Whew! We are in the final lap before Christmas! I was up late wrapping gifts for Cort's teachers, therapists, and bus drivers. I also got my gifts ready for my 5th grade team and my students. I am such a last minute procrastinator!
Before chaos ensued in this household of mine, I actually managed to make several ornaments that I will be sharing over the next few days.
I purchased two paper mache stars, but decided to go in two completely different directions with them.
The first one is for my downstairs tree, which is done in bright colors.
I spray painted it with a lime green paint. I brushed the entire star with glossy accents and sprinkled clear glass glitter over it. I cut a snowflake using a Spellbinder's die. I covered it with hot pink Stickles.
I added a satin ribbon, lime green jingle bells, and some fun "sprigs."
The second star was painted in a soft silver. And believe it or not....don't faint.....I did NOT use glitter! GASP!
I used the Festive Poinsettia set from JustRite. It was stamped on vellum and cut out. The pieces were layered and glued to the top of the star. I added a bit of seam binding, and another glittery "sprig."
I love how color choices can affect the overall mood of a project.
Cort has her first choir concert today. I can't attend, but her two grandma's will be there to cheer her on.
Darn work. ;)
Tomorrow I am hosting a Christmas get together.
So a bit of grocery shopping is in order....as well as a clean house.....and wrapped gifts......
Off I go!
Have a great weekend!
