Last minute table decoration.

Hi everyone,

It feels like ages since i have done a tutorial and a Blog post! I really need to get myself a routune going. When you move home it just upsets everything. Well it sure has for me. Over Christmas i plan to record some tutorials for the new year and get myself back to normal.

I hope you are all well and looking forward to Christmas. I have to say i think i am looking forward to a bit of a rest and some tome out from working and decorating! I feel like i have had a paintbrush in my hand 24/7!

Anyway, i needed a last minute table decoration as i couldn’t find the one i normally use ( probably got lost in the move). I didn’t want the mess of using dry foam so i just glued my Christmas bits straight down onto the card base. I didn’t glue my candle in as you turn it on and off from the bottom.

I have to say that i am thrilled with the end result. It turned out way better than i thought it would. It cost me nothing to make as i already had the supplies including the battery operated candle. It just goes to show that you can make stunning Christmas decorations for very little.

I I used Chloes pointestrtia stamp and dies to make my Flowers. The frame is made from Gold texture roll from Sizzix. The other decorations are what i purchased from The works a while ago.

I hope you like it and i hope you have something lying around to make something similar. Below you can find the measurements and also the link to my Youtube Video.

  4. Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy new year I hope you are safe and well. In our part of New South Wales we have avoided the corona virus, however, we have loads of space as we are a rural community. Looking forward to more inspiration Barbara

  5. How about tying a wide ribbon around the candle and attaching the decorations to the ribbon.
    Glad to see you back and into the swing of life!
