Welcome to Christmas Every Monday - Part 3
NEW TWIN BABY GIRLS!!!!!
This is the newest addition to our family - twin girls born on Saturday - Laynee's sisters!
They were born 2 1/2 months premature but thank the Lord, they are doing fantastic. They are breathing on their own and all signs are good. Baby A on the left will be Kaycee and she weighed 2.6 and Baby B on the right will be Laycee and she weighed 3.4.
They are so TINY!! But, continue to remember them as they develop and grow.
Now, on to the Christmas stuff.....
The first photo is a very simple project. Buy the $.99 letters and paint them. You can buy two big jingle bells for about $1.99 and paint them also. Then add greenery at the top of the bell and you have a delightful and easy little project.
NOTE: When you buy your letters, make sure they will stand on their own. Some will and some won't so be sure and check when you get yours.
Christmas Card Holder
You will need:
1 yard 2 1/4" red grosgrain ribbon
1 yard 1 1/2" red/white stripe ribbon
Package 2" D Rings
Hot glue gun and glue
Take a piece of red ribbon 13" ribbon and fold in half. You will have ribbon overlapping at the back where the pin is.
Take a needle and thread and gather the center of the ribbon and pull tightly and knot.
Using a 2" length of ribbon, fold it into thirds and wrap around the middle and glue in the back.
Next, take 10" length and fold over gluing and notch each end.
With the red/white stripe ribbon, run thru the D Ring.
Glue down the ribbon. Then glue the bow to the top of the striped ribbon and you're done.
Next, I bought a $1.29 board at Michaels. You are going to Mod Podge torn up vintage book pages to the board.
Find a Christmas print - this one is from The Graphic Fairy that I copied on my copier.
Hot glue two strips of ribbon on evenly on the back.
I hot glued a small loop of tiny ribbon on the back for a hanger.
The next one is similar only I used a board with a small frame around it. I painted it red and Mod Podged vintage Christmas postcards - again from The Graphic Fairy.
Sorry about the glare. I took this before the Mod Podge had dried and it was still shiny.
This one was finished the same way as the one above. Just hot glue ribbon on the back.
This package of small clothespins with decorative details was in the Michael Dollar Bin.
Till next time, Judy
