Christmas Ornament - Done!
Here is my little ornament, I'm ready to start covering the wire. I used two strands of wire, stripped from a bigger wire my husband gave me. I don't know the size or what it was from, he has electrical wire in the basement and gave this to me for a project a few years ago.
It's all done, and the ornament holds its shape pretty well. I learned several things: don't use blue thread to couch the cordonnet when you have a blue denim 'pillow'. There's just not enough contrast to pull out the threads. Don't use white cordonnet if you are going to use colors in your design. It is a pain to hide it later on. Next time I will put the wire all around my design, not just at the top.
