I created these treasures.
I used 2 - 4" stryofoam balls from $ Tree plus 2 bead strands
(I can't tell you the exact length..but 15ft sounds about right).
I also used several glue sticks :)
I started at the top and worked in sections until the entire ball was covered.
I snipped off the extra beads.
Grabbed some of our silver candle holders & this is what I have
I had an old frame - so I cut a piece of scrap paper to fit & added some snowflake ornaments (20/$1 at Dollar Tree).
Using a few of my glass containers (you know I love them),
I filled them with blue and silver ornaments (from years ago)
and inexpensive bows (leftover from our wreath)
|if you look closely, you'll see some candy too :)|
Here is the completed mantle...
simple blue ribbon and clothespins make a cute card holder/display.
|the 2 blue/silver cone trees are from Target (dirt cheap after Christmas several years ago)|
Happy Friday everyone!
Next week - last minute decorations and gifts (on the cheap, of course)
