holiday project #3 - inspired by Pinterest & a fabulous find, named Terrain
I came across this picture on Pinterest a few weeks ago.
I decided to follow the saying that "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery" and copy one of these, after all I have a shadow box, twinkle lights and lots of bottle brush trees... I did have to purchase some "snow" but being cheap I just picked up a bag of cotton balls for $1.59.
Here's my shadow box in a little corner of the dining room, still decked out for fall... So I cleared everything out to start fresh.
Opened up my bag of cotton balls... and started fluffing and pulling them a bit to be less ball like and more, well snow like.
I pinned my twinkle lights carefully to the back of my shadow box... it's padded... and meant for pinning.
Added trees and my "snow"... but on second thought, I think the snow is still a little too ball like and I'll need to do some more fluffing.
From afar... or at least 4 feet away.
I even broke out my newly purchased vintage tree topper, after all the colors were just right.
Now I'm off to take my pecan bars out of the oven for tomorrow... this recipe is the best and I don't usually like pecans!
Happy Thanksgiving to all,
