Christmas Ornaments From Natural Materials

fernlover(z8)December 16, 2006

I am looking for ideas for ornaments, wreaths, or other decor made from natural elements for our garden club to make for a Christmas Bazaar. Also, ideas for decorating a room in a Holiday House Tour. Pictures would be appreciated.

I don't have pictures to share, but if you use dried seeds from a milkweed pod - seed and carrier - and put them into the clear glass ornaments and trim with ribbon on top, they are beautiful, and the lights from a tree make them almost shimmer from the oils on the 'hairs' of the carrier for the seeds. Its tricky to get them into place without them falling apart, but if done carefully, it can be done.
