Welcome to Christmas Every Monday! Each Monday in October I will post a simple but fun Christmas project with tutorial so you can start on your handmade Christmas items.
Today, we are starting with a cute little Christmas vignette.
You will need:
A small crate or wooden tray
Small artificial Christmas trees
Merry Christmas wooden cutout
Spray Paint (I used a dark blue Indigo)
I originally was going to use a small wooden tray but then remembered I had these little wooden crates.
Spray paint the crate in a dark blue and the Merry Christmas cutout in white.
Cut the miniature fence to fit inside the crate and hot glue it down.
Hot glue the little Christmas trees. I got a whole bag of these trees at a church garage sale. The little bottle brush trees would be darling also.
Glue the greeting on.
Put hot glue around the bottom of the trees and sprinkle with the artificial snow. That stuff goes everywhere!!
And you are finished with your little Merry Christmas vignette. I think this would be cute in a bookshelf.
A Christmas Tussie Mussie!!
You will need:
Package of Party Hats
Small ribbon for hanger
Fabric or Wrapping Paper
Christmas Picks to put in when finished
Wider Ribbon for bows on side
Red Ball Fringe
These are so cute and so simple. They are great to tuck a gift card in and hang on the tree. The base for this is a Happy Birthday party hat! I got these at Dollar Tree - 8 for $1.00. They are a perfect size.
The first thing you do is hot glue a ribbon on each side for the hanger.
Lay your cone shape down on the fabric or wrapping paper and roll it to get an idea of what size you need to cover it in.
Start at the back seam and lay down a line of hot glue and start fitting the fabric to the paper cone. I add dabs of hot glue as I work around the cone and also add a line of it around the top.
When you finish, carefully cut the fabric off that extends above the top of the cone making it even.
Hot glue on red ball fringe and make two big bows to glue on each side where the handle is glued.
Add some Christmas greenery and you are done. A whole bunch of these would be so cute on a tree.
