What I've Been Up To This Week!


I have been a little nervous about what I was gonna sell for Christmas decor.
Since I got the building so late in the year there hasn't been enough time for me to order anything in.
So, I thought I would just whip up a few things.
Not gonna be much, but I'll do better next year.
I love the way these little trees turn out!
These are metal cones that had a nail on the end of them for poking in the ground to hold flowers.
I cut the nail off and covered them with stained fabric.
I only had 4 of these things, wish I had more.
I'm not sure if they make paper cones for sale or not!


You could decorate these little trees anyway you want!
I kept my decorations neutral!





Then I moved on to some ornaments.
I had tons of corks and tons of prisms, put them together, added a little seam binding, and there you have it!
Next, I am gonna work on some ornaments made from some tiny tin spoons I have!





I have 36 of these made for the tree.
I've got a long way to go, but I know I will get there.
Two of the shops near me are having their Christmas open house this weekend! YIKES!
Guess I'll be a little behind!

You clever girl! These will look wonderful in a client's home.
BTW My Michaels sells 2 different sizes of cones and Jo Anns sells them in pkgs of three medium sized in the needlework section.

Then I searched and found this :D

You have been pretty busy! I love what you have whipped up! It feels like the holidays here this morning in sunny southern CA. The temps were in the 50's this morning. Way to cold for me! Have a great day!

Take care, Sue

Looking good and I love your cork and prism ornament idea. Not sure if you have a Craft Warehouse in your area, but they have three different sizes there.
