Fire

I had just a minimal idea of what I wanted for the "Fire" ornament, I knew I'd have to use orange, red and yellow. I wasn't quite sure how. I ended up splitting the base with red and yellow, I also ran a little of gold trim around the ornament to use as a guide for my fire. You can see some of it in the above photo, they remind me of sparklers popping off at each side.
I decided on a whirly black base just because black pops with the red and yellow.

Sequins and gold beads adorn the red part of the ball, I felt this had to be different from the yellow although I don't know why!

The back of the "fire" seems bare.... a call for some more gold was in order!

The red side reminds me of a fancy shirt.

I thought the gold tassel was the perfect addition. C&G Design

The gold tassel really gives this ornament elegance and punch. Nice job! All I've done this Christmas season is knit dishcloths. Makes me look lazy, Hugs, Kathleen

So pretty. It must take forever to put on all that tiny detail. It will be fun getting these out every year and remember making. them

Dawn, your patience amazes me. How many more? I agree that the gold tassel is perfect. I have lots of tassels so will be using that idea.
