Day 2 – A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas 2019 -Pinterest Inspired

                  A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas 2019 – Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of my 12 Days of Christmas 2019. This is my 6th year in a row bringing you 12 Days of Christmas from A Wandaful Thing. Today’s Pinterest inspired idea are these cute little wooden bead snowman ornaments.

I purchased these beads at Michaels for $5.99. That means you could make 4 ornaments from one string of beads.  All you need to do is string three beads on the twine of your choice.

I like the wood look so didn’t bother to paint them.  I had some different types and colors of twine that I used to make each one and mixed and matched the bows and the twine. Permanent black and orange markers finished the look.

These were my inspiration, you can find a link to them here .

So what do you think, was my version a pass or a fail?? I think mine were close to a fail but I will still hang them from my Christmas tree 🙂

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

Here is a recap of the 12 Days of Christmas 2019 so far:

Spring has Sprung (for some of us…)

Spring Has Sprung Watercolor Printable

I don’t know about you but for the last couple of weeks I’ve been doing nothing but thinking about Spring.

Could it be that the weather has warmed up ever so slightly? Could it be that the snow is starting to melt?

Could it be that the time change has taken place? I think for me it is a combination of all three AND the fact that Easter is just around the corner. Continue reading Spring has Sprung (for some of us…)
