A very happy Monday and December to you!
I hope that you had a lovely Thanksgiving and weekend! Well, I started Christmas decorating on Thanksgiving evening as I couldn't wait any longer. I just love going through all the vintage treasures that have been packed away, waiting to bring Christmas cheer to my home. Along with decorating, I wanted to get started on some Christmas crafting, and one project I worked on this weekend was making my Christmas wreath.
I mentioned a few post ago I was collecting vintage plastic poinsettias for a wreath, and this is what I came up with!
I used a wire wreath form and just hot glued the poinsettias on. There is definitely room for more, and it will be fun to keep collecting them and add them on each year, but I also kinda like it how it is, with the exception of maybe adding some vintage plastic deer if I can find some.
I also wanted to use the 'Merry Christmas' sign I found recently in the wreath, and I am really lovin' how it all looks together. Such pretty, sparkly plastic goodness!
And, this is the wreath on my front door ready to welcome in sweet friends and family!
So, my list of Christmas projects seems to keep growing, and this is my newest one! I have been wanting to try a vintage Bucilla kit for awhile, and when I saw this adorable jeweled felt Santa mail bag, I was in love!
These are all the pieces which I think are so neat and I am excited to get started. I definitely don't think I will be finished by Christmas, as it looks like a lot of work sewing on all the sequins, but maybe not. Have you ever put one of these felt kits together? I look forward to showing you as I work on it this month.
These cuties I found last week at the thrift store. Those mice always get me, and the little elf boy is just as sweet!
And, this darling deer I found at Target a couple weeks ago. I also grabbed a brown one as they were just too sweet to pass up. I added some silver tinsel to give it that vintage sparkly touch! I find that this year in my Christmas crafting I am so into silvery tinsel, felt, and sequins. There is just something about it all that just makes me smile!
Well, I am off to finish some tote bags for a friend who will be gifted them to her co-workers for Christmas, finish decorating, and work on my felt stockings. What crafty goodness are you working?
Wishing you all a most lovely and creative week!
