Countdown to Christmas-Week 3

I'm so excited about the project I have to share with you today.  I started it way back at the beginning of September and demoed a part of it at the Mini Convention I attended.  I told the girls to imagine it finished because I didn't have all my supplies in time to finish it for the Mini Convention.  Well, it's done and I absolutely love how it turned out!

So, here's a little history about how it came together.  I was shopping at my local craft store for some Halloween stuff when I came across some candles and this fab stand on clearance.  An idea immediately popped into my  head and I couldn't resist!

Each of the candles is wrapped with a piece of textured Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  Over top the cardstock is a piece of the Newsprint DSP which was distressed with the Distressing Essentials Kit.  Then I tied a piece of Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding around each of the candles.  You can see that I also tied three little jingle bells around the middle of the bow.  To finish it off, each of the candles was smooched with the Gold Glow Smooch Spray.

I also came across a package of little ornaments that totally went with my theme...and, you guessed it, I couldn't resist!!!!!  I finished off my project by filling in the spaces around the candles on the stand with the little ornaments.

And, there you have it!  Don't you just love this?  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!!!  Watch for another fab Christmas project next Thursday.

Have an inspired day!


  1. Love it! It looks absolutely amazing, now I think I have to see if I can't come up with a nice centre piece though Lisa, and it's all your fault.. LOL :)

  2. This is just stunning! I really love the jingle bells.
