Ever since our Little Free Library got its Halloween facelift, we’ve been thinking about what we could do for Christmas. Finn wanted to make it into an acorn, which is cute but doesn’t exactly say Christmas. We also thought about a Christmas tree or Santa, but settled on an ornament. Yesterday Bruce set about making it happen.
We put the first pass up yesterday evening and it just seemed like it wasn’t quite right.
It didn’t have as much pop as we were hoping for, the cap looked too small and the wire hook, while cute, was obscured by the trees.
So, we Googled ornament images to come up with some type of embellishment. We settled on snowflakes.
Bruce then made the cap bigger and ditched the wire for wood covered in silver tape.
A little glitter on the snowflakes was the finishing touch.
This morning Take 2 was up.
Much, much cuter!
