Ornaments, Week 3!

In 2005, we came up with this little angel. As usual, one of us (this year, it was me) came up with a base idea, and then we tweaked it. You can't see it from here, but we stacked together 4 craft sticks to give her some depth. The rest is just paint and material. I think she's pretty cute!

This was the ornament from 2006. We used a 3 inch mirror which we painted white and sprinkled with embossing powder (again, we like embossing powder better than glitter because it is so fine). The nose is orange clay shaped like a carrot (Andy has the patience of a saint to do those!). Then the ear muffs are made from a pipe cleaner and green and gold puffs. I really like this one, and it was so easy!
