MERRY Christmas Banner

Christmas is just days away and I wanted to share my last
handmade holiday decorations.....

My "MERRY" Christmas Banner was super easy to make!!
The base of my banner consists of:
a bit of CCB Ticking
7gypsies Vintage Pennant ~ Holiday Table
and a length of vintage trim

I then created a layers of
Hunter Green Burlap

I added Avocado ~ Small Clothespins and loved 'em!

The ends of the banner were adorned with berry picks,
local pinecones and pieces of garland
topped with a burgundy burlap bow.

I case you missed my Christmas Stocking.....
you can pop over and check it out HERE!

a Very MERRRRY Christmas
and a WONDERFUL Holiday season!

MERRY Christmas to YOU!!

Hello my friends.....I don't know about you but
I've been on a roll pumping out Christmas Decorations.
You see all of my decorations from "christmas past" are
packed away in my storage unit,
and I can't get to them.... (POOR PLANNING on my behalf!)
....and I just can't make it through this season with our ANYTHING!
So here is one of them..........
I have been working from CCB Farmhouse Christmas Mix and Match pad
.... because IT'S ALL THERE!
printed canvas
 various burlaps
 several printed papers
 kraft paper
 canvas and flute
what is there not to LOVE ABOUT THIS??
I did add my current favorite CCB paper Red & Kraft Ribbon Stripe
I tried to capture the Tattered Angels ~ Glimmer Glam ~ Chandelier
.....it didn't work, but it sure is pretty in real life!


I painted Santa's beard, hat and the bottom of his britches
with the Chandelier Glimmer Glam
Can I say.......it just shimmer in the Christmas lights.
If you look closely you can vaguely
see the snowflakes I stenciled onto the CCB Large Stocking

I created a video to share with you showing how I created the flower cluster....
