a Christmas craft with JJ Benson

Hello Hello Dearie readers! I am JJ Benson from Razorsharp. Here's 2 things about me: I love crafts and Christmas. When I was trying to decide what kind of decorations to put in my house, I wanted to do something different and I also wanted to make my own ornaments. Maybe its just me, but White Trees have been everywhere, but at the same time they are rare enough to still be ultra cool.  While at Michael's one evening, I hit the jackpot! I purchased a white mini tree.  A few aisles down I spotted some unfinished wood ornaments of various shapes and sizes. These ornaments are very budget friendly.

I purchased a handful of wooden snowflakes, wreaths, ornament balls, and little ones in the shape of Christmas lights. Mr. Luke brought over some wood stain. It was a very simple process to paint the ornaments. Let them dry for about 30 minutes and then you can put them on your tree.

Another idea is putting yard or rope into clear plastic or glass balls. I also found some for super cheap at Michaels. 
I love my white mini tree. Are wood and white going to be the new red and green? Maybe so...
I am pretty sure that its going to be a staple in my Christmas decorations.

Have a beautiful day!
