Day 8- 12 Days of Christmas 2019-Pinterest Inspired

               A Wandaful Thing 12 Days of Christmas 2019 – Day 8

I’m so excited to share what I have been up to so far in my 12 Days of Christmas Pinterest Inspired projects. Today is Day 8 and I bring you another ornament. This one has a nautical theme.

Day 8

I found some clear glass ornaments at the thrift store and swirled white acrylic paint on the inside to make the ornament white.

I purchased an SVG file from thehungryjpeg.com you can find that here. I changed it up a bit and adjusted it to fit my ornament.

I used my Cricut Maker to cut out some navy  permanent vinyl and adhered it to the ornament. I found this wonderful contrasting ribbon at Walmart.

I think the ribbon was the perfect accent for the ornament. I had some blue striped twine in my craft stash and decided to use that to hang the ornament from the tree. I really like the way it turned out.

This was my inspiration which can be found here for sale at etsy.

So what do you think, was my version a pass or a fail?? In my books it’s a definite pass.

It’s been a great deal of fun preparing for this event, and I can’t wait to show you what Wandaful Things I’ll be up to next. :)

Day 7- 12 Days of Christmas 2019-Pinterest Inspired

               A Wandaful Thing 12 Days of Christmas 2019 – Day  7

Welcome to Day 7 of my 12 Days of Christmas 2019 -Pinterest Inspired. This year my theme was to make all 12 items from things that inspired me on Pinterest.

Today is Day 7 – a snow globe ornament made from Dollar Tree items. All of the items were bought at the Dollar Tree and the total cost was under $5.00

These are the items you will need for your snow globe ornament.

I glued the tiny bottle brush trees, small bench and lamp post to the inside of the cap of the ornament. I measured out some epsom salt and glitter and put them in the bell shape of the ornament. Then I screwed the cap on the ornament.  I added a strip of Nova Scotia tartan fabric to use as the ornament hanger.

This was my inspiration, you can find it here.

So what do you think, was this a pass or a fail??

It’s been a great deal of fun preparing for this event, and I can’t wait to show you what Wandaful Things I’ll be up to next. :)

Day 6- 12 Days of Christmas 2019-Pinterest Inspired

               A Wandaful Thing 12 Days of Christmas 2019 – Day  6

Welcome to Day 6 of my 12 Days of Christmas 2019 Pinterest Inspired things to make. I have to admit that this item is NOT inspired by Pinterest but I am hoping that after I post it to on my Pinterest account it becomes an inspiration for others to copy or modify and make.

Day 6  – I did a hack to adorable little IKEA Vinterfest lanterns.

As soon as I saw them at IKEA ( a package of three was $7.99), I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them.

For another project back in the Spring, I had purchased SVG maps of the Canadian Maritime provinces to use with HTV vinyl for baby onsies and t-shirts.  I had to really reduce the size of the maps to try and fit them on the little lanterns, but I did and it worked. I was worried about how my Cricut maker was going to cut the small version of the maps from permanent vinyl, but it did a great job.

The one above is a cut out from an SVG of a map of Cape Breton Island and the heart represents where I am from. I kinda love it 🙂 Continue reading Day 6- 12 Days of Christmas 2019-Pinterest Inspired

Day 5- 12 Days of Christmas 2019-Pinterest Inspired

               A Wandaful Thing 12 Days of Christmas 2019 – Day 5

I’m so excited that my 12 Days of Christmas has begun. I usually try to stick to a theme each year, this year I am making 12 things that are Pinterest Inspired.

Day 5 is a wine bottle upcycled into Christmas decor.

A very dear friend of mine was kind enough to drink the wine that was in the bottle so I could have it to use for one of my 12 Days of Christmas 2019 Pinterest Inspired items. God bless her.

I found an SVG I liked and sized it to fit on the bottle. I used my Cricut Maker to cut out white permanent vinyl and adhered it to the bottle. I placed a set of battery operated lights inside to complete the look.

 

I like the way it turned out.

This was my inspiration which can be found here.

So what do you think, was my version a pass or a fail??

It’s been a great deal of fun preparing for this event, and I can’t wait to show you what Wandaful Things I’ll be up to next. :)

Day 4 – 12 Days of Christmas 2019-Pinterest Inspired

               A Wandaful Thing 12 Days of Christmas 2019 – Day 4

I’m so excited that my 12 Days of Christmas has begun. I usually try to stick to a theme each year, this year I am making 12 things that are Pinterest Inspired.

Day 4 is this Coastal Inspired Sea Shell artwork.

I recycled this thrift store painting by using the backside of the floral picture covered it with burlap and painted the frame with black acrylic paint. I used some leftover shells from another craft and painted them with Navy Dixie Belle chalk paint (except for one). I dry brushed them with white chalk paint. I used E6000 to attach the shells to the burlap. I like the way it turned out.

This was my inspiration by Soul Surfer.

So what do you think, was my version a pass or a fail??
