Candlestick Holder

Candlestick Holder

I made a candlestick holder today. It was incredibly¬†easy. I put some artificial snow on, let it dry and tied the ribbbons. They are wired to the frame. The stamp was made with Stampin’ Up ink and reindeer stamp. The “Create Joy” stamp was one I owned before I was associated with Stampin’ Up. The beauty of this project is in its simplicity.



Country with a Bit of Glitzy 2

This is the same centerpiece shown in “Country with a Bit of Glitzy 1” yet the mood is very different due to the country look of the candle.

How to Embellish a Christmas Wreath

Metamorphosis of a Stock Wreath

Pictured above is a wreath I made today starting with the first application of artificial snow and ending with the finished product. Each individual photo above can be enlarged by clicking on it. Ribbons and inks used are from Stampin’Up. The wreath base came from JoAnn Etc and the snow is Aleene’s Glitter Snow. All other materials are from my personal collection.
