‘What did you get for Christmas?’ ‘A house’ ‘Well merry Christmas to you indeed’ am I right?
It’s a little scattered here
How did we get so many chairs, all the furniture we own consists of chairs
luckily I planned ahead a little bit so I’ve got a few posts I can share with you
So lots of people are likely doing their secret this coming week and I thought I would show you what I did for my secret Santa.
My secret Santa wanted gift cards (boring) or ear rings (I can work with that)
Most secret Santa gifts are limited to around $10 to $20. You can’t get much for that anymore. And to me small presents are all about the presentation so along with some $8 earnings from H&M I got $2 worth of craft supplies to make a little ear ring holder/ornament.
You’ll need two laser cut frames like I used in one of my very first posts found here.
Some paint, lace and some ribbon or twine for hanging.
First I painted my frames using a stippling technique to give them some texture.
Then I just used hot glue to glue lace to the back side of one of the frames. I also layered some tulle in there simply because my lace had very large holes and the tulle would secure ear rings better.
Then I spot glued a small length of ribbon onto the back of the frame to serve as a hangar.
Finally I coated the back of both frames with wood glue and sandwiched the lace and ribbon in between the two by gluing the frames back to back and carefully lining them up.
I clamped the layers together with clothes pins while it dried
After about one hour I had a lovely way to gift ear rings and money left over in my Santa budget for other goodies.
