I considered several things and finally settled on this ornament idea from Susan Gibbs. Instead of making my own wooden cutouts, I went to the local craft store.
I came home with wooden stars.
I grabbed some yarn and began wrapping.
Ready for the tree.
A little light bulb went on. I realized the possibilities and made another trip to the craft store.
A sock - with stripes, of course.
It didn't take long for the kids to join in the fun.
Variations on a theme.
A star within a star.
Before we knew it, we had a pile - more than enough.
Now all we need is a tree to go with the new ornaments.
