One of those odd things-
Are these. They are the little plastic balls that hold cheap toys in the $.25 machines, or that hold pantyhose.
Side note- this is also a good activity for the little guys who actually buy the silly toys. Keep these balls around to repurpose them into ornaments!
I found 3 of these little guys on my desk. Wondering why, I asked Dave, "...What are these for?" He replied, "I thought you could make dog treat ornaments or something."
HOW THOUGHTFUL!! HOW SWEET!! HOW LUCKY AM I TO HAVE A BOYFRIEND WHO APPRECIATES MY LITTLE CRAFTS?!
Incredibly impressed, I gave him a big hug and put them away...
Until last night.
I decided to attempt this idea-
I took the little ball-thing and punctured 2 holes on the lid and put a ribbon through them.
Then, I stuffed it with glittered tissue paper that I had leftover from wrapping gifts.
I took some red ribbon and glued it around the lid closure.
I knew it needed a little something else, so I added some dazzle.
I didn't have any string or fishing line, but once I do I will tie it around the top ribbon in order to hang it on the tree :)
