Hi everyone!! :)
I have been a busy girl this past week making stuff for our Christmas Eve and Christmas Day meals :) Not the food portion... lol ... but the crafty side of our meals :)
Brian's family is Polish and we have a lot of Polish foods on Christmas Eve and we have friends and family over for dinner :)
Meri gave me this large roll of Vintage Christmas paper and I cut out each image and used them for place setting cards for our table :)
And here is what I made with the Vintage paper roll :)
And I have been PINNING like CRAZY lately and have been inspired to make some goodies with what I have pinned!!!!! :)
I pinned THIS from Mary Ann and was inspired to make these cuties for our Christmas Eve table -- each person that will be here for dinner will have one of these at their place setting :)
These are battery powered tea lights that I turned into snowmen :) I found the tea lights at Target :)
And here they are all lit up :)
I also pinned THIS and was inspired to make this :)
I am entering this into Frosted Designs latest challenge which is to use Silver AND Gold on your project :)
Ok ... I am trying to make this a long story short :)
If you remember the lampshade I turned into a centerpiece from this POST HERE ... I had found some Fall leaves on "fake" branches at Target ... and I used the leaves on my lampshade centerpiece and some of the 'fake' branches also on that project :) .... well ... I had some of the 'fake' branches left over from that project and cut them into sized pieces for this project .....
I stacked them and glued them along the way :)
It was getting a little top heavy .... so took half a toilet paper roll and covered it in 7gypsies "Santa's Journey" paper and created my "Tree Trunk" .... then I placed the stacked branches in the "trunk" for better balance .....
I then took a chipboard circle and again took 7gypsies "Santa's Journey" paper and covered the chipboard circle to create a "tree skirt" .....
I then had these little presents from the Dollar Store and placed them under my "tree" ... and there is my Silver and Gold for this challenge :)
I then took more 7gypsies "Santa's Journey" papers and created paper chains to go on my tree :)
This will be going on our Christmas Eve dinner table :)
And the last thing I wanted to share is the napkin rings I made for Christmas :)
I used scraps of Christmas papers and some wood chippies that my dear friend Jeanet sent me :)
Almost ready now for our Christmas Eve and Christmas Day meals :)
