Christmas Ornaments Flashback

Every year we make Christmas ornaments.  It started when David wanted ornaments to decorate the Christmas tree in his Air Force dorm room.  He went all out decorating his room, however, he wanted homemade ornaments for his tree.  I made some baked clay ornaments and while we were painting the ornaments, he asked me if I wanted to make ornaments every year with him for the rest of my life and presented a ring.  Of course I said a resounding, “YES!”

So every year we make ornaments to add to our collection.  Unfortunately I found out the hard way that my baked clay doesn’t hold up to tropical humidity and I needed to find alternative mediums of ornament making.  This year we made some out of wood and thick felt.
