Christmas Projects

This first project that I've completed recently is one of my favorites. I found the little tinpail at a GS for 25 cents. Why didn't I take a picture of it first? I'm sure

you've seen one similar, generic Christmas popcorn tin. I spray painted it black

and then brushed on a brick red. The label is homemade - old font, scrapbook paper,

and walnut ink. Santa from Tennessee Ridge Primitives, I just love her patterns. I did not add the crow to this as I'm cutting back on the crows!

Moonchild's Primitives for this shelf sitter Santa. He was very easy and I loved the edging on his hood - it was cheesecloth.

The stocking pattern was one that Char gave away last year as a freebie. I'd made the stocking and left it in my craft area. Thought I better finish it up for this Christmas!

I spray painted the greenery with a little white/cream spray paint to give it a little texture and color variation.

Now I have to get busy with the trees. Will post photos as I finish them up. I hope you are having a good weekend. ~Ann
