Homemade Native Style Christmas Ornaments

I love the holidays and the time we get to spend with family.

I made this plan with my kids that we would make at least one new ornament for the tree every year. 

These two pictures are this year's project.

The dress is made out felt and ribbon. Just needed glue to hold down the layers of ribbon. I used a little sewing skill to stitch the sides of the dress. Ojibwe style ribbon dress :)

The cradleboard was made out of popsicle sticks glued together. A piece of ribbon sewed on a piece of felt and ta-da.

What type of homemade ornaments do you and your family make?

A cage for me

It is funny. I always wanted a bird cage but never a bird.  There is something that makes me happy to see a candle burn inside a cage.

Maybe it is that I capture a piece of light and happiness.  It is the small things that make me happy.

What is a small token that you wanted? Something that maybe did not male sense to someone else but made you smile? Could it be a piece of a story?
