These are two ornaments I made for the Zetti Holiday Ornament Swap I am hosting in the Zetti Zoo Yahoo Group. The ornaments are not necessarily supposed to be 'Christmas' ornaments since not everyone participating in the swap celebrates Christmas. Everyone was open to interpret what their version of a 'Zetti Holiday Ornament' is and go from there. It is my first time hosting ever in any group. Participants only needed to make 1-3 ornaments (they get the same number back as they sent in), which isn't such a huge and stressful commitment as some of the other swaps around are. I know that I can't participate in anything that I have to make more than just a few things in because I don't have the time and I get very stressed out! Both started as plain paper mache ornaments that I obviously altered A LOT!!! They both measure about 7-1/2 to 8 inches in length (including the hanger pictured). Please feel free to leave me a comment letting me know what you think of them. Hope you are enjoying the holiday season so far! :)
