Projects I am working on

Well I have been working on a few projects for Christmas and thought I would share them. I finally found a couple little bottle brush trees at a drug store and bleached them. I have heard that you can do that, but I didn't want to do it to one of my old ones.

 I bought the two of these for $1.40.  I put water in the sink and poured in bleach, quite a bit and let them sit. When I came back they were perfect. It took about a half an hour and then I rinsed them good and put them in the window to dry. A lot of the fake snow fell off but they look a lot older now too.

I am working on another wreath and rolling my little heart out. I have an old hymnal that I am using with the sheet music and putting it all together.  I made about 8 of these last year.

My daughter said she left her's here and I can't find it so I am making her another one. I want it to be special so I am changing the center and will post it later to show you the difference in this one and the ones that I made last year. They turn out so pretty and you can hang them all year long.

I had better get back to work so that I can finish some of what I have started.



  1. Great idea for the bottle brush trees. And the hymnal sheet wreaths are pretty!


  2. I'm going to try bleaching some bottle brush trees, thanks for the tip. I love the wreath--beautiful!
