I signed the girls up for the Holiday Ornament Swap again this year. We participated last year and enjoyed it a lot. The anticipation of looking each day for a padded envelope that was sure to house a sweet, delicate little handmade treasure brought many happy moments here.
This year there the theme is fairy tales. When we heard that, we were thrilled although we originally ready it as fairies still we thought fairy tales were great too. That was until we started to determine what we were making. Being a no-sew family, hmmm, we are struggling a bit.
Months ago, I had decided if we had the opportunity to participate again Cali would make salt-dough ornaments. I envisioned a cute little snowman...well, I can't find a snowman in any fairy tale I know.
I have perused the internet looking and looking. Today I decided to try this.
I still used salt dough but I had to make this guy. (Don't laugh at my skills- I am challenged, I know it!)
I kind of thought maybe Cali could paint them if I made them but I've since decided the older girls can use mine as a model and try their hand at these. Cori has enjoyed some clay projects lately so I am hoping she will take these on. I 'll keep you updated.
Seriously, can you at least tell what or who it is? Do you know the tale?
*Edit- here he is painted.
