With that said, here are some projects I have made recently, either as gifts or Christmas decor (hope you find something you can use Tootsie Marie!!).
This started out as a styrofoam tree and some garland from Dollar Tree; ended up like this:
My SIL has blues/browns in her living room and dining room, so I made her some holiday decorations, again using styrofoam:
This time I used glass marbles and hot-glued them on (be sure to use low-temp glue gun or you will melt the styrofoam!). I made more of the styrofoam balls with different marbles and things, but forgot to take pictures!
I bought clear glass plates at Wal-mart for $1.50 each. Cut a circle of fabric about an inch bigger than the plate. Apply some Mod-Podge to the back of the plate and smooth on your fabric, getting rid of any wrinkles or air bubbles. Then trim the fabric around the rim of the plate and apply some Mod-Podge around the edges to seal it up well. Then add a couple layers of Mod-Podge over the whole thing (back of plate), allowing it to dry between layers. This can be hand-washed only.
I hope you enjoyed these... they were all easy to make and did not take a lot of time to complete.
Happy Holiday Crafting!
