DIY Cross Ornament

Side effect of making my own DIY Bamboo Shades a couple months back: I had a lot of leftover twig pieces. Like, a ton. I could've thrown them out, but my basement is a large, useful storage place, so I stuck them in a box and put them off to the side in hopes they could be useful eventually. 

That day has come. Twig ornaments are a thing. Most people have to scrounge around in their backyard to find some twigs. I just grabbed the box from the basement. Easy-peasy, and I have enough twigs to make every twig ornament my heart has ever dreamed of.

First up: this super easy DIY Cross Ornament. Done in 5 minutes or less, given your glue gun heats up in less than five minutes. Because that's the longest part...

Tie a bow (I like these bows,) and glue it in place on top of the cross.
