I was asked to "help" make ornaments for the families in DH's Battallion. Which actually ended up meaning I made 200 of these puppies. I did have some help thank goodness! Anyhow, we found these clear Christmas Balls at Hobby Lobby for cheap. The Engineer Castle (DH's unit is an Engineer unit in the Army) I was able to borrow from one of the other wives in the unit. She got it from a store at Ft. Leavenworth. The numbers (70 for the unit, and 2006 for the year) were written in red sharpie. Everything was written and stamped on transperencies that were cut into circles using the coluzzle and then I rolled them up and stuck them in the ball. Tinsle was added inside to give the ornaments some sparkle. A red ribbon tied at the top completed these super easy but fun ornaments. They were a hit!
