Well I am happy to introduce this years Christmas theme, Red and White. Since last years theme was not your usual Christmas colors, we thought this year it should be more traditional.
This was a fun theme because it opened up so many ideas. And we had plenty of red and white to choose from. Like wrapping white pillows with ribbon and vintage belt buckles. A sweet friend gave me a Clarice, so I had to use her.
Just to give you an idea of how we plan our themes. The girls and I pin ideas throughout the year, based on our theme. Then in the fall each of us picks at lest one idea we really want to do. Some years, such as the up-coming year, we will need to make a few things early in the year because we do not own much of the theme (yes I have next year picked out ;-) )
The back of the cabinet was a nice blank space, so we covered it with wrapping paper. The craft Auberne` picked was a garland made of fabric candies. We just cut rectangles out of fabric, fill with a ball of filling, glued the center/back and tied off each end. They were easy and fun to make. I picked making this giant star from ribbon as my craft. It took a while to figure out (a few extra holes in the wall!!) but I love it and it really help fill up the wall space! More to come.
