Snowflake Ornament/Gift

Snowflakes may or may not be falling, but this simple snowflake gift is sure to make anyone smile! An adorable ornament, sweet and easy!
Snowflake Gift Sweet & Easy Ornament
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

Long ago,
a gleaming star led
the way to a child
born in a manger.
Today it is believed
that Snowflakes are
little pieces of that
special Star
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!


Hi all! My name is Kaycee. I am now learning to navigate life as a single woman. Turns out, it's not all about husband and children. Who knew? So, I'm on a journey of self discovery. I have 5 children, 3 of which are married, 5 2 are in Heaven (my beautiful baby Acadia Reign and my Diva Princess Tara Elizabeth), and 7 grandchildren! Plus, a ton of fabulous nieces and nephews! My educational background is in Psychology and Child Development but my heart is in ministry, crafts, fun, reviews and my website, My Crafty Zoo. Or at least it was, now I'm learning who I really am, beneath all of the busy family life. It's an adventure to be sure. I look forward to continuing to share my life through word and pictures with you and love hearing your feedback! Thank you for taking the time to read and allowing me to share! I look forward to reading your comments!
