Snowflakes may or may not be falling, but this simple snowflake gift is sure to make anyone smile! An adorable ornament, sweet and easy!
I made this hanging out of a straw, ribbon/thread/forgot what this stuff is called, and a bottle tab. Fabulous way to re-use rather than add to the landfill, right? A bit of an animal freak here, so I worry about the environment.
I glued a straw on the back so that I could make sure it hung straight and hide the knot where I tied the pretty string stuff together. I wrote on the paper the following poem, which I found online somewhere!
The Legend of the Snowflake
a gleaming star led
the way to a child
born in a manger.
Today it is believed
that Snowflakes are
little pieces of that
that leads us to
The Light of
The World, Jesus.
I have to say, Chief Zoo Keeper responded with “WHO says that!?! What legend!?!”
Sometimes, he just doesn’t get it!!!
Now, to the bling! I made these with re-purposed bottle caps. They aren’t on my Etsy shop
, anymore but if you are interested, just message me and we’ll get you an order going! These little bottle cap decorations can be used for decoration, ornaments, necklace/keychain charms! They really are adorable!!!
Merry Christmas and God Bless You!
