A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas – Day 2

                                    A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas 2017 

Welcome to Day 2 of my 12 Days of Christmas 2017. This is my 4th year in a row bringing you 12 Days of Christmas from A WandafulThing.

Today’s gift is quite easy and simple. Part thrifted, part new. I have had this Santa wine box for many years. I purchased it at Salvation Army for $1.50, I have used it in my Christmas decor many times and decided this year I would use it as it was intended.

I’ve been invited to a Christmas gathering and the hosts enjoy red wine.  I picked up a bottle of South African Shiraz and packed it into the box.  No need for any further embellishment. Hope they like it!!

 

It’s been a great deal of fun preparing for this event, and I can’t wait to show you what the next Wandaful Thing  is – be sure to come back for Day 3.

Here is a recap from yesterday along with links to all the Wandaful Things I created last year (2016).

A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas – Day 1

                  Welcome to A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas 

I am thrilled to be able to bring you A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas for the 4th year in a row. I’m excited as this year the theme of all of my posts will be about thrifted, gifted (diy) and vintage items as Christmas presents.

I will be posting a new post every other day, starting today (November 20th) ending on December 12th – how fitting!

My first present is going to be a gifted (DIY) idea repurposing a wooden tray I found at  Goodwill for $2.00 . I really wish I had found a partridge to go with my pear tray (groan), if I had, I might not have painted it but instead made corny jokes all through the season.

I would have spray painted the tray outside but in my neck of the woods it is already winter soooo I hand painted it (6 coats) with white craft paint.  It took forever to cover the pears. Maybe I should have found that partridge.

 

I used my Cricut to make the vinyl cutout.  I wanted it simple so I went with “Be Jolly” in red vinyl.  I found the free svg on LoveSVG.com
