LTCCB Challenge #41; Anything Goes

Time for another monthly challenge at Love To Craft Challenge Blog (LTCCB).  As always, the challenge theme is ANYTHING GOES.

Here's what I did this month:

How did I do it?
I bought the wooden ornament bases and floral picks from the Dollar Tree. I had to sand the edges because they were a little rough otherwise not a bad deal for a buck!

I watched a YouTube video on how to paint the buffalo check and used white, soft gray, granite gray and black. (Do a search...there are plenty out there!) Mine are a little distressed since I didn't wait for the paint to completely dry before placing the painters tape. But I do like the look!

I used my Cricut to cut Merry Christmas with vinyl which I downloaded from lovesvg.

Then I added the ribbon, greenery and jingle bells to the top of the ornaments to finish them off. This was actually a quick and easy project if you have the right tools. I made one for our door and two more that I'm gifting to both my DILs' families.

Here are the other two I made:

  1. I'm impressed with your dollar store item makeover, especially the hand painted plaid !!! I think it looks great "distressed", too. Your DIL's are going to love these. Happy Holidays, "teamie".


Thanks for visiting. I appreciate your comments. I love sharing my projects with you and hope to encourage you to create things on your own. Thanks again!
