Enjoy this gorgeous ornament from Keri that is fun for the whole family! This is such a great, clever idea that you can accomplish with scraps.


"When we were asked to make an ornament, I knew I wanted to do 2 main things: (1) I wanted it to be kid friendly {because I have 3!} and (2) I wanted to keep it inexpensive, because...let’s be honest...the holidays are expensive enough!

To keep it kid friendly, there is absolutely no adhesive/glue used. Only the bristles on the jute keep the different layers “floating” and the base is just sitting on a knot at the end of the jute.

To keep it budget friendly, I used scraps! My entire 5 inch tree is made simply from cutting graduated circles from scraps I had left of my “Twas the Night Before Christmas” paper. Being 2 sided, I only had to use 4-5 different papers to get a good mix of patterns and colors." ~Keri

cute ornament and fabulous house!

Love the Christmas house, it totally rocks. "The Night Before Christmas" papers are so beautiful. However, it is very frustrating to see a super cool contest and I can't join because the POST to enter does not work. I keep bouncing back and forward from blog to FB and the post still says I haven't visited FB. I look at G45 blog and FB every day of the week. Please post something so we can all enter, I'm sure I am not the only one that can't get the contest post to work. Thanks, have a great day y'all :)

I love all of your ornaments. Using up my scraps is a must or I will drown in the stuff!! Wish I could print out the instructions!!

What cute ideas. Love them.

I love, love, love that house!!!

The house is wonderful, beautiful, and so creative. I have to say the ornament is my favorite. I love the rustic feel, yet it is cleverly creative and so futuristic also. A very cool thing.

Great projects! Did Solange use a pre=made house? Where did she find it? Is it chipboard or wood?? It's adorable but she didn't state where she got her base from or if she made it?

Great projects!

This house featured today is just above the top beautiful. I admire people who are so talented.

I love making paper houses and this one offers a fresh perspective. Thanks for the holiday ideas!!!
