Each morning I wake up to a chill in the air and everything outside is covered in a heavy layer of dew. Could Christmas be coming once again? The holidays always seem to appear out of nowhere, surprising me with how quickly they’re approaching.
Every year I promise myself that I will get a jumpstart on my holiday crafting only to find myself mid-December with not a single thing made. Not this year, however. This year I hit the ground running once the calendar turned to November.
We’ve decided to get a bigger tree than usual, and I know I’m going to be scrambling to find additional ornaments to hang upon it when the time comes. I never tire of creating ornaments out of various test tubes, so that’s exactly what I did. To start, I cut a small piece of an artist paper from Somerset Studio 1/2 inch shorter than the test tube. Next, I rolled it up so I could insert into the tube. I pushed the cork into place and then wrapped twine around it, securing it with a small knot. I threaded thin wire through a metal word tag, tucking one end of it behind the twine, and then twisted the wire together to create a hoop for hanging. It really is as simple as that!
