Make Something Mondays: Holiday Ornaments

I'm cheating a bit today; I didn't make these myself. My adult daughters made them and gave them to us as early Christmas gifts. These were created with plain ornaments from the dollar store, glue, glitter, sparkly pipe cleaners, and a bit of imagination. They had little helpers, of course, and the kids had a good time trying out different combinations of color and materials.

Everyone in the extended family now owns a custom-decorated ornament. I wish I had managed to get a group photo before they were all packed up!

This post was inspired by Jolly Mom and Go Graham Go!, the ingenious moms behind Make Something Monday. We'd love for you to join us next Monday!
