Unexpected presents

Yesterday, I arrived home to find some unexpected gifts from my sister, sitting on my front steps. Actually one is a present and one is a loaner. The jingle bell wreath was the present and I just love it! It is made from large jingle bells stung onto wire and finished with metallic holly and a metallic bow. I haven't decided where to hang it but I will definitely display it in a prominent place.

I think this would be an easy project for anyone. These are large jingle bells but any size would work. It makes a nice jingly sound so I am thinking about putting it on a door somewhere. I really love it and appreciate the gift!

Then she brought me over this beautiful vase as a loaner. It is beautifully hand-painted and would be easy to make. Just use glass paint and you can turn a simple vase into a keepsake. Great for DIY folks -- and it would make a beautiful gift.

She also brought me some holly with beautiful berries, and other cuttings for swags, wreaths and of course for the beautiful vase she loaned me. Thanks sis!

  1. Easy to make IF you had any artistic talents! (And I know you do!) This is great!
