One Artsy Mama Ornament Exchange

I signed up for an ornament exchange over at One Artsy Mama. I was so excited to hear that I was paired up with a fellow Ohioan named DeDe who blogs over at Designed Decor. I wandered around her blog for a while and checked out her Etsy shop. She does some adorable glass work. I wanted to make something that was fun.

*Sorry for the bad pictures. It was late at night*

I started with a clear ornament then decorated it with scarlet and grey polka dots. Scarlet and gray are Ohio State football colors for those who didn't know. :)
I then decided that the ornament needed something inside so it connected 3 little white buttons with some white thread and tied some ribbon around his neck for a scarf.

Coincidentally I received a snowman ornament in the exchange as well. It's a beautiful handmade glass ornament with my initial in it. I LOVE my ornament. As soon as I stop procrastinating and get my Christmas tree up this will be one of the first ornaments up.

You should hop over and check out the exchange and all the awesome ornaments.
