OPERATION PROJECT TWO (and three quarters): another ornament!!!


Alright - are you guys ready for another ornament??? I actually only have one more after this one AND I'm going to try my "dangness" to get it on here tonight!! {Yeah - we'll see!} Okay - so this one is real simple . . .
supplies:
- clear ornaments {actually - I think the round traditional ones work best for this project, but in the picture to the right, I did use the round, flat one
- small tiny feather boa {you can actually find these (currently half off) at Hobby Lobby in the Christmas craft section} These are 1.99 and like I said half off - CHEAP!!! I'm smelling a bargain - you can use these things with so many crafts!!!
- ribbon
optional
- danglies/notions {translations: anything tiny and cute that can hang from the ribbons at the cap of the ornament!!} I used the tiny jingle bells {also half off in the Hobby Lobby Christmas craft section!!}
Literally - I made 6 of these in a 15 minute period {it was naptime for the kidlets - therefor, uninterrupted!!} I cut the boa into 6 inch long strips. . .


. . .and squished a strip in each ornament,. . .



. . .tied it off with ribbons added a couple of bells and boom . . . . you see what I got!!



About these 6 ornaments above - I'm going to give them away!!! But you must leave a comment of some sort to get the chance to own these!!! Now, I'm going to be really embarrassed if no one leaves a comment!!!! So, PA-LEEZ . . . . . . leave a comment!!!

I will randomly draw some one's name on Wednesday morning - so that gives you guys a couple of days to say what you are thinking, to come up with something witty or just to say "HI"!!! But to get in on a chance to own a "kim tate original" haha . . . .

. . . .thanks for the participation!!!

Oh - yeah, dont forget about flickr!! It's always great to see everybody's pictures!!

Very, very pretty!

I'm not at all a feather boa type of person, but these look like perfect drifts of snow.

Hi, thanks for stopping by my blog today...I wanted to let you know I was so inspired by your ornament tutorial that I went to Hobby lobby and got some clear round balls to make ornaments for my sisters, My Mom had given me some of her really old beautiful hankies and I put them inside the glass balls added embellishments! I love them, and I hope they do too...thanks for the inspiration.

Such a wonderful idea! I want to do a tree for my daughters room & was thinking white & pink - maybe a white tree, but these would be perfect! Also could use the boa's as the garland...

Love seeing your post each day!

SO I'm thinking since they were so CHEAP & EASY to make AND you are obviously soooooo good at them *wink wink* you should be able to make everyone some!!

Brown nosing in exchange for witty!!

Looks very simple and elegant. I also think adding some color with ribbon would look great too! Love the silver bells. Great Job.
