The Eagle Shield Senior Center was asked to decorate 10 ornaments for the official White House tree. Considering that 800 such balls hang on the lavish tree, it would be easy for their ornaments to fade into the branches.
But in addition to capturing the Obamas' attention and Oprah's cameras, the ornaments will be featured in a special on the Home and Garden Network on Sunday.
After seeing the ornaments, a film crew traveled to Browning two weeks ago to capture the four artists re-creating the ornaments.
