Ornament Month! Yahoo!!

First of all, let me apologize for the lack of crafts last week.  Things were a little crazy!  Stephen has been working on a paper for school, so my computer time is limited, and I've been double busy at work lately, so my brain is pretty much shot by the time I get home, which keeps me from being in a particularly craft mood...  But enough excuses! Let's just pretend I didn't post any crafts last week because I've been so busy preparing for...

Ornament Month!

That's right!  I'm declaring November to be ornament month on Full of Craft.  I always say I'm going to make Christmas ornaments every year, but when it comes down to it, I don't actually get any done.  I decided to put an end to that this year.  I will try to have a new ornament up every M-W-F, and maybe even the in between days too.  Some will be my very own creations, others will be linked to wonderful tutorials I've found out on the web.  I hope you're as excited about this as I am :)  And don't worry - if you really hate ornaments, I do plan to have one or two non-ornament posts throughout the month.

Enough talk!  Let's get ornamenting!
I decided to start with something simple.  Allow me to present the curly security paper ornament:

I can't remember where I got the inspiration for this one - let me know if you think I should be giving you credit!   Anyways,  I'd seen lots of tutorials where clear glass ornaments were filled up with various things, so I decided to put some more of my security paper collection to use.  All I did was cut lengths of security paper about 1/2 inch wide, and curled them up around a chop stick.  Then I just popped them into the ornament.  Done!  You could of course do this with any old kind of paper you have lying around that you like the look of.  Enjoy, and I'll see you soon for more ornament fun!
