CHRISTMAS IN JULY: Cotton Blossom Ornament!

 Cotton Blossom Ornament!
 We lived in Alabama for 2 years.
After growing up in Utah for 30 years...it was quite a change!
It snowed one time and stuck to the ground for about 4 hours.
One very different sight was the cotton fields!
I called it Alabama Snow!  It's basically Southern snow.
We went to the field after they harvested and gathered up a few remaining blossoms.
 Have you seen real cotton?
It's amazing!  It is proof that a loving God created this earth.
I also used some clear plastic ornaments.
This giant sphere ornament had too small of an opening and I had to remove the
 cotton tuft from the pod to fit it inside.  It looks just like a big ball of cotton!
 For these other 2...I used the snap in half plastic ornaments.
That way I could fit the entire blossom inside...it's packed in there!
 But it shows the open pod on the other side!
 I think they are adorable little reminders of our time in the South!
 And they would be easy to make and send for gifts to those of us not
 lucky enough to have cotton fields in our neighborhood!
