It’s Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas…

I know what you’re thinking… Christmas, really? 

Well, it’s beginning to look like Christmas in the stores!  My sister and I went out on the town today looking for early Christmas shopping deals!  We found some… and then some. :)

We were also inspired by all the scrumptious Christmas decorations.  We found a lovely hurricane glass candle holder surrounded by an evergreen and gold wreath.  Something like this:

We were smitten! ;)

Knowing we could replicate and far surpass the design they were peddling for $40, our next stop was Michael’s craft’s store for supplies.  We got three sprigs of evergreen, two brown and gold poinsettias, and one clearance fall hydrangea.  Plus, a crackled glass hurricane with gold rim, and a gold beaded candle, all on sale!  The total came to a mere $25. 

So, after deconstructing all the sprigs and retwining/hot gluing them in a circle, this is the finished product:


Ain’t it lovely? Sigh…


Who thinks this is sooo lovely you could definitely display it for Thanksgiving as well as Christmas? 

Oh I do!  Me, me!
