Day 5 of 10 Days of Christmas Crafts and GF Cookies

Here we go with Day 5 of the Christmas Craft and GF Christmas Cookie season!

On Vancouver Island, this December 5th, 2019, it is cloudy, threatening more rain, chilly but well above zero.  I can see my neighbours' outdoor huge ornamental candles planted into their green lawn.  This is not Christmas Card Country-- or not yet this year!  But the spirit of Christmas is nigh.

Our craft today is a little goofy, but that's okay.

Have you checked out some of the really interesting Christmas trees decorated in malls for charity auctions and stood gawking at one that would never have occurred to you: say, covered with bright red and green dinky toy vehicles like the one your Uncle has on the shelves in his 'man cave'.  But doesn't it show just how creative people can be when push comes to shove?  Christmas trees range from the most majestic and elegantly decorated to the blah red bows that you might see in an apartment lobby.

In between majestic and blah, you might find a tree with funny but fascinating ornaments-- colourful and fun, like little children playing dress-up!

Today's recycled ornaments are like that.  You can imagine and make what you want, from the popular Grinch to cute penguins to the usual cast of characters or decorated with your unique imaginings, using a recycled incandescent light bulb.
