Merry Christmas!

I just finished my Christmas Tree.  I made some of my own ornaments this year and I made my very own Angel for the top of my Tree.  I used the colors of cream, gold, and silver.  Next year, I will use other colors.  I think I will try to make more tree ornaments also next year.  I want to wish everyone a happy holiday and God bless all of you.

Merry, Merry Christmas, Chan

This is the Angel I made for the top of my Tree

Here are the Christmas Hearts.  I used paper from a Christmas stack and added paper roses, wooden buttons, and swirl roses that I made.

I made this to put on my tree because I didn't have any religious ornaments.

This was a 4 ft tree with the lights already attached to it.  This made it very easy to put together. 

Here's a closeup of my handmade Christmas Hearts.

Have a Very Merry Christmas.  God bless, Chan

Christmas Wreath

Happy Holidays!!

I needed a wreath for my door but I didn't want to spend a lot of money.  Off to the dollar tree!  My Christmas theme this year is White, Silver, and Gold.  I found a nice large Santa Claus Christmas tree ornament and I brought 2 of them.  It was the perfect size for my wreath.  I also picked up two bunches of white poinsettia flowers.

I wrapped the twig wreath with some 2 inch gold ribbon I had around the house.  Then I put my Santa Claus on there with two white poinsettia flowers and then I had my Christmas Wreath.  Very inexpensive and cost effective.  Proving that you don't have to spend a fortune on Christmas decorations!

God bless, Chan

Dollar Tree Crafts!!  The wreath, Santa Claus, and White Poinsettia flowers all purchased for $1.00.  Christmas wreaths this size are selling for $15.00 - $20.00 in local dept stores.  I was able to save $$$ by making my own.
I added a strip of ribbon in the back to support Santa Claus and to keep him from falling through the wreath hole.  I also used kite string to fashion a hook to hang this on a nail.
