    I love all of these!!! Every year the boys and i make special handmade ornaments for family and friends as their Christmas card from us. This year we soaked pine cones in simmering scents and let them dry out.. which of course when they dry they expand.. then we sprayed them with a glitter shimmer and various other decor added to them depending on who it was to.. I love the hand print snowmen!!!

I love comments!
