  1. Those are so cute, and so simple to make. I have to try some of those. Your little tree looks precious with them on it.

    And those boys look like they're having way too much fun making them.

  3. So cute, I'll have to do this one by myself. The teenager probably won't be all that excited about this. Orange peels, hmmmmm.

  6. Hey There, Thanks so much for the sweet comment and following me. I just read your profile and loved that you said you go for a walk and pray. I have a funny story about that walking and praying business. Have to tell it to you sometime.
    Now those twig stars are wonderfully simple and so dang cute. I teach 3rd grade and think I might do this project with my class.
    Thanks Again,
    Patty

  8. Makes me wish I had some grandkids to make these with! I used to do crafts with my kids and the children I babysat way back 2 lifetimes ago when I was a stay at home mom.
    Those were definitely the good old days. I look back and think how fortunate I was to have had that time back then.

  12. Spray paint black and make spiders, spray paint white and sell for big bucks at craft sales. Spray paint red and add some glitter (or R/W/B) and you'll be ready for July!
