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.

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!

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

  14. So glad Abi is alright...I think that someone suggested last week to ask the vet for sedatives for her to keep her calm and not wanting to run around too much. I hope the vet agrees.

    I am glad the ornaments dried alright or the glue held...they were so cute and your tree is just beautiful! :)
