Day 2 of Christmas week

Welcome to the Greatest Gift of the Season blog hop! 

Welcome to Day 2 of our inspiration week thanks for joining me today!  If you are just dropping by make sure that you start at Scrapping Everyday Miracles to get all the details on our hop.  Make sure that you stop by every day this week because I have created a ton of ornaments (some good and some that you don't want to try) and I will be showing you how to recreate them, here is just a snapshot of a few.

Click here for my giveaway and the secret word!

Today I am going to show you how to make a more rustic ornament and personally my favorite!  My husband was a little uncertain when he saw the first step - he thought I really lost it this time, but he changed his tone when he saw the finished product.

I used Crafter's Pick glue and applied it to the jute and then wrapped - it is a little messy, but not too bad.  The glue does dry clear so even though it looks messy as you are going it dries beautifully.

I found that it works better to start right where the metal part ends - I tried one starting at the top and it was so much more difficult and really didn't add anything to the project.  I found this jute at Home Depot.
