package he is holding and the pipe cleaners were new from the dollar store.
Adult Best Mix Winner
Used a pop bottle and cardboard that was going to be thrown away
My ornament is a snow globe with a sloth hanging off a branch.
The snow globe is a reused water bottle. The snow inside was microbead
stuffing for a pillow or stuffed animal. The sloth is cut from wrapping
paper scraps. The pink tape around the top and bottom is paper tape
that was new. Everything used in my snow globe was found in my home.
I glued the peanuts together, colored them with marker and my
counselor cut off a friendship bracelet from camp fire and hung it up.
I reused a biscuit tube and aluminum foil from our breakfast meal:) the
Pillsbury flaky biscuit tube is a twister once you open the biscuits. I cut off
the top and bottom and decorated with the foil used on the pan. The only
thing I didn't reuse is the markers to color and the string to hang it.
I call the ornament "a flaky twist of christmas."
