Last Christmas crafts of the year

Finished up a few more little Christmas things, and took them to Stars:

12.12.12 projects Stars 060This is a second version of the same vintage candle holder.  I just happened to find another one like I had, and decided to do a few PINK Christmas things; to see how they sell.

12.12.12 projects Stars 078If I had this one to do over, I’d have NOT put the pink snowflakes on the front!   I also tied some sheer ribbon around the neck.  (forgot to take another pic after that though!)

12.12.12 projects Stars 055A couple more of the tea stained fabric covered boxes; these two topped with feather birds with gold glitter crowns.

12.12.12 projects Stars 062Small square apothecary jar ‘snow globe’.

12.12.12 projects Stars 061Squirt a fair amount of glue on the inside bottom of the jar; position your trees then sprinkle in snow.

12.12.12 projects Stars 063

12.12.12 projects Stars 064Added a satin ribbon and little metal tag I had on hand.

12.12.12 projects Stars 100A smaller one in a cork topped spice jar and a couple on top on old salt shakers.

12.12.12 projects Stars 065Vintage candle holder and a brush tree spray painted gold.

12.12.12 projects Stars 066I just stuffed the candle hole with paper to get a flat surface to glue the tree into place on.

12.12.12 projects Stars 070Some nests with glittered eggs glued atop little gift boxes.

12.12.12 projects Stars 073Tree shaped jars with a tree and snow inside.

12.12.12 projects Stars 074

12.12.12 projects Stars 081More nests with glittered eggs.

12.12.12 projects Stars 080And some that I glittered white and added a red berry sprig to; all bagged up to sell.

12.12.12 projects Stars 099Some pretty new colors of the little birds with crowns.

All of those things and a lot more every day stuff just re-stocked at Stars.

Time to pack away the Christmas craft supplies and get started on Valentine stuff!!
