Advent prep

Z recently asked me to lead
a crafting session 
with his students
to create a piece of art that
will hang in their worship space
during Advent.

Here's a sneak peak at what we did:

This is a really simple project
that yields really great results!

All you need are clear glass ornaments
(mine were a bit iridescent, too)
and some acrylic paint.

Take the cap off the ornament and drip in 
several drops of the colors you want to use. 
You can either let it drip down the insides slowly, 
or put the cap back on and swirl it or shake it. 
Make sure to remove the cap when you are finished
and let dry upside down in a disposable cup or newspaper.

You can also use glitter or stuff in bit of tissue paper!

These are fun, easy, and look awesome.

Pics of the finished project to come!

We've already had snow twice here,
just enough to stick for a couple of days
before melting away.

I loved how the snow accumulated on the
leaves instead of the ground, 
making it look like cotton balls strewn about.
