Quilled Ornament Charity Project" (even though when I made the poinsettia, I said I'd only make two). I knew from the beginning that I didn't want to make snowflakes, since I am assuming Carie is going to get sent a ton of snowflakes. So I concentrated on other designs that I thought would look good in a green tree.
The candy cane idea came to me as I was considering how I could use white paper for something other than snow. I made the entire candy cane out of white, and then for the stripes, I just wound one long red strip around the piece and glued the ends down. To add some interest, I embellished with a sprig of holly. The star is made only from triangles, circles and eye shapes in white and yellow. Hopefully it doesn't look too much like a snowflake :) I didn't want to make it solid yellow, though, since I thought that would been a little boring to look at ...
So off they go to their new home, to be placed on a tree and auctioned off for charity. Remember that the deadline for ornaments is October 15! There is still plenty of time to quill a piece or two and send it off. Shipping is cheap because they hardly weigh anything at all :)
