I found these 2" metal discs on clearance at Joann's three years ago, because I know at least two Christmas ornament making seasons have gone by without using them. The first year I didn't even really try. Last year I did settle on the mail box design, but then I just couldn't bring myself to get started or commit to colors or something. This year, I finally sucked it up and it really wasn't too bad! After that, I was motivated to pick out and execute the cactus design fairly quickly, though I decided not to bother with a background. I glued felt circles on the back to finish them off.

While cleaning out my parent's basement last winter, we found some airmail envelopes which I happily claimed to repurpose. After cutting out the air mail logo, I mod podged one directly on to the one glass heart I had left (previously used for sprinkles and spools of ribbon). I mod podged another logo onto card stock and glued it on to a wooden spool.

I used these 3" wreaths years ago to make simple ornaments with fake flowers glued to the top where the button is in this one, so I've probably had this one left over since about 2006. I had some glittery reindeer from the fireplace Christmas "ornament" of 2017. I tied on the beads, and the reindeer fit nicely in place, but once I glued on the bow and the heart button, I decided to glue everything in place.
