Reed Ornaments


 The  desire to decorate around the house increases with
the approaching holidays. Baskets are perfect for filling with a variety of ornaments, small gifts and greenery.

  I also like to use basket supplies to make reed ornaments.  Reed ornaments can be used in a variety of ways.  They can be added to wreaths, gift packages and hung as tree decorations.

Reed ornaments are a great way to use leftover short reed scraps left over from other basket projects.  They can be made using different colored reeds and different widths of reed. 

Individual reed loops can be joined together to form star-like ornaments.  Ribbons, pinecones, and greenery add the finishing touches.
