On top of the shelf I added some quilt batting as snow and a sparkle garland I got on sale at Joann’s for 60% off. The frame I bought at Goodwill last year and I painted it blue with a sponge layer of white on top.
The stockings I made using burlap and satin I bought from my local fabric store. I am still on the lookout for the perfect initials to go on each of out stockings. I am starting to think I just need to make my own.
I realized something was missing on the side and so went to my craft closet and took two leftover candles from our wedding 2.5 years ago. I cut some burlap and attached it around the candles with twine. On the large candle I added a cinnamon stick to add a little pizzazz.
I love how ours turned out. I used my Cameo to cut out NOEL in vinyl and after cutting the burlap triangles, I spray painted the letters onto each triangle. After a night sitting on the porch, I hot glued the it all together using twine. I bought some small eye hooks and screwed them into the bottom of the shelf to hang the bunting flag from.
I love how it turned out and am so excited to start decorating it for each new season and holiday.
