25 Ornaments - Day 8

Christmas is getting closer and closer! Here in Michigan, we've finally gotten our first real snow fall. If I had my way, it would arrive on December 24th, snow all night, snow on and off on December 25th, and be gone on December 26th. That's just how I like it.

For Day 8, I've decided to feature another wonderful ornament from another wonderful blog, Blue Cricket Designs. These look so fun, I may just break my own "No real painting" rule to make some! (I can't paint anything other than solid colors, I have no mad skillz, it isn't a dormant skill waiting to be discovered, I just can't do it!).

Paper Mache Bulb Ornaments

You'll Need:
Old Christmas Bulb Ornaments, any color, dinged up or scuffed up is fine!
News Paper cut into strips
Mod Podge, or your typical, gross, pasty paper mache mix
Paint
Patience

To see the instructions, head on over to Blue Cricket Design! In the mean time, aren't these just so cute?
