Now, the rest of the story . . .
I made this beaded ornament for an ornament exchange. Of course I had to buy a package of 6 ornaments at Hobby Lobby and a lot more beads than this one ornament needed. I had the brilliant idea of making up the other 5 balls to hang on the light fixture.
I worked and worked. Of course I had to run to Hobby Lobby for a new supply of one kind of bead, but my 5 balls were done. I decided that the fixture needed some garland, too, so off to Hobby Lobby I go again.
The garland went on the fixture just fine. I wasn't sure how I was going to hang the ornaments, but after several tries I came up with a plan. 1, 2, 3, 4 ornaments hung. I'll bet you know what's going to happen! You guessed it, I dropped the fifth one and it shattered all over.
The only thing to do was to run back to Hobby Lobby again and get another package of 6 ornaments. Good thing they were 50% off!
As I drove back home I was contemplating what to do with the 5 ornaments I would have left over after replacing the broken one. I hung the bead netting on the new ornament and promptly dropped it, too. Broom and dustpan out again. Okay, now I'll only have 4 left to do something with.
I did manage to get 5 beaded ornaments hanging from the light fixture and I like the look so much I'll be packing them carefully away to use in years to come. Oh, what did I do with the 4 extra ornaments (you ask)? They stayed in their original box, carefully placed in a closet. You never know how many I'll break next year!
