Day 11 of the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop


Boy, have I learned some lessons during this blog hop. If I am fortunate enough to be in this hop next year I will start in January creating my projects!! Or at least in September! I have absolutely had a blast though. I sure hope all of you have gotten some inspiration from the past few days. I know I sure have!

Today's project came right off Pinterest! My favorite place!

For today's project I made a centerpiece for my table. I used redline tape to secure to the candles and then poured glitter on the tape. The candles were a mess so I used a paint brush to brush away the excess glitter. I then had some styrofoam balls that I slathered in glue (with my finger...that was the easiest way) and then rolled them in glitter. Last, I arranged them on the acrylic tray. I got that at WalMart over by the cake decorating stuff. As a final touch I also arranged these little gems I spotted on the end cap at WalMart. They were $2.97 but the perfect touch for the tray.

I think it might need something else...a cloth to put on the bottom? paint Merry Christmas on the edges of the tray? or paint a design? tell me what you think!

Now, I need to go clean my scrapbook room! It looks like a glitter bomb went off in there! Make sure you comment each day a surprise is headed your way tomorrow!
