As I already mentioned, I had been moving a plethora of these glass craft ornaments around with me since graduate school. This year, I've finally used them all. First, I made the book page ornaments . Then, I painted these using basic acrylic paint and added strips of red card stock inside. They are perfect for my red and white themed Christmas tree in our dining room.
This tree was a great thrift find for me. On a day of thrifting with a friend I mentioned that they only thing I was looking for was a white flocked Christmas tree like my Grandmother used to have (she decorated it blue, white and green). Low and behold, I found one with the tags on it for $20. Not the cheapest thrift I've ever made, but a wonderful find nevertheless. Next year, I'll have to make a little garland and a star for the top.
