Of course along the way, I'll also post and share my own posts and creations. So be sure to stop by often.
For the 1st week...which was really last week, we were asked to share our favorite Christmas song and a creation that represents it. Hmmmm?
I have two songs that I consider my favorites. One is from my childhood, "I'm Gettin' Nuttin' for Christmas." Does anyone know this song? I wore this album out, when I was a kid! I'm still searching for the old Frosty the Snowman album/version. The ending here is not the same I grew up with but this is a funny video.
The other song is "This Christmas" by Donny Hathaway. Oh.....so love this song and look forward to hearing it on the radio...played randomly. However, this year they are playing the sad remakes. Uuuuuggggghhhhh! Nothing like Donny Hathaway...all imitators take a seat!
And now for my creation. I really didn't know what to create to go with the songs. However, I tried something new. Therefore, I figured...it would make, "This Christmas" a very special Christmas for me. I saw this cute little idea in one of my healthy living magazines. So I gave it a try. Well, it turned out ok. I will probably make another being sure to use my trimmer to cut the strips the right length and with (I tore the strips...LOL!)to make it a bit more even and I also need heavier wire so that I can actually make a circle! LOL!
You want to give it a try.
Here are the instructions:
Cut approximately ten 3/4 inch by 11 inch long strips of paper bag.
Crumple the strips to soften
Poke a hole 1/2 inch from top center of each strip with paper piercer.
Poke additional holes every inch down the center of each strip.
Thread strips with wire, folding back and forth on wire.
Twist ends of wire together to secure
Shape the wire to form a circle
Twist ruffles randomly around wreath
Tie bow onto wire and clip ends of ribbon or notch.
There you have it. EnJOY. Create and Share.
