The D.I.Y. Louisville handmade ornament swap is my favorite group event of the year. Ornaments are just so fun to make and so fun to receive.
The D.I.Y. Louisville glitter ornaments were made by Angie, and it seems fitting that my daughter selected them from the group of wrapped offerings. They are the perfect addition to our tree. Indeed, I’m seeing a tradition here as Kim made me a D.I.Y. Louisville ornament last year.
I love to see the creativity of our group and how each ornament is unique. I have plans to make a wine cork wreath for myself. To the right is a glass ornament with melted crayon shavings inside. The effect looks like painted glass. So pretty!
This little tree was made from a recycled cardboard base and kraft paper. Simply adorable!
We had a wonderful night making new friends, noshing on delicious baked goods, and drawing for door prizes. Thanks to everyone for coming out, and for all of our group members who really pulled together to help me get everything organized.
A big thanks to our generous sponsors for donating some fantastic prizes and goodies:
I’ll be sharing more of our pictures on our Facebook page if you’d like to check them out. Have you ever participated in an ornament swap? What was your experience?
Happy Holidays, DIY’ers!
