Day 11 of the 12 Days of Christmas: DIY Rustic Christmas Tree Ornament

Hang DIY Rustic Christmas Ornament on tree

Hello and Welcome to day 11 of the 

Today, I have Erlene from 

Take it away Erlene!

Hi, I'm Erlene. I blog over at 
My Pinterventures where I share all things creative. This is my first-time guest posting, ever! I'm slightly nervous, but even more excited for the opportunity to be sharing on Crafty Allie's blog! 

A few week's ago, I hosted the 2015 Ornament Exchange and ended up with two exchange partners. It was a bit of a challenge because both of my partners had such different tree themes. I created and shared a Coastal Glitter Starfish Ornament on the blog, but never had a chance to share the second ornament. So today, I'm sharing the second ornament, a DIY Rustic Christmas Tree Ornament that I sent to my second exchange partner.
