Well, the weather is gloomy and depressing here -- but this makes me happy. On a leisurely 'stroll' the other day, I took my kitchen shears and snipped little branches of blossoms around my neighborhood. Hopefully I didn't look too crazy. I then put them in 9 different baby jars hot-glued together into a square, and wrapped some lace around it. A cheap way to get some fresh florals into my kitchen.

So, I must say that this idea came from Lindsay's personal blog last year. My friend Rachell and I got together a few weeks ago and made this little cutie. We just bought ornaments from the dollar store, took out the top part that has the hook/string attached, and hot glued it top-down into a foam wreath.

I found some really cheap, ugly ornaments at the dollar store for 12 cents a piece and decided to make my own unique ornaments out of them.
So, I cut some strips of fabric..
Mod-podged them on to the ornament...
I let it dry sitting in the rim of a plastic cup...
And here they are. I even added a little ruffle on a few of them. One of the best parts is they're unbreakable and very kid safe.
