One of my craft projects this weekend: turning a $4 Christmas tree into a personal statement. ‘Cause that’s how I roll.
Decoupaging very small ornaments like these is surprisingly challenging, as each piece of paper (in this case, cheap reprints of old comics) needed to be crumpled and strategically torn in order to wrap around the little sphere. It took me all of The Amazing Spider-Man *plus* the deleted scenes to finally get the groove down and successfully complete a dozen ornaments.
And in case you were wondering, those shotgun shells are a holdover from the year that Dad was active in both hunting and gun restoration, and we discovered that, when placed over Christmas lights, red and green shotgun shells make both a beautiful and unique addition to the decor. Because no one in our family can ever have just a ‘normal’ Christmas tree.
Though in this case, I’d say the extra effort was totally worth it….
