advent day 4: straw

I bought a Martha straw ornament-making kit off eBay a while back, but never got around to making one. This is my first and maybe also my last. Such A Pain To Make. I don’t know how anyone with larger fingers than mine would make this thing. It’s pretty, though, isn’t it? It’ll be the star on the top of the tree this year.

    It’s pretty, but it does look like a pain to make. Like advanced popsicle stick art. :)

    It’s gorgeous. I’d have used hot glue for sure.
