I love to have fun with paper, food, paint, music and events and just being creative in all of it. However, I don't feel the need to be a perfectionist nor a professional in any of my creations. I wish I could have a blog JUST about the art of cooking, photography, sewing, art, mothering, jewelry making, card making, dancing, gardening, deep spiritual thoughts, decorating, poetry, party planning, baking.... and the list goes on but I can't. I don't think I was created with the ability to focus on one task. I like all of these hobbies layed out before me and the freedom to pick whatever I choose depending on the mood or time I have.

Shabby Chic Rosette Christmas Ornament

Lovely Rosettes on your Christmas tree from our Drab to Fab DIY Christmas Ornaments Collection.

Crepe paper
Craft glue
paper clip

1. Cut strips of crepe paper about 10inches long and twist them.  I don't twist them tightly b/c I like my rosettes to look a little fluffy.
2. Loosely twisted paper and roll into rosettes.

3.Once rolled glue them to styrofoam ball.
4. Insert paper clip so that you can hang it on the tree.
5. Make a bow and glue at the top.
