Deck the Tree

It pains me to do it, but I'm actually going to be on season for once. Yep, I'm actually going to acknowledge that Christmas is coming. (I know, this is so unlike me.) But I saw this dragon ornament (too cute!), and I knew I had a topic. Even if it is, gasp, December appropriate.

So, once I got started looking, I found all sorts of cute things. Like this glass wire wrapped one.

What an interesting idea. Recycling beer bottles. For ornaments.

Or using sheet music. I have a few musician friends who would appreciate this on their trees.

And of course I'm always partial to knitting, even if it's just knit prints.

And while my medium isn't beading, I'm sure some of yours is, and the pattern for this ornament is available. There's something kind of cool about making your own amazing ornaments.

A few years ago I knitted some ornaments. Maybe next year I'll make some more and add them to my shop.
