Clothespin snowflakes

 This is what I started with, as well as my hot glue gun and white paint.

The first thing you have to do is pull all the clothespins apart.

 Then you put the clothespins back to back and glue them. Then glued all the pairs to together.

Then you paint them. I then added a hanger.
I made some of these from medium-sized clothespins and they look good too.

Crafting adventure

Spent a few hours this past weekend, showing a friend how to make some felt ornaments for her tree.
These are the patterns that were used. The owl pattern could be found online, I had to make the other two myself.

I helped my friend get started and shemilie basically completed the foxes and penguins on her own. I did the owls because they involved a few different kinds of stitches.
