How are you doing on your Christmas preparations? Is your home all decked out, cards all sent, cookies all baked, and presents all purchased and wrapped? No??? Well, join the club! While I am officially thru with decorating, I've not really done much in the way of baking, and still need to send out cards. As for gifts, this is going to be a less is more kinda year! All of which will hopefully allow us to focus on the true meaning of Christmas, and not just on all of the commercialized stuff!
I have been enjoying a bit of Christmas crafting, though! Since I'm a "use what you've got" kind of girl, I've been trying to focus on creating with what I already have on hand, rather than buying a bunch of supplies at the craft store. Awhile ago, I found a stack of petite vintage jello molds at the thrift store, and quickly snatched them up. While not at all sure what I would do with them, I just knew that inspiration would eventually strike!
My oh so crafty friend Kim, over at Musings From Kim K came to the rescue, and gave me some tips and ideas, as she had created some of these herself.
So, I gathered bits of this and that, and began filling a mold with moss, faux greenery (glittered, of course!) and berries, and this adorable little German glass glittered bird. A glittered silver snowflake adds even more sparkle!
I also added a petite aqua vintage Christmas ornament, and fashioned a handle out of a silver pipe cleaner.
Just look at that cute little face? Isn't he just darling?
I had so much fun making this (thanks again, Kim for your help!), and can't wait to make some more. I think a bunch of these hung on the Christmas tree would be so cute!
Now go out and find something to create, and be sure to add a little glitter while you are at it!!!
