JOY / Home Decor Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to the CHRISTMAS HOME DECOR BLOG HOP!!

If you arrived here from Pam's blog Love Bug Creations than you are in the right place, if you just stopped by my blog you'll want to start at the beginning at Shannon's blog My Scrappy Creations so you don't miss out on any of the wonderful creations!!!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas and we'd like to inspire you to get your home decorated for the holidays!!!

For my project I was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest.

It's from the blog Craft Goodies.

For my version I purchased the letters at JoAnn's, painted them red and used Mod Podge to attach patterned paper by Graphic 45 to the fronts of the J and the Y.

I also purchased a three jingle bell ornament from JoAnn's which I took apart to use the largest of the jingle bells for my project. It was brown and I painted it the same color red as the letters and also painted the jingle bell with Mod Podge as a sealer.

I painted a wooden wheel piece red and glued the jingle bell to it so that the jingle bell would stay upright and in place.

I also glued some buttons, tied with twine, to the J and Y. The pine cones, greenery and berries came with the jingle bell ornament, so I reattached them after the paint had dried.

I will have some blog candy, but I forgot to take a pic.

If you are a follower of my blog and leave a comment on this post, you will be entered in the drawing for the blog candy.

You are now off to see what Lisa has created at Lisa's Creative Niche!

Here is the complete line up in case you get lost:
