Enchanted Forest Ornament swap,..my apologies

You never know until you try, right?

I now know I pretty much stink at making ornaments that look like an adult made them. Sadly these are gnomes and I think the ones my kids did turned out better. I just pray my swap partner has sympathy for my skills and doesn't laugh too hard at them.

I hope the recipe, the chocolate and herbal tea (sugar cookie flavored!) make up for the awfulness of this project.

Seriously, I needed help with this. I had a picture I was trying this from. I think I need detailed instructions.


I think next time (if there is a next time) I will make a stocking or something. I can make a mean stocking. I rock the hot glue gun.

My kids think these are fabulous, so I guess in the eyes of my kids, I'm still the rock star crafting mama. They have decided that THIS is the project they want to make for their teachers this year.


  1. omgosh, they are SO CUTE! take all that 'bad news' off the post...they ROCK!

  2. They are cute! You are too hard on yourself!

  3. Yes! I agree, they are so cute!! You need to do a tutorial so the rest of us can make them too!!!!:)


Thanks and have a great day!
