I made Moss and Butterfly Ornaments

I have been wanting to make these for so long and I finally remembered to look for all the supplies!!

For these you will need:
  • Glass ornaments that you can take the top off
  • things to put in the ornaments... I used green spanish moss
  • and these adorable glittery butterflies!

A closer look at these adorable butterflies!!


The moss was so soft and messy.  Made for a lot of fun!!


I started to stash the moss into the glass ornament... looks like there is a creature growing there!


Apparently, moss in plastic bags also attracts purdy puppies too!

Man 'o man... she wanted to play with one of those butterflies in a bad way!


Here is one of the first ones put together... darling wee things, no?

There is a little magic in getting the butterfly through the tiny hole, but really just roll 'em and stash them in.  Yes... it will work!


And voila!  Fun, homemade, personal treats for your tree!


Isn't this time of year putting the biggest amazing smile on your face permanently?  I know it is for me!

Hey! These are really cool. I wonder will the moss change colour over time? Kirsty at Kootoyou had some clear babules that she had suspended with filament - not sure if they were glass baubles, or not. I'd love to have a go at making some one day... perhaps when the boys are a little bit older (ie. the baby not crawling!).
Thanks for the inspiration :)
