But I digress. All that envy is not good for me. So, last night as I laid in bed..then on the couch..then in bed again, wishing I hadn't had that triple-shot mocha in the afternoon, I had an idea! Yes, a lightbulb moment!!! So today, as the children were coloring and napping and playing legos, I got out my glue gun and a bunch of un-bleached coffee filters from the kitchen cabinet. I grabbed a couple of fun edging scissors and went to town folding and cutting and glueing and this is what I came up with. Not very sparkly, or fancy, or intricate but still...they are color coordinated! I have created a tiny little corner of Christmas in my home with the simple supplies I had hanging around. I hope you like them!!!
|Just some coffee filters! Some folding, cutting and hot glueing and they become mini wreaths!|
|I added some buttons and a little hanging ribbon and called it good. :) SIMPLE.|
|I pulled the red ribbons out of those ceramic ornaments and added some twine. I just can't do the red everywhere. Sorry Santa...I kinda like green...|
|I suppose I could really go for it and add a bunch more of the coffee filters for fullness. |
Nah, I'm happy with these just the way they are.
|The big white buttons kinda remind me of sea shells. Buttons are cool.|
|I pulled this green fabric out of a box of remnants my mom had in her closet ~ thanks for sharing mom!!!|
