go green this year
I was carrying an empty tp roll to the recycling bin when this fun idea popped into my head. These cool decorations can be used for so much~door hangers, tree decorations or wall decorations. Since our family is doing a 100% recycled and handmade Christmas this year we figured we could make plenty of these to hang everywhere.

This is a cute idea--- but what really got me was the idea of using those mini hair clasps as tiny clamps! THAT is just what I've been looking for! Thanks, for both ideas.

So I just got done making two of these,, glitter and all and they turned out so awesome! I'm so glad that you posted this tutorial. One question. Did you seal yours after glittering them?
