Homemade Christmas Tree Ornaments

I was brought up as a hunter-and-gatherer, learning to make things with nature rather then running to the store to buy them. So my 2 sons and I collected a bunch of twigs in the park, tied them together with some colored elastic bands and added grosgrain ribbon and voila...great Christmas tree ornaments! My husband thinks I have gone voodoo crazy on him, but I think they are totally earthy and cool and a great activity to do with the kids (not to mention economical!)
