Ornament from the recycle bin

Like most people, we did celebrate Christmas two months ago.
But I didn't blog over the holidays and hate the thought of letting them go by completely unmentioned.

We realized a few years ago that if we want to avoid broken ornaments and the guilt and disappointment that goes along with broken ornaments, we need to stick with the home made variety. Most of our ornaments haven't lasted from one year to the next. I'm totally fine with that. As long as we enjoy making and hanging the ornaments (and hopefully looking at them), I'm satisfied.

This year, my kids ended up using Sculpey clay molded into balls, squares, discs and a lot of free form shapes, pipe cleaners and colored beads for theirs. They turned out pretty cute and weren't demolished during the stay of our tree.
I had been thinking for some time about making trees out of lids from our recycle bin, though, and managed to finish one. I drilled a hole in the center of each lid and strung them together with basic white string. I used a couple Sculpey balls and a disc to create a stronger resemblance to a tree.
So, totally belated, but there it is.

Speaking of belated...O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree, You've overstayed your welcome....
Confession: Our (artificial) tree is still piled up on a table in the living room awaiting its return to its box and our basement. This year's ornaments are also still in the living room awaiting their trip back to their dark and creepy home. You know how when you let something go for a while, you start to get used to it being there, even if it's unwelcome?

Love the ornament. It has a vintage look to it.

Jennifer used to leave the tree up year round and decorate it for every holiday. Mardi Gras, Easter, Halloween...

Melissa said...

Totally vintage looking...reminiscent of tops from days gone by.

hrm...my verification word is 'propper'. It's like it KNOWS I'm using the box of holiday decor to rest the humidifier on...

Have to know...! What is that white lid from? It's a curious shape/style!

glad you are back

moomer said...

How did I miss this post??? Love the ornament! Happy the tree has been put away. :)

Nathan said...

hi!

found you through Crafty Crow...love this idea and plan to make these for next Christmas. I make about 30 ornaments as gifts...so I better get collecting.

I can't believe i'm thinking Christmas already, but this will be perfect for my kids to help out during the summer, etc.

BTW, are you in the chicago area?

Take care, Carol

PS- I am not Nathan (that's my husband) I'm just too lazy to sign out!

Megan said...

Carol,
Thanks for coming over from The Crafty Crow. Yes, I am in Chicago.
Kudos to you for being ahead on Christmas!

Very interesting points in your blog it sure cleared many questions that I may have had. I loved it because I did learn a lot from it because of it.

Wonderful, actually I already have a block but i still don't know what to write or what i should write about ? but well...

saim said...

I think its a pretty good idea not that there aren't other sites out there that already do something similar but I think it might catch on here pretty well.
