Time for Christmas Decorations!

Happy beginning of the holiday season and thank you so much for all your wonderful entries so far in our month-long "Beary Best" challenge. I am so impressed by all your great projects, keep them coming!

My project this week is a couple of quick and easy Christmas decorations featuring the awesome Merry Christmas line from Echo Park. I completely adore the color combination in these papers-- traditional red and green but dark paired with BROWN (I love BROWN!) and just a tiny bit of grey. So pretty! I am in a red/green/brown mode this week as I prepare for my Christmas craft shows and I have been painting and embellishing everything in these colors, including both of these:

First is a set of stars, about 4 x 4 inches painted, sanded, varnished and then a little bit of paper added before my vinyl words.

Next is a set of JOY letters, about 12 inches tall, also painted, sanded and varnished then decorated. I added my Echo Park paper to the J by tracing and cutting it out then putting it on with a heavy layer of glue stick (one layer on the paper, one layer on the wood). I glittered up my O using tacky glue and some glitter-- imaging this O done with the German Glass Glitter from The Beary Scrap store; I didn't have any brown but the vibrant hues of the Glass Glitter would be absolutely gorgeous on a wood letter like this!

I hope I passed a little of my holiday mood along to you and I can't wait to see what you create this month!
