decorating for Christmas
It's that time of the year again, I'm sure it was only a few weeks ago that I put the Christmas stuff away!
I found these wee stocking in the box of decorations, I usually hang them on the tree, but this year I thought I would make a small garland alternating pinecones with the stockings.
Easy to do, I just screwed a screw in the top of each pinecone & tied on string. You could alternate with other decorations you already have, or empty spools of thread covered with Christmas fabric.
I guess you could paint the pinecones too, but I like the natural/rustic look of them just the way they are.
For no other reasons than I can & I thought it would be fun to hang my Christmas tree upside down!
Such fun finding my treasures, bits n' pieces handmade by friends, my children & myself. There is something special about Christmas quilts, is it because we have them out for a short time?
Has anyone else blogged about their Christmas decorating? Maybe you would like to take us for a tour of your home.
Wishing you all a peaceful lead up to Christmas, stress free, worry free & free laughs!
