I kept up with The 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style, just barely, so I didn't get many ornaments and decorative things made. I always try to make a few ornaments for our tree each year and I did manage to get two done.
The first one, as you can see, is a pair of ice skates cut with the TH die. I used white glitter paper from a pad of different colored glitter paper. It has become my favorite Christmas paper! I cut the runners from paper that had foil sticky back paper attached and the heel was cut with black paper. Both the runners and the heels were glued to the original die cuts. I used red and white baker's twine for the laces and the hanger and some greenery and gumdrops for the decorations. The second one is a star shape cut out of the gold glitter paper from the same pad. I used a tree, Santa and banner from a package of Christmas die cuts from Kaisercraft. I used some glitter on the Santa to give him some sparkle.
The only other thing I finished this year was a top hat! I love top hats and I had gotten a papier mache one last year and never did anything with it. This year I decided to get to it.
I painted it with black paint and used a red satin ribbon for the hat band. I used more glitter paper, this time in green, to cut holly from the Holiday Greens die. I used the new labels die from TH to cut the circle and the holiday words die and gold glitter paper for the word "joy". The cluster of berries was in my stash. It sat on a bench in our foyer along with a finial and some greens. Here are some close ups.
I really love it and it looks very festive sitting on the bench ready to go with a dashing young gentleman out on the town!
That's about it for this year. There a few things that weren't finished and I intend to finish them soon because if I put them aside it will be a long time before they surface again!
Thank you so much for visiting with me today and all year. I do so appreciate your visits and your comments. I hope you have a very Happy New Year and I hope that 2015 (can you believe that!) is a blessed and wonderful year for you.
