A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas 2017 – Day 10

                Welcome to A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas – Day 10

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.

Today is Day 10 and this gift falls into the “gifted” category.  A bottle brush snow globe. This is not a new idea as it has been trending on Pinterest, YouTube and all over the internet not just this year but it seems in past years. There are many variations on this idea and I decided to use a mason jar as my globe (no surprise as everyone knows how much I love mason jars). This gift was so easy to pull together and took a total of five minutes.

I found a little set of fake mini lights in my craft stash and decided to string them on the bottle brush tree before I glued the tree to the lid.  Just add fake snow and it’s done!

 

I think it is really cute and I’m not sure I want to give this gift away. For the moment it is sitting on a shelf in my living room.  Maybe it’s Merry Christmas to me??

 

I invite you to come back and see what Day 11 brings.

Thrifted, gifted and vintage gifts are A WandafulThing, unique and one of a kind.

A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas 2017 – Day 7

                Welcome to A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas – Day 7

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.

Today is Day 7 and this gift falls into the “thrifted” and “gifted” category. This gift is for my mother, who is the great grandmother to my daughter’s three children. A beautiful boy who is 2 and a half and a set of twins 4 months old. This gift was actually the one that cost the least amount of money but I am sure it will be the one most treasured, especially for a person who doesn’t really need anything.

I found two very similar photo frames at Goodwill for $2.00 and a small wooden plaque for $0.50.  I soaked the top of the plaque with a wet rag and the paper picture peeled right off.

 

I printed and cut two pictures to fit into the frames and printed, cut and mod podged the third picture onto the little wooden plaque. 

I just know Great Nanny Louise is going to love this present. I smiled the whole time I was putting it together. Three adorable faces we all love.

I invite you to come back and see what Day 8 brings.

Thrifted, gifted and vintage gifts are A WandafulThing, unique and one of a kind.
