Ornament Exchange My Pinterventures

my pinterventures
 Erlene over at My Pinterventures is hosting a fabulous Ornament Exchange.  I LOVE Christmas ornaments and just had to join. I get to swap with Sharon from the Blue Willow House. Her blog is so much FUN! Lots of Vintage goodies. To get you in the Christmas Mode click here for some music- just remember to come back here :)
My Mom and I got together to make Ornaments the other day and I had way too many ideas flowing- I didn't get as many pictures as I wanted- my phone is out of order. (grrrrr)
Lots of Crafty goodness
We made Christmas Trees with fabric, dowel rods, and thread spools. I've been throwing all my empty spools into a basket and this was the perfect time to get them out! 
scrappy tree fun

These are super easy- just cut scraps into strips (we used 1.5 inch wide and pressed them in half)  Then we tied them around the dowel rod and trimmed them. the one side seems to stick up a bit so we just stuck a bit of hot glue in the "armpit" .

a bit of ribbon at the top for a hanger and a button for the star

Then we wrapped the spools in a bit of fabric, glued and embellished for the tree stand. A wee bit of hot glue on the "tree trunk" and stuck it in the spool.  We also embellished just the spools.
Sorry the pictures aren't better-
my phone has some really good ones

Then as I was playing with scraps I made a paper airplane- It was super cute - so I found some quilted paper and made more- I think I am making lots more of these.

Now I know why I've been saving empty thread spools! Very cute idea.

I have tons of scrap fabric that I could use to make these. I'll have to dig around and find some holiday fabric so I can make some of these trees.
