Quick & Easy Ornament

The days until Christmas are counting down!  From now until then, I'll be sharing some "Quick & Easy" ideas with you to help make this time of year a little less stressful. 
I'm always looking for ways to create quick homemade gifts so this little ornament fits the bill!  The gate base is actually from an ornament/candle holder which I picked up last year in a gift shop clearance for $1.  I wasn't sure what I would do with it but I thought it would make a good start to some type of embellished or altered ornament. 
I removed the long candle holder portion (and saved it for who knows what else!).  I cut another snowflake rosette from my new  MINI SNOWFLAKE ROSETTES DIE  and topped it off with a clear gem.  I hot glued it to the gate and then attached the letter beads using Glossy Accents.  Done!
Keep your eyes peeled all year long for items like this that you can quickly add a homemade touch to.
