When:
Monday, December 9
6:30-8:30
Where:
Ruiz Branch Library
1600 Grove Blvd.
512-974-7500
Who: Adults interested in crafting
What: Ornaments!

Please join us for our third annual ornament extravaganza! I'm not sure any of us can believe it is actually December (where did this year go?!) If you're anything like me, you're starting to panic because you haven't actually started your holiday shopping. Well, panic no more! Attend craft night to create a bevy of delightful ornaments that double as perfect homemade gifts.

This year we will experiment with glass ornaments, fabric scraps, and Modge Podge as well as our traditional focus on felt. We will have several templates available, but you are also able to design your own creations. As always, all supplies are provided.  We hope you can join us.

My husband and I went in 2011 and we BOTH had fun. He made a gingerbread man and I made a toadstool felt ornament. It was easy, fun and they are super cute and are still the stars of our tree. We weren't able to make it last year and were very sad but nothing can keep us away this year.
