I decided to make my daughters teachers gift this year and the bus drivers too.
I bought this wooden tray at the thrift shop for $1 and I had my daughter paint it. I added the scrapbook paper to it.
At first when I was trying to figure out how to do it I was going to add that red and white paper on the bottom with it but decided against it.
I had some lace I bought at a yard sale so I used it on the bottom. I love the picture of the angel child.
She's so sweet.
Almost the finished product. I wound up switching around the pine cones so I could put the tea light there. I didn't glue it down because I wanted it to be easily replaced. I also added the little silver balls but I think they would have been better off without them.
This picture is not to well of it but it showed it with the tea light. On the back we did a picture with Mary and Joseph and her riding on the donkey with the star in the sky. We used burlap, lace and buttons. It was simple but that was what it called for. I couldn't get a picture of that because the camera went dead of course.
The candy cane one was made for the bus driver. Bought the wood piece at Michael's for $1. Jamie glued the red balls on the end.
The teacher was very touched by what we made her. She said she got teary and it meant so much to her. I'm glad she liked it. I wound up staying up all night doing it. I can't believe how time flies when crafting. It took me long to do this, it was like doing 4 of them because each one was done on both sides. I have to start doing some things in advance.
We had a wonderful time at my brother and sister in laws house yesterday for Christmas Eve. She hosts it every year and it's always a great time. Today we decided to stay home and relax. The kids have been busy with their things and hubby lit a fire and it's very cozy and relaxing. I haven't got out of my pajamas and I love it.
The lasagna is upstairs cooling and we'll be eating dinner shortly.
I'm so thankful to Jesus for everything He did for me, for all of us.
Happy Birthday Precious Jesus!
Hope you all had a blessed Christmas holiday with your loved ones!
