Made with an old pie plate, two old clock faces, clock gears, a cherub, scrabble tiles, and beeswax
We had to put our 13.5 year-old greyhound down right before Christmas. So me and my girls made commemorative ornaments.
Mine is made of a tag from a winter coat, and miscellaneious junk. Including her Home Again ID tag.
 
My girls ornaments were created with juice cans and junk and some beads. In addition, they each used one of Willows tags and (this is gross but it was their idea) one of her toe nails.
 
I apologize for the blurry photo for the front side of their ornaments.
 
My girls are 4 and 7.

I'm afraid I wouldn't have gone with the toenail idea, but children don't think of it the way us adults do. My five year old niece wanted to keep her grandmothers skeleton after she passed...can you imagine! Georgia Posted: 12:46 pm on February 10th
