Trimming The Tree
I thought I would share this before I take down my Christmas Tree. I did things a bit different this year. I decorated my tree with presents. I have been making these scarves for a few months now and wanted to give them as gifts. Instead of covering up their beauty in a box or bag, I decided to decorate my tree with them and even put a few inside of clear plastic ornaments. Just a thought for next year.

What great ideas! If I put up a tree and decorated, I would definitely take your advice! (Actually, we sometimes get living Christmas trees--about every three years or so--but they are quite small and one scarf would wrap up the entire tree.)

Your scarves are gorgeous!

But how do you get the scarf out of the glass ornament? Hopefully not by breaking it!!

The ornament is acrylic/plastic and has two halves that snap together. They are available at Michaels and AC Moore. They are a common everyday item (I think) usually around the unfinished wood area.
