Recycled Star Ornament with Quilling

Do you make your own ornaments?  I used to many years ago.  I thought I would give it another try.  Here is the result.

Whadda ya think?  It's actually prettier than the picture shows.  It kinda looks flat here.  It's not though.  It is very fluffed out. 

The felt pieces are square alcohol pads.  Don't worry, they were just used to sanitize with, then washed out.  They make very good felt pieces, and sooo much easier than cutting small squares. 

The quilled flower is from school papers ready for the trash.  If you will remember, I also used this for my Recycled Winter Plaque.

The hanging thread is tie from a mailed package I had received.

This was fun and not hard at all. 

What have you made lately?
