You were just blown away, right? I know...not really.
I really only had to make the "Noel" letters. Basically I went to Hobby Lobby and picked out four different style letters around the same size. Here's how it turned out:
This rotund couple were made by Mom when I was younger. She used to make all kinds of adorable Santas. They are really really cute! Mrs. Claus' apron and Santa's hat are both navy with gold stars. I wish I had more of her creations to show you. I'm not sure where they all went.
After I had those things up, it seemed lopsided. I glittered up some pinecones. I threw those in a lantern with cranberries and some silver ornaments. It was still missing something, so I added a bow. It still seems to need height. Ah well...next year!
I'm so excited about the item in the next pic! It's my future kitchen lamp! Do you see it? I didn't at first either. Mom saw it at the Wisteria Outlet. It's a capital...or "cool hunk of wood with my favorite colors" I'll show you pics of how it goes together when we actually get it together.
