Anyway, today I finished up some things I have been working on and started some new projects. They are all for Christmas and the Holiday Bazaar. It is so odd to be making things out of season. I am in full blown Christmas craft nirvana and then I walk into the living room and it is all orange and black with pumpkins. I usually like to craft with the holidays. But, in order to make to sell, you have to plan ahead.
I made six JellO/Bundt pan wreaths. I think they are quirky and fun. I have to figure out how to hang them up at eh Bazaar so people can see them. The ones that I bought already painted? Well, I just used them as they were. The blue one was this copper colored, but it had faded to this weird pale pink coppery color., so I sprayed it turquoise. I kind of love it now. *Eh gads, our front door needs a power washing......
These collages have been an ongoing project over the past few weeks. The just have random things in them, but I think each one ties together. I glittered the frames and then sealed them with a clear spray I found at Lowe's. The glitter stays put on the frames and doesn't make a mess anymore. The little green choir boys is pretty simple - just sheet music and an old greeting card image. The line from "Elf" is for us to keep. I LOVE the movie Elf. It makes me happy.
An ornament encrusted wreath. I have enough ornaments to make a dozen of these, but I am in low supply of wreath forms. I keep looking for them at the thrifts, but I haven't seen any. I could *gasp* go to a RETAIL STORE, but what fun is that? And that would affect my pricing too.
And, lastly this frame is covered in real glass German Glitter and then lightly sealed. I trimmed the tree so it would lie flat then added some vintage glass mini ornaments and the wee deer. The "Let it Snow" piece was an after Christmas sale find last year. I like to use all vintage, but sometimes, something NEW that looks vintage works well enough for people that just like the "look".
Ad for my feet in that last photo. Well, I just cannot believe I left my FEET in a photo and actually put it on here for you to see. I have such at THING about feet in photos. Don't even get me started about photos that are JUST FEET. Gack. So, please forgive my feet in that photo. I am just too tired and too lazy to crop them out tonight. They probably have paint and glitter on them anyway......
Did you make anything this weekend?
