The iconic faces of the season shine brightly on these glittering balls for the holiday.
Like a Halloween hanging hatter, my pattern placement I do scatter.
From the branches of my October tree, hang glittered balls so rarely seen.
I purposely peruse for the perfect place, so from the ground, you see each smiling face.
I look up through the twigs, my elation muffled, to see if anyone needs to be shuffled.
It’s the picture of autumnal perfection. I take that back, there’s one correction.
I should make a few more balls, not for myself, but for friends who call.
The fall is for sharing the harvest, you see, so start with those picked from a glittered tree.
The iconic faces of the season shine brightly on these glittering balls for the holiday. Using elementary school–style glitter gives them a thick texture that makes them seem vintage but with a modern twist. A loop of chenille at the top allows them to be suspended by multicolored ribbons.
