Christmas gift for my mother-in-law

Here are the pictures of the gift that I promised to show you the end of last week.

I got the idea from an item I saw on clearance at Michaels.

I found the metal tree at a thrift store a few months back and knew immediately what I would use it for. My mother-in-law has 11 children, and there were just enough branches to display 11 small ornament frames. I found similar frames at Ollie's. They were Jolie by You (or one of the Jolie lines), and they were $1.00 for 3 frames. I considered buying them but then decided I could easily do them myself for a lot less than $4.00. I was right! These look just like the Jolie ones, but I used thread to hang these, which is perfect for my little tree.

I don't have any pictures in them yet. I'm waiting to get to my sister-in-law's house and get some of the pictures that I need.
