RECYCLED CHRISTMAS

It is going to be a good day. This was what I saw when I walked out of my house this morning. We also have cold weather coming and that makes me so happy!!

This is a new ornament that I have made for my Christmas tree. I have several of these new ornaments on my tree and I really like how they turned out.

My daddy cut out the stars and the snowmen. My mom and I painted all of them. I have recycled the part of the ornament that is now silver. It was not silver before I painted it with wonderfully fun silver glitter paint.

The first person to be able to correctly tell me what the base of the ornament (the recycled part) was in a previous life will win a covered notebook made my me. Put on your thinking caps!! If I have already TOLD you what it was...then you cannot play but PLEASE leave me comments. I feel the need for lots of comments today!! Is that pitiful or what???

HINT #1 It is glass.

HINT #2 A product was in it and then used up.

  2. I have no idea on the ornaments, but boy are they cute! Please tell us how you made them - not that I can get to it this year, but next year!

    And what a beautiful picture of the beginning of the day - how could it be a bad day when it starts out like that?

  4. The recycled part is an upside bottle cap to something or other. You use the screw threads to tie the ribbon.

    Those are some mighty fine ornaments!! I love them.

    If I won the notebook, in the Christmas spirit, give it to the very next commenter!!! Because I already won cool stuff from you.

    P.S. here's your comment!!

  5. Hmmmm... My first thought was a shoulder pad. But it looks too firm. Not even the 80s had shoulder pads THAT firm. So I'm thinking it's the toe part of a "shoe mold" (like what my dad used to stick in his shoes??)

    Is that right? do I win? :)

    P.S. You have a tree up and decorated? sigh...

  7. Unable to see the picture, but my SWAG is tampon holder or the bottle neck of a coke bottle.

    Really can't see the picture.

    I bet it is great though.

  17. I think Deb is on to something. It is one of those plug in room deodorizers from Bath and Body works, isn't it?

    (Pssst....Rachel, could I bribe you for the answer?)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Clarification: it is the bottle part of the deodorizer. That's what it is all right.
