IA Challenge

The subject of the Inspiration Challenge this week is Christmas Balls! Over the years I have made dozens of ornaments and we enjoy having an almost all hand made decorated tree. The question posed was What is on your Christmas Ball? Why, Beads, of course!


I hung this on our, as yet, undecorated tree and took the best photo I could. It is actually deep royal blue & vibrant yellow beads & each drop has a little elephant at the bottom.

Busy weekend ahead for us, so I will continue with the 12 Days of Christmas Treasuries on Monday. Have a happy, creative weekend!

Beautiful colors and the style reminds me of the Indian headpieces the elephants sometimes wear.
