Cookies For Santa

Merry Christmas everyone!

This week’s tablescape, as well as our entire house has a Santa theme.  It was inspired by a little plate that I found at Walmart.  It had just enough whimsy to touch my heart.  I hope you enjoy it.

Washi Tape Christmas Ornament

Christmas is only three weeks away!  Oh my goodness, where has the time gone?  I love Christmas.  It’s my favorite time of the year.  I love decorating for it, making gifts for it, watching all of the Christmas movies that are on & listening to my favorite Christmas songs.  And what have I been up to since I’m in the Christmas mood?

I’ve been making some new ornaments again (so what else is new?)  This one is so simple to make.  If you have a white matte glass ornament, some silver sequins, glitter Washi tape & some glue, you can make these by the dozens.

Atomic Mirror Ornament

We’re only a few weeks away from Christmas, so I decided to get a head start on some new Christmas ornaments.  The first ornament for this season is actually a trial for a much larger project.  I wasn’t sure how it would turn out, but I’m actually quite pleased.  It was easier to make than I thought it would be.

This is my Atomic Mirror Ornament.

Ornaments for the Sports Lover

I was looking online for a Pittsburgh Steeler ornament for my nephew, husband and a friend as a Christmas present.  (They are all major Steeler fans.)  I found one that I really liked, but they wanted $6.00 plus shipping & handling for just one.  I knew I could make them for a much better price.  Since I was making them, why stop at just the Steelers?

These are so easy to make, and very inexpensive, especially now that there are after Christmas sales going on.  And the best part is that they can be customized for any sports team!

Here’s what I came up with:

Brown Christmas Wreath

Another Christmas has come and gone.  Most of the gifts have been exchanged.  (Although there are a few gifts that still need exchanged.  Being sick over the holidays is no fun.)

This wreath was made for a friend who loves the color brown.  I couldn’t post this earlier, because the recipient of this wreath reads my page, and she’d have known what she was getting before she got it.

Lit Christmas Tree Painting

This is, by far, one of the most ambitious projects I’ve done to date, but I’m so proud of how it turned out.  (excuse me while I pat myself on my back)

This is a long post because I’m going to take you step by step to show you how I did it.

This is my Lit Christmas Tree Painting.

Christmas Cross

I can’t believe that Christmas is only 10 days away.  Time is flying by, and I’m not nearly ready for it.  I’m still trying to get the decorating done, and there are still a few more gifts to get and make and wrap.  Is anyone else in the same boat that I’m in?

The Christmas season bring so much creativity to me.  I often find myself working on projects at 4:00 in the morning. This is one of those projects that I finished in a couple of hours.  It’s a quick and easy Christmas craft that can be customized depending on the fabric & paint that you choose.  It’s also a project that the little ones can do.
