You really did stay busy and made some beautiful decorations. I have made those but it has been a long time. My problem would be making those pretty bows!

If you find you don't have enough room for all these, I'll be glad to "keep" some....really nice work.

Those are gorgeous! Aren't they addicting to make?? I got started making them @ Christmas time and couldn't stop! I loved making them! Good idea to do them now and leave the rest of the year for quilting and gift making! Also, might be easier to find the 3" styrofoam forms, I had a bit of trouble finding them last year.

They really aren't that difficult. The boring part is cutting and ironing the squares into the folded triangles (much easier to work with if ironed). Once you've done one or two, you no longer need the directions! BUT it takes 150-200 pins per ball so be sure to get them on sale and use a thimble.

These are fun to make. I like the decorative pins/sequins (?) you put at the point of each star. I've always thought they would look great in a bowl or basket, in colors of the season, much like fruit in a bowl.
