Pieced Christmas tree ornaments


In our effort to downsize and organize I discovered something... containers of this

(scraps won in a giveaway last year)

and this

(remnants from the same giveaway)
which was turned into these.



All that is left to do is add the trunk (ribbing off an old sweater), snowflake bead for the star (part of yard sale find) plus a hanger and they are done!

I LOVE repurposing!
(all components in this project were either remnants won in giveaways,  part of "package deal" at a yard sale or a from an article of clothing that was no longer usable.) 

Total cost: $.50 for the entire yard sale package deal which included many other usable items such a a bin of embroidery thread, needles, beads, and various other notions.

Hope you are having a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!!

  3. Wow you hit the jackpot!! I love "recycling" things like this. You turned some pieces of material into something so special and pretty that can be enjoyed year after year.

  5. I need you to come craft things from the things in my closet. I used to be so into beading and such, I'm sure you could come up with all sorts of creative ideas that would go far with my stash!
