Christmas Trees -- featuring Paper House Productions :)

Hi everyone :)

I wanted to share some Christmas gifts I made :)

I used some wine corks, and after gluing them together, I painted them and then distressed them with sand paper.  After adding the spools to the bottom, I used the "Christmas Joy" embellishments from Paper House Productions to dress them up. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

Ugly Christmas Sweater ornaments - made by Brookie :)

Hi everyone :)

I wanted to share the Christmas gifts that Brookie made :)

All year I save pins on Pinterest, and then let Brookie go through it and see what she wants to make for everyone for Christmas.  This year she chose Ugly Sweater ornaments, and we used this pattern :)

I helped her by cutting the 'sweaters' out and gluing them together, and then I gathered a TON of holiday embellishments and let her go crazy on them! :)

She made 70 total for friends/family and classmates :)

First we traced the pattern onto felt :)

Then we glued a front piece and a back piece together with a mini Tim Holtz hanger in between :)

Once they were dry ... 

We gathered a ton of holiday embellishments ... 

And she went to town on decorating them into beautiful UGLY Christmas sweater ornaments :)

And here is the finished product :)

They are like snowflakes -- no two are alike ;) 

Can you guess that this one is ours?!?!? :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
