Hey everyone, I know it's hard to believe that Christmas will be here in less than 6 months! I am getting a head start this year with my home decor items! I bought this little wall hanging on clearance a while back and knew I'd have the perfect little decor piece for the holiday. I've pictured a few items used in my project. I ended up switching my mind and substituted the sequins for a couple of enamel dots.
The first thing I did was take apart the wall hanging then I added some paper to the wood piece and the tray. I am loving the new collection "Candy Cane Lane". A couple of weeks ago I showcased a wood ornament project from Tinsel and Company... I love the big wood ornaments, I am finding I am using them on everything lately!
I created an extra large "Lollie" for the base, then cut a solid green circle from card stock as my mat for the wood ornament. I love it!
I really wanted the word art paper to be the focal point at the top so I just layered a few die cuts and chipboard elements to it creating a grouping. What makes this works is that cut at the top with the black dots and the black text words down on the bottom give it it's own "frame".
I love groupings and lots of layers and I created it by adding pop dots to my ephemra die cut pieces, chipboard a few brads and a couple of little red enamel dots. This was a really quick and easy project!
Once I was done with all of my layers I tied the pieces back together and added some ribbon to hang my project from the top. I hope you are inspired to look at something plain and simple and create something wonderful!! ~Cheri my blog: www.cherinspirations.com
