Hi there, Jew here.
I love the Pintester and I wanted to be involved in the Christmas Pintester Movement (link won’t be live until 12 a.m. EST on November 15). So I don’t celebrate the titular holiday. It’s never stopped me from eating Christmas cookies, so why should I let it stop me from making ornaments?
So obviously I don’t have a tree. I also don’t have a Hannukah bush because I refuse to believe that that’s a thing. I considered making something related to Hannukah. Then I considered making something related to Thanksukah (stop trying to make “Thanksgivukkah” happen. It’s not going to happen!) After discussing with Allyssa, I decided the most practical course of action would be to make an ornament that could double as a cat toy.
Cut to, me attempting to make a pom pom ornament:
Without reading the directions, I assumed I had all of the appropriate supplies. I didn’t. I own a giant bag of pom poms (because who doesn’t?) and ribbon and a glue gun, but no Styrofoam balls. By the time I actually sat down to do this (last night at about 7 pm), it was way too late and I was way too lazy to actually go out and buy a ball that I was going to cover in other fuzzier balls.
And the final result was pretty impressive:
So what’s the verdict? Well, it looks like a homemade ornament that maybe a 5 year old would make. And Willow didn’t seem to particularly appreciate it as a cat toy. However, she did find a good use for it:
