A little bit of Christmas

You can all thank Hobby Lobby for this post.  They have had their Christmas out for at least a month already.  I was shopping there a few weeks ago and I couldn’t help but browse the Christmas sections.  Course browsing turned into buying and I ended up making two wreaths that you can find here. https://craftyboutiquebytam.wordpress.com/2017/09/02/busy-busy-week-much-needed-break/

While I was there I found a few cute items that I thought I would play around with.  One was a wooden christmas tree.  I had some supplies lying around. I gathered up some nice christmas garlands and berry picks. I then dusted off my cricut and went through my vinyl and picked 3 colors. A  silver, a glitter gold, and a glitter bronze.  I just love the stained wooden christmas tree’s decorated with words so I decided I would pick a few words out.  I chose Joy, Noel, and Peace.  I took measurements of each section and made my words to fit.   I then added some pretty Christmas garland and some berries.  I had this metal star in almost the same color as my stain that I wanted to use but it blended too much.  I ended up painting it red.   That was the touch it needed.  This is how it came together.  I hope y’all like it.

When I stained all the wood I stained several projects at once.  I also ended up completing all of these.

I might visit Hobby Lobby again tomorrow for more wreath supplies. I wonder if I can stick to my shopping list?

I hope you all have a fantabulous day.  Until next time.
