So, I've been working for a while now on several different little projects for the Christmas holidays. It is most definitely my favorite time of year. So, here are just a few of the projects I've been working on recently. There is much, much more to come!
First up are a few of the ribbon trees that I've made so far. There are more, but this is a nice glimpse. I'm really proud of how they turned out. I just dreamed them up one day on a whim. I used the cones you find in the floral department of any craft store and then wrapped them, making pleats and pinning along the way, with various colors of satin ribbon. Then I adorned the tops and bottoms with paper flowers and buttons.
This is a little paper mache deer that I painted with a light pink acrylic paint and then covered with a pink flocking powder. The texture is really beautiful in person but sort of difficult to photograph. I then adorned it with buttons and the most adorable aqua velvet ric rac.
And lastly.. for now anyhow...
Some sweet little ric rac flowers. I had a lot of fun making these. I used the very simple tutorial located HERE at Knick Knacks & Ric Rac, a really fun blog.
I have several new ric racs that I purchased recently.. so, there is most definetly more to come!
