A cardboard stocking form + some glue + fiber scraps + ribbon scrap = ornament.
Now, what I really wanted was a tree form, since I had all those green scraps. I would then decorate the tree with beads and sequins, but this is the last remaining form in my stash; I used the trees some time ago. I contemplated cutting out a flat cardboard tree. That’s all, just contemplated.
The key, in my opinion, is patience and applying several layers of scrap fiber. I’ve decoupaged some of these, but I think I prefer the soft fiber as the outer texture, even though stray bits occasionally fall off.
And there we are: 24 Creative Gift Ideas. Whew! Several times during the month, I had doubts as to whether I’d hit the 24 goal, but here we are.
Next up: I think we should, as a group, aim to execute all of them–or some variation of them–before holiday time next year. What do you think? Would you help?
