Yeah! It's ornament Thursday! I love ornament Thursday.

I am really happy the way this ornament turned out. I bought some 2" wooden wheels at the craft store, got out my markers, beads, and nails and went to work. The first thing I did was pre-drill eight holes for the nails. I tried just hammering in the nails but these wood wheels were really dense, it might work on another type of wood but not for me on these. Okay, next I drew circles with markers, pretty easy right? Then I dug around and found some 2 inch finishing nails, they are nice because finishing nails are pretty skinny allowing most beads to slide on. I did put a dab of glue on the end of each nail before sliding it into the whole. I figure I am going to have this ornament for a long time and so I should make it sturdy. Last to make it a hanging ornament, I wrapped a piece of silver wire around the top of one of the nails and then made a hook on the other end. I want to make more. I think these would be too cute hung all together on a garland across the mantle.

For more great ornaments, on this wonderful ornament Thursday please visit these blogs of other handy dandy crafters.

Before I end my post today, I want to show you another project I have been working on. It's my Etsy store. I have wanted to get one of these up and running for awhile and I finally did it this week. I have some finished jewelry and one of a kind beads. These are things you won't find on my regular website. All of these pieces are in stock and ready to ship for all of you last minute shoppers.
