Due to circumstances out of my control, I couldn't make my famous citrus potpourri this year, so I decided to make some braided ornaments instead.
Let's hope it's enough to appease the angry mob beating down my door.*
*Oh yes, I do hear about it when I neglect to make the potpourri.
After my husband distributed these ornaments to his coworkers, he reported that some wanted to know how I made them.
Well, he didn't know.
I'm sure he doesn't.
Oh, I'll be nice and let you know.
But be warned.
What else is going to hold that stuff in place?
Just work slowly, adding glue, braiding and pins as you wind your way around the ball.
This always reminds me of Sputnik.
clean off any excess glue with a damp rag.
Add a length of ribbon with glue and another pin
(this one will remain in the ornament).
See, that wasn't so difficult.
