Christmas Decoration Swap 2013!

My bestie/sister/friendy over at Art by Anya have a yearly tradition of making Christmas decorations for each other. To be honest I nearly forgot as things with my dad had been happening. My thinking cap wasn't working to clearly. But after a Whangarei Bloggy Girls get together I took some suggestions home with me.

When I go to the op shops sometimes I just grab things and decide later what to do with them. I found some old silver coasters in a bric-a-brak bargain bin and they have been sitting at home waiting to be re-purposed. I decided these would be great to use as decorations. I drilled a hole in each coaster and masked off portions of each and gave them a couple of coats of spray paint.

To send it off I crocheted a little bag for it. 

I am looking forward to seeing what Anya has for me!
