This is what happens when your imagination runs wild!

I made the coolest ornament tonight and I just had to share my idea with all of you. I remember how well everyone enjoyed The Terra Cotta Pot Tree so I know any of you making a 100 Good Wishes Quilt will love this too!
With the leftover scraps cut a tiny piece from each pattern and modge podge 50 tiny pieces of fabric to each side of your plastic ball which you can most likely find at any crafts supply store. I emphasize tiny because it is hard to have every piece show on the other side if the pieces are too overlapped. Apply the modge podge with a brush on the inside of the ball a bit at a time and place the fabric piece inside, brush modge podge on the other side of the fabric as well. When both sides are complete let the modge podge dry over night. When dry click the two sides together and modge podge your favorite color ribbon over the seam and tada you have yourself a OHWG Christmas Ornament that you can hang on your tree for generations to come!!!! Leave me a comment if you make on so I can see how yours turned out! Feel free to ask me any questions if I haven't been clear on my instructions and I'll leave the answeres in my comments for you.

Love your new ornament - it's great! Since my quilt isn't made yet, I will need to wait until I get all my scraps together.
Thanks for visiting our blog. We are nearing 22 months.
