I made it! I didn’t think I would, but I literally did! Whew! I’m pretty excited to be able to join the craft party today over at Centsational Girl for one of the Holiday Home linky parties. Please be sure and visit this link for more wonderful and inspiring holiday decor projects. I know you will not be disappointed because my blogging friends have all been very busy!
Busy is right! I have been very busy myself and almost gave up on this project. But after all the decorating was done and I had a little time to catch up on a few of your fabulous posts I was overcome with guilt. Was I really going to let those items I had bought to do this project just sit there? I was thinking maybe I will get it done later or maybe even not this year, it’s not really that important.
But with a deadline looming on the craft party and all my wonderful inspiring friends posting their beautiful projects I just couldn’t let all the fun pass me by. So I decided to get busy again. Do you remember those four willow wreaths I bought at the dollar store? No???… Well let me show you!
This is the way they looked when I purchased them for $1.00 each.
I decided they needed just a bit of Mocha glaze, not hard just tedious.
Especially when you have four of them that need glaze, front and back.
Sorry about the colorful carpet background but I got tired and moved down to the den to finish this project. Here you can see the beginnings of my tulle bow.
I added a few more additional pieces and I was almost done.
Then a few more pieces, like some Rosemary and a candy cane and it was finished.
Then I hung them from the curtain rods inside.
Here’s a close up of the bow. I used the tulle ribbon again that I purchased this year from Hobby Lobby. A few strips of fabric I have that mimics burlap, and another smaller striped red white and green ribbon.
On the top I added a candy cane that hangs in the middle from the tulle.
I just love the simplicity of this and of course the Rosemary smells divine. I decided to add that after seeing Vanessa’s beautiful Rosemary creations over at Southern in my Heart.
Finally, because I cannot photograph all four windows at once in this room you will just have to believe me when I say they are all done. Whew again! Here’s the three that I could photograph together. What do you think?
I really wanted a little something extra on these windows inside this year. I am just so thrilled to have gotten this project completed after all. I know it doesn’t look like much on camera but in person, they really make quite a pretty picture.
Thanks for joining me and a very special thanks to all of you who posted your beautiful crafty Christmas projects early and inspired me to finish it off! I really appreciate the nudge!
Have a great day!
