I am trying, really trying. When you have a child in Marching Band your year isn't yours until after Thanksgiving! So.....
I was inspired by Ali at Honey and Maple Syrup and these great ornaments! Inspired by Ballard, and we know how awesome their stuff is.
e have a small gathering of friends and I was wanting something to make as a small gift. So I took this idea and ran with it. I bought the glass balls at Michaels and Joann's when they were Buy One Get One FREE, so $5 for 8 or .63, then I got the cream paint at Michaels for .39, since these are larger balls it lasted through about 3 or so. Than I bought the stick on letters, all about being easy, right, these were $3.99, but have lots of letters!
Spray painted the tops black and here is what I got! I made one for each couple, using their last name initial.
I had these cute alphabet tiles I got last year and tied them on with twine. Since I don't have a tree up yet, this is what you get. Tree will probably go up this weekend. I think I will get the little chinese food containers to package them in. So one project down, a few more to go.
Have a great day!
