I am gearing up for A Special Christmas Soiree with today's post!
As well as showing off the ornament I made for my exchange partner in Eisy Morgan's Christmas Ornament Exchange!
I started by bending the handle of the spoon down so it will hang by itself. Next I arranged, rearranged, arranged and rearranged till I liked the 'pattern' of my flowers in the spoon. Hot glued them in place......
Next I beaded a piece of the wire with the seed beads....
Then I slid on the cross and wound the wire around the base of the spoon and that's it!
Easy as pie!
A few things...
I have a stash of odds and ends silverware from working at Dillard's. You know the display silverware? Well when they discontinue a pattern you can sell the display for cheap and thus my stash! I had the rest of my supplies as well....the flowers are from my first plum of a deal from Pick Your Plum!! So this makes the second project from them and I still have some left! I'm loving the combo of turquoise, red and white for Christmas and I had just enough! My exchange partner is Allison from Feeding My Temple. Not only is she a fellow sister in Christ but a fellow Okie as well!! How fun to get her in the exchange!! So I knew I wanted to make her ornament and make it special. Since her blog is about balancing 'feeding her body, mind, and spirit with the Word and amazing food' I wanted the ornament to reflect that.
Spoon + pretty flowers + cross = Feeding My Temple.
And how perfect that I had all supplies on hand!! Go me!! ☺
I sure hope she likes it!!
And speaking of Pick Your Plum....there's still time to enter the giveaway!!
