This will likely be my last craft idea for the holidays. Time to start shutting things down and snuggling in with family for Christmas. But this has been such fun. Oh and doubly fun was visiting the blogs of those of you who posted photos of your holiday home. It felt like getting to drop in and chat with friends over coffee. Thanks for sharing.
I call these my little 'wire sprays'. You can use any sort of item on these (buttons, beads, trinkets). Play around and see what you come up with. They're easy, quick and versatile. Here I've put them on a wrapped gift and a gift card holder, but you can use them for anything at all.

And a touching Christmas poem by W. C. Jones...
"The joy of brightening other lives,
bearing each others' burdens,

and supplanting empty hearts and lives with generous gifts
becomes for us the magic of Christmas."
