WELCOME TO DAY 6 OF MY 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS DECORATING, CRAFT AND GIFT IDEA CHALLENGE.
Today’s FABULOUS idea comes from The Surly Mermaid. She is a good friend of mine and does monthly “snippet” blog posts here at A Wandaful Thing. She has many other talents besides her quirky , off the cuff writing style and she is sharing one with us today.
Tools- pruning shears,
small wire cutters (optional
glue gun (optional)
1 – Bundle of small pine boughs (I bought mine at Home Depot as I live in the city and don’t have access to a tree that needed trimming :))
2 – Large pot with dirt- I used an outside garden pot that I grew tomatoes in this past summer.
3 – Decorative bits and bobs on sticks- I bought some of these at Home Depot as well for $4.99 each, they included pine cones and wooden gold orbs.
4 – Long twigs from a colorful bush or large sparkly plastic red ones from the Dollar or craft store.
5 – I made a bow with ribbon I had (doesn’t it just Roar Christmas…lol) and wired it to a trimmed pine bough with florist wire – a twist tie would work just as well or y0u could use a hot glue gun to secure it in place.
It looks fantastic on her stoop – it’s indeed A Wandaful Thing!!
Thanks Surly for sharing this with us!
