The Tree With The Homemade Jar Lid Ornaments

I don't know if you saw the ornaments I was making on Sunday. I made some in the usual silver mason jar lids, and there were some red ones at Walmart I picked up too, just to be a little extra festive. It's too cold out to spray paint!

Here's what they look like on my little tree...

I originally thought I'd group my three little trees together, but I had an idea and went with it. You'll see them later.

So here's where we were Sunday. I waited and let them dry overnight before I finished them.

A little closer to view them...

At night...

These ornaments made from mason jar lids and bands were so ultra easy. And I just love to sit on my couch and gaze at the little vintage children I printed out from the internet.

If you want the instructions, click here.

I don't know if I'll make more homemade ornaments or not. I love to create them, and it's a yearly tradition with me. 

I've always thought it was fun to add them to the tree as I make them. So it will just depend on how things go.

My Abi is in surgery. I took her to the vet early this morning. I'm a jumble of nerves. She's not a spring chicken. She and Charlie are 9 years old now. 

The vet told me that if she jumps or tears it in any way, we have to start all over again. I can't imagine putting her through this again. And paying for it again!

I will update with news after I pick her up this evening.

Don't forget that Debra and I are having a linky party December 9th and 10th for all of you to join in. It will be fun to see everyone's creations. That's one week from today!

The vet's office just called and said Abi came through the surgery just fine. I can pick her up at 4 p.m.
