Tic Tac Toe again!


Spring has Arrived in Tassie!

This cute little lamb at Ross is getting pretty good at this whole walking thing.
For more info, see:



However,  this time I am thinking of Christmas (it was cold here today) and decorations and I was on Pinterest OK so I cannot be blamed for this as they just  appear on the screen and I was just tempted to make it.....

Hum hum..... as I was saying, I made a Christmas decoration today for the latest  October challenge at Unstampabelles, which is 


Tic Tac Toe 
TWIST journal about the decision making process

     RIBBON


                LACE


            STRING


   BUTTONS


              BLING

            BRADS

   FLOWERS


           DIE-CUTS

          STICKERS

I went for Ribbon, Lace and String this time........

Yes, there is a prize


I started with a polystyrene ball and a ball of garden string.....oh, and some glue!


Put glue on ball, wind on string.....


Keep doing it until you get to the middle and turn ball over - keep going


Leave to dry overnight - then add a loop. The pin holds it in place. 
Meantime, pick all the glue off your fingers and fingernails......


Add a strip of lace,followed by a strip of ribbon... and then some baubles and bling!


Hung it on the lime tree


Another angle


and another (on the rhododendron this time in the sun) 


A final shot to see the bottom and sides more clearly


Cute, huh!

You have two weeks left to enter the challenge
Remember, no stamps please!

This is a great way to make a bauble, love the rustic feel of the string with the lace and the traditional colors of the pompom and gems!

Great decoration. How many are you making? I can imagine a tree covered in these.
