So this year I decided to try making some Christmas decorations to sell at craft fairs. I bought a small silver and gold tree from The Range to display them on my table.

These are some I made using MDF baubles and stars, ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, papers and various embellishments.

When we were in Florida in January I bought some of these decorations from the sale bin at Jo-anns. I cut off the wire, threw away the tatty ribbon and hubby painted them with cream paint.

This is how a couple of them finished up. All the ribbons are from Crafty Ribbons. I used baker's twine to hang the little decorations and added various embellishments. Here is one of the stars I made too. I am at a fair from 10-2 today so hoping I sell some more of them today.
