Pinterest Twine Ornaments:
I remembered I had purchased some clear glass ornaments last year after they were clearanced out for $.99 a box. I had a box of large and a box of smaller ones, and had two different types of twine left over from some projects from our wedding. I was able to quickly assemble the ornaments. When you take off the top of the ornament and start shoving the twine in, it just automatically wants to roll around in a ball like shown in the picture. It was really very enjoyable to do it (almost like a little game) and I was a little sad when I did the last ornament. (Am I pathetic, or what? Don't answer that.)
I thought of hanging them from various heights from the entry to the kitchen/dining room and initially I thought just using scotch tape to hold them up would suffice....and then I realized what I was really expecting: tape to hold up fragile glass pieces... and I quickly thought of a better solution...clear thumb tacks. I really didn't want to hang things there with nails or anything because I didn't want a bunch of holes...but, you do wha chu gotta do. :) And 10 thumbtacks it was! (At least they're smaller than nail holes!) I didn't like the look of just a bunch of tacks sticking out of the wall either - so I used some thin brown ribbon to tie little bows around each tack.
Here are mine:

How's Christmas coming along in your house?? :)
