Merry Christmas (and Christmas projects)

MERRY CHRISTMAS
AND
HAPPY HOLIDAYS


My Christmas Tree.

I have a couple more projects to share and then no more until next year.  I hope everyone has a great Christmas and holidays.  I will be spending plenty of time with my family and most likely eating way too much.

First are a few more door hangers.


Start off with a plain door hanger, spray it with Spray Stain, add a stencil and some ink, then a tree with birds or butterflies and a cute saying.  

 This one is sprayed with Ice Spruce Spray Stain.


Take a stencil and ink with Ice Spruce Distress ink.


Stamp a saying and cut it out.  Then add a little ink to the edges.

SUPPLIES:

After cutting out the tree and butterflies, I embossed them with two colors (not shown) and attached the butterflies to the tree.  I added extra butterflies for the empty space.


DOOR HANGER #2 - SUPPLIES:

I sprayed the door hanger with Tarnished Brass.  Used a stencil and Peacock Feather and Wild Honey Distress ink.  I stamped the image directly on the door hanger in black.  The birds are embossed with Wendy Vecchi's embossing powders.





DOOR HANGER #3 - SUPPLIES:

For this one, I sprayed the hanger with Tarnish Brass and used Peacock Feather and Mowed Grass or Peeled Paint.  I used wood birds and embossed them with Wendy Vecchi's embossing powers.  Also for the tree cut out, I embossed the leaves only and colored the tree branches with a brown marker.




My last present is a gift to my sister-in-law (my brother's wife).  I got the idea from Pinterest.  So a few months ago I "burrowed" her baby's coming home clothes.  I also got one of her first pictures in the hospital in those clothes and made a shadow box.  Here is the result:


Just poster board with spray stain on it, ribbon and tape.  That's it.  I know it is missing her name "Annabelle", but I ran out of room.  I might add her name on the outside of the frame.  She is so adorable.  I think my sister-in-law is going to love it.  

Alright I'm done sharing all my gifts that I have made.  Now it's time to enjoy the holidays.

BE MERRY AND BRIGHT
