Ice White

Now I know that 12th night has come and gone and all your Christmas decorations should be packed away for another year but whilst putting my little tree away I had an idea.

I never have any really small ornaments to decorate this tree and I wanted to make a garland to drape around it so I sat down and made some pom poms. :)

I used two types of white double knitting wool, one of which had a silver sparkle to it, doesn't really show up on the bad photograph sorry. I then attached buttons using embroidery silk.



I am entering this in the Tando January Challenge "Ice White". Do pop over and have a look at the Design Teams offerings you won't be disappointed and will be inspired to create.

Hi Tracey, I LOVE your tree decoration idea and it all looks so gorgeous on your tree! Thanks for visiting my blog too, and in answer to your question, my ice skate is just 3" high - quite fiddly but looked lovely on the tree for the one day it was left up! LOL!! :o) xx
