Christmas Fun!

Happy Friday!
We made it to another weekend, only thing is...it's getting closer and closer to Christmas! Eeek! Are you ready? I'm "almost" ready! lol!

Today I wanted to show you what I've been doing lately.  This is a platter form Ikea that a friend at work bought and asked me to doll up for her. I used my Cricut machine and cut out Merry Christmas and some holly leaves in vinyl and then added some vintage red buttons for the berries!
The platter is a beautiful green with darker green flecks in it, it makes a lovely decoration for any holiday vignette!  I will say, that you definitely need a very large and sturdy plate holder for something this large. My smaller ones would not hold this for daily use!
I'm going to keep my eyes open for platter bargains throughout the year, cuz I really want one of these for myself! So beautiful!
If you haven't tried making these yet, you really should! It's quite easy once you get the hang of handling the vinyl and getting the placement just right!
One more fun thing I've done lately is to do up some Santa nails!  I saw the idea on Pinterest HERE and knew I wanted to try my own, so out to the store to buy all the stuff and tah-dah! I did my very own Santa nails!  Whatcha think? Cute huh?  I got lots of compliments too.....heehee!

Thanks for stopping by today. Please come again really soon, but until then...have a lovely day!  HUGS! :) I'm Linking To:
