Ornament Contest

In December, I entered an ornament contest sponsored by a local Arts Council.

I won 3rd place.

Design: This ornament is made completely from yarn, (other than the bead accents.) I created a white, yarn ball and then added just enough red yarn to create a 'warped' base for weaving in red yarn to cover the base. I created a green, chained string to add some details and added a multicolored "hanger," (similar to a plant hanger,) to hold the ornament. I added beads for contrast.
