Hello gals. Welcome to the mansion.
I am one of those crazy people that likes to change my Christmas "theme" every year or so. I love the challenge of thinking up what my tree will look like each new Christmas season. However, my pocket book does not like my thinking this way. So...the race is constantly on to find frugal ornaments and decorations to use.
Not long ago, I decided to try my hand at tassel making. For some reason, my tassels did not turn out quite like I had envisioned them in my head... I am NOT the Nester, that is for sure! Anyways...this ill fated attempt left me with some extra craft materials...ie: fringe, ribbon, beaded things, etc. And...when I was in the Goodwill store a few Thursdays ago (20% off for Military at the DeRidder Goodwill on Thursdays) I found 24 white Christmas balls for 1.60. I grabbed up those balls and headed for home.
Long story short...extra craft materials + cheap Christmas balls + hot glue = cheap tassel ball Christmas ornaments for our 2009 tree. See???
