We also made a number of ornaments this year. A number being made from leftover pistachio shells saved from our all our old biscotti baking.
When we were going through our ornament collections, we realized we each had made an angel ornament with our photos on during the same year (1992). So obviously, they needed to go on the tree together.
Here's my latest project in my quest to find ways to use left over milk caps from work. A holiday wreath! (You can find other projects here and here.)
I used a wooden craft ring (12 inches) that I painted a green color. One thing I realized after I completed the wreath was that I should've strung a ribbon or wire through two of the holes so it could be easily hung. However, it still hangs perfectly well on a hook.
Each cap I hot glued down to the ring form and then to create a "bow" I layered a few caps in the lower corner. For added interest, I then attached various buttons to each cap center.
And the finished wreath hanging.....
