Good Morning! How was your Monday? Are you excited it is Tuesday? I sure am. It means I am just that much closer to Christmas and spending time with the grand-kiddos!! Gotta love it!!
I had so much fun this past weekend-getting ready for Christmas and setting up all of our decorations. While doing so, I remembered something I had seen in the Christmas Edition of BHG. There was an article in there about Miss Mustard Seed’s Christmas decor. Oh wow-I was so excited!! The creative juices were flowing and there was no stopping them!!
This is the picture I saw in the magazine. Isn’t she just lovely?? So lovely, that I decided to make a knockoff of Miss Mustard Seed’s ornament creation. Sounds simple enough, right??
I then realized I had already purchased a paper mache’ ornament for 50% off at HL. I already had interior white paint that I used on my $10 coffee table, and I had iridescent glitter in my craft cupboard. I was ready to go!!
I painted each side one at a time, so every side would dry thoroughly. After the whole ornament was dry I used Elmer’s glue to adhere the glitter. (I always use Elmer’s because it doesn’t yellow-I learned that the hard way) Using the glue, I followed the curves of the ornament. I sprinkled as much glitter as I could get to stick. Again waiting after each side was dry. So, it was a slow process. But in-between time I was decorating, so it was all good.
I think she came out pretty good-don’t you? She definitely has made herself at home here. She fits perfectly with all of our Christmas decor. Thanks for the inspiration Miss Mustard Seed!! You are SO talented!!
Who is your fave blogger, designer, or magazine to mimic, or company to knock-off?
Thanks for stopping by today and letting me share what I love to do!
Make it a terrific Tuesday!!
