Christmas is around the corner! Are you ready? I am not and I have a feeling I won't be as on top of it as I usually am. I am still trying to keep it simple but when you have a blog you want to keep things fresh too and have projects to show.
Last Christmas I got some great Chocolate covered pretzels from Crate and Barrel. The box was a beautiful laser cut bunch of snowflakes. I loved the box so much I kept it.
Yes, once again I prove I can be a junk collector or in this case trash!
But look at it.... wouldn't you? Ok don't answer that.
I loved the pretzels....this was a gift that kept on giving. I could reuse it over and over.
I had some leftover burlap and I made a pillowslip. Filled it with a feather insert but it was very plain. It needed a design.
Since I decided on a simple Christmas palette I thought this worked well.
I got some white paint and stenciled the pattern on the pillow and used some letter stencils to write some words.
I love it on the chair near the tree. It is great to find something you can use to create with. I am keeping the pretzel box top. You never know what else will come up in my head. I always said I think outside the box or in this case WITH the box!
Ready for some hot cocoa and....pretzels!
