I have had a very productive last two days. I made some huge progress on my quilt...which is turning out great so far I am happy to report! I also got some domestic type stuff taken care of, you know...laundry, bathrooms, dishes, etc. And I also finally answered some emails, responded to some comments, and caught up on some blog reading. And now I feel not only less overwhelmed but even more motivated to finish those projects AND I was even inspired to make a couple quick Christmas decorations!
Remember this post about my rub on Halloween subway art? Well I mentioned there that I found the rub ons at the Target dollar spot. At our Target right now they have put out all the Christmas dollar goodies and of course I had to see what they had!
Well no rub ons but they had some cute paper...
and theses foam candy canes...
I didn't know what I was going to do with them but I knew I had to have them!
Well today I came up with this...
Super cute, super quick, and super easy! Cut paper, stick on candy cane, put in frame. DONE.
I also had the little black frame that I used for another one of my Halloween decorations using the same rub ons.
Here's what it looked like then:
And here is what it looks like now:
I just used some white felt for the background and cut out some holly leaves out of dark green felt and then hand stitched on the holly and 3 red buttons with some embroidery floss. And that's it!
I love how something as simple as felt and some buttons can make such a pretty and unique Christmas decoration! If I have time I want to make some more of these using other Christmas icons.
Well I'm off to work on my quilt! We'll talk soon.
Linking up over here!
