Westcoast Tree (or Wall) Ornaments

Ever since my kids were small, I’ve enjoyed getting people involved in crafts at Christmas time. At potluck events, I offer: I’ll bring the craft!

For the past couple of years, I’ve assembled materials to have people create westcoast ornaments. I collect oyster shells on Hornby Island (aka “Magic Island) that already have holes in them. Then I take all sorts of stuff – lots of stuff – and people from aged 3 to 80 seem to enjoy it. Well, as Alexander Keith’s beer ads go: those who like it, like it a lot. I think it might not be everyone’s idea of a good time.

Here are some of the ones made in my housing co-op – We put them up in the hall each year and usually add a few by the time they go back in the box.
