OFF THE WALL WITH DÉCOR ELEMENTS HOLIDAY MIX
My first project features the Holiday Mix Real Red Décor Elements (#117675). When I first sat down to work with this vinyl wall art, my first instinct was to try to use the entire sheet in one project. But as things progressed, I quickly found several ways that I could create with just one sheet. Now, I will admit that I almost ran to OEX and ordered at least one more set of a different color, but having only the one set of red forced me to be a little more resourceful.
To create this fun and inexpensive wall art I made a visit to a local discount store and found this wall plaque for only $2. I'll let you in on a little secret...it has some Halloween artwork on the other side...so instead of painting it, I just flipped it over and decorated the back side. Now, if I were going to give this away as a gift, I would probably take the time to paint the front, but since this one is just for me, I have decided to cover it with felt so that it doesn't clank around when I hang it on the door.
I thought it looked a little odd for it to just say "snow" so I used my new "My Digital Studio" to create a small tag to complete the thought. I added some rhinestones and used the new Mistletoe Ribbon Originals (#116792) to create a hangar and there you have it!
MORE DÉCOR ELEMENTS
After I finished the last project I was wondering what I could do with all of those fabulous left-over images from Holiday Mix Décor Elements, so I decided to make some coasters. (These pictures turned out really bright red, but in real life they are a little more subdued that this.)
QUICK AND EASY TAGS WITH MY DIGITAL STUDIO
Here is just another quick and easy gift favor idea for your holiday gatherings. I purchased some inexpensive knit gloves, (you know the ones that are really small and look like they would fit a small child), and tied them together with some gorgeous Striped Grosgrain Ribbon in Basic Black (#115615). I added an expensive floral pick and attached a tag that I created in My Digital Studio. How fun would this be to give to each guest at your holiday parties. You could even stuff some candy sticks into the top of the gloves and put one on each place setting at your dinner table.
Now don't run off because I have one more fun treat idea for the kids.
