As time goes on I'm finding more people setting up theme'd trees, whether for each holiday, a favorite sports team or a special event and I love it! I just made these Home Town Team Ornaments as a little extra gift and thought they might be a fun idea for the sports lovers in your life. It's also a great kids craft! Simply push beads onto pipe cleaners (you do have to make sure the holes in the beads are big enough tough), then twist the pipe cleaner at the top and wrap the extra back down the sides to the beads and snip off the excess pipe cleaner. Work it a little so it's round and the beads look neat-done!
These square beads came from Dollar Tree and unfortunately they did not have a red P or H... So the Phillies got left out this time, although I think "just win" sums up how we feel about them nicely:@) (This was literally a last minute idea so I used what I had on-hand. If I had planned it out I would have picked up a pack of beads at JoAnn Fabric that had baseballs and basketballs too.) To make things easier I'd suggest using black lettered beads and adding team colors as the embellishing beads.
My boys are grown and on their own and while the day job puts food on the table, it doesn't feed the soul. So this Philly Girl started Pig In Mud. Please join me as I welcome each season and holiday through brief posts focusing on home cooking, baking and crafts. I hope you'll find this a happy place that provides inspiration:@) Lynn
