgiving.
