Home Fri: Vol. 10


Ornament overload 

One of my favorite things to do after Christmas is to hit the holiday clearance section at Target. I'm not able to do this every year, but I had a day off in early January - I figured nothing would be left but lo & behold everything was 90% off!

90% off, my friends!

I had also just purchased some clear glass ornaments at our local Ace Hardware (we have the BEST Ace!) for 50% off making them about $1 an ornament - score! I bought as many as I could & used the Target finds & some paint to make a ton of different ornaments. I'm going to use them next year on our tree or attach them to presents.

So here's why you want to buy glitter, ribbon, pom-poms, stickers, fluff, garland, etc. when they cost about 10 cents a pack (all the stuff I bought was well under a dollar!) - also, if you ever come across clear glass ornaments - buy them! They are so versatile, make great gifts, & are pretty on their own as they reflect so much light.

Here are some I put together (I broke at least two while trying to photograph them - snowy ice on your deck + glass don't do well together - doh!). I also used up some other craft supplies I had on hand: leftover ribbon, beads, yarn - it was fun!

And, one of my favorites - white paint (coated on the inside of the ornament) with Happy Mail stickers:
