Christmas Ornament

Challenges:
Penny's Paper-tie one on
The Pixie Cottage-holiday decor
DYSU Challenge-ribbon
The Culture Shock-diy
Colour Create-red green white
Saturday Challenge-photo inspiration
Just Some Lines-handmade gifts



I have been seeing tutorial for using ribbon spools and thread spools to make ornaments, so this is my version. This ribbon spool had five different ribbons on it. I kept it around, sure I could repurpose it. So I have this pretty paper and I wrapped it, then traced the top and bottom to add more paper, just used a pencil to poke out the hole in the middle. I used my red liner tape to put this lace around the top and bottom and then hot glued on the roses. I used a wire to help me get the ribbon through the middle and then added more roses around the top of the ribbon, just left some stem on them, poked them in and added a bit of glue to secure. 

Now I know your asking yourself, are these photographed in front of towels? Why yes, yes they are, and that my dear friends is what happens when you say, honey will you photograph these for me while I clean the kitchen lol.

If any of you know my sister in law EO, dont show her this picture, this is a gift for her tree lol.
