I found a 12 pack of these at the local thrift store for 99 cents, it was originally marked $2 from the dollar store ( dollarama my Canadian friends)
I knew exactly what I would do with them
Turn them into these little wreath ornaments
The bow is made from ribbon I found at the dollar tree and the snowflakes are from there as well.
I crocheted around these and you can print my pattern HERE
If you don’t crochet you can wrap pipe cleaners around them our thick wool, even up-cyle old fake tree branches by wrapping the stems around these hooks.
This is the pack of ribbon I found at dollar tree ( back in late September/Early October)
A funny story, as I was browsing the dollar tree for crafty things, yes Christmas crafts in September lol, I ran into a nice older lady who had her cart FULL of all things Christmas crafts, we got to chatting, she said to me have you ever heard of the pinterest, haha HAVE I EVER! we joked about our crafty addictions and then parted ways.
I ran into her in the cash line, she was 1 person behind me, I showed her my ribbon find and asked if she had saw them, the cashier and I directed her to them and as I was leaving I saw her heading back to cash, lifting her handful of these ribbons, to show me, in a sort of crafting victory!
Glad to have chatted with her and helped spread cheap crafting joy and also participating in the dying art of talking to a stranger.
