Quick Idea

These are some of the beeswax items, I have been making. I love these jingle bells. They look great in a bowl with some greenery and red berries

Next the Santa's are always a favorite with everyone.

These little beeswax holders, hold a battery operated candle. I like to put these in my doll's hands.

I didn't get a lot of time to finish my pattern today. Almost ready. Hubby wanted to go to Jacksonville, so spent the day with him. So hopefully will have it up tomorrow.
Here are some pics of some of the books I did a few years ago.

I purchased some old books from Goodwill, took off the jacket cover and painted them black. Sanded the edges down to look worn. I then, took a Santa image and printed on heavy weight paper on my computer. I cut to fit front of book. I used a lit match to scorch the sides of the cover label. Then, I took spray adhesive and lightly sprayed front of book and sprinkled glass glitter on book. Let dry, then add sprig of greenery and red berries.




I have some Santa images, that I found on the internet, as far as I know they are free, if anyone knows differently please let me know. Just right click and save.
