Anyone who knows me is going to laugh at this one... I really don't like clowns. As a last minute, desperation costume this year, that is what 2 of my daughters dressed as for Halloween. That inspired me to make them each a clown ornament for the tree.
I started by winding yarn around a styrofoam ball.
I had found these vintage clown heads at a thrift store. My goodness, do I love digging through old craft stuff.
They got glued on top of the yarn balls... a little creepy at first, I know.
I'm getting a lot of milleage out of these candy cane pipe cleaners from JoAnn's.
I added some vintage flower bouquets, buttons and jingle bells... and they are now fun reminders of trick or treating, 2011!
