So, Wednesday is my son's Christmas party at preschool. I'm a little ahead of the game (by 2 days), so last night I was finished with the flowers and components for my 12/26 bride's order so instead of starting the other orders, I thought I would try to work on the gifts for my son's classmates. My dear friend and student/instructor, Myrna of Petal Chic had made these cute votives with penguins, snowman and a Christmas tree. I am not one for figurines, but she inspired me to create a keepsake for Aidan's party. If you recall I made pumpkins very last minute for Halloween.Anyway, I decided to make little penguin ornaments. I tossed around doing a flower for the girls and a surfboard for the boys, but ultimately it's Christmas so a Santa hat seemed appropriate. I embellished with glitter glue and added a little hook in the back to secure a ribbon and a custom tag so his classmates would always remember when they received the ornament.I LOVE how they turned out and I thank Myrna for giving me a perfect sample to work from. :) Definitely check out her Christmas figurine votives at Petal Chic on Etsy. The pictures don't do them justice. I have 4 of them, 3 of which I'm giving as gifts. Honestly they are cuter in person!
