Primitive Rag Balls

I call these simple "rag balls" when they don't have the hook for hanging. Rag balls are a common primitive decoration in the country around here. 

All you need is some plain ole' Styrofoam balls, fabric and hot glue!
Cut up the fabric in manageable strips, depending on the size of your Styrofoam balls, and hot glue'em on. Add on some crafting wire if you want a hanger. And that's it.

You can simply fill any old bowl with them to add a dash of color here or there.


Below are some hand-made Christmas tree rag balls I made.

Price: $1.00 each for hanging ragball ornaments (with wire hook) = Sold out
Price: $4.95 for a set of 5 Ragball bowl fillers (without hooks)

Update: New patterns/colors to choose from in Booth #555. Photos coming soon!

Salt Dough Button Ornaments | Recipe

This is my first try with making salt dough anything. So I thought I'd try to make some old looking buttons. Then I thought, hum, bet these would look cute on my primitive tree as little ornaments, or "ornies" as we call them around here. They really add a primitive touch, that's for sure.

Here's a few more pics of my go at it:

Primitive SNOWMAN JINGLE Bell Ornaments

I just finished up a new batch of hand painted Jingle bell Snowman Ornies today. 

I just mainly stuck to the theme of Primitive Snowmen on them.
Various styles, shapes and faces.

These are great hanging on any primitive tree or tied onto a gift as a bonus present!
