Repurposed Salt Lid "Star" Christmas Ornament

Chipping with Charm: Repurposed Salt Shaker Lid Ornament...http://www.chippingwithcharm.blogspot.com/
Yep, I am "one of those"...
 I've started on my Christmas decorating and creating.
When you sell your wares in retail you have to find a way to "jump" into the Christmas "Spirit" a little earlier than most. We needed to have our booth at Antiques Downtown  ready for Christmas shoppers by November 1st this year, so that got me started.  And we celebrate Thanksgiving at my parents' house, so that frees me up to "dig in" a little earlier.  
(And hopefully be all decorated and ready to relax and enjoy in December?) 
I'm not going to lie...most years I just keep on creating up until December 24th. I can't help myself...its my favorite time of year.  And once I start I can't stop!

This is my first repurposed ornament of the season...

You may have heard that Minnesota got a "little" snow yesterday.  A little early for most considering our winter was so VERY long last year.  I decided to make the most of it and finish up a project that has been in my head for a while...
