String Art Ornaments

These little string-art ornaments are the second of my twelve crafts for Christmas.

I love all the fancy string art I’ve seen on Pinterest. String Art was very popular for a while when I was a child – my Mom covered the wood with fabric then meticulously hammered LOTS of nails in a perfect pattern. Mine are NOT in a perfect pattern but I love the rustic and slight messiness of them.

I have boxes of scrap wood (can’t stand to throw something that could become perfectly useful at a later date). I dug through my stash for ornament sized pieces, hammered on some little nails, then tied and twisted embroidery floss. I finished them with screw eyes and natural jute. The possibilities are endless!!! I have other patterns/colors running through my mind as I type.

Welcome back Louie

Our elf, Louie came back several days ago. We found him sitting on an old wooden duck decoy, with a Duck Dynasty cup and a sticky note that said “I ‘m back Jack.” So far Louie hasn’t been too mischievous nor has he been terribly clever this year, but Ashton still LOVES getting up and looking for him.

About southernflaircrafts

I am a very busy wife and mother of two beautiful little girls. I work part-time in a flexible position as an Office Administrator for a financial advisory firm; I love the work I do and am especially grateful that it allows me to be a Mom first. I love to create!! Although I think my creativity was born with my first child, before children I would not have considered myself very creative. My mind is always wandering ahead to my next project, whether it's woodworking, sewing, paitning, or crafting with my kids. I also love blog-hopping (and blogging - I'm learning as I go); sometimes I see things I know I have got to make or I see a great creation and am insprired with ideas of my own. I especially like projects that rescue some treasure that would otherwise become another victim of the landfill.
