I added greenery, berries and pine cones. I made a gold bow and tied a gold cord to hang it. I have discovered that I need a more high powered glue gun. I was going through glue sticks like crazy. It is going to be very hard for me to get the greenery off next time. I may have used a whole package of glue sticks. Do you know how hard it is to get things to stick to metal?
We decided that we were going to put wreaths on our front windows, that is one of the reasons that I wanted something different on my front door. It would have been overkill to hang yet another wreath.
After we had hung all of the wreaths, I decided I needed to switch out the gold ribbon to the same ribbon that I used on the wreaths. Hanging on my front door, the french horn just looked washed out amidst all of the red bows.
As much as I liked the gold bow, I think the red looks better anyway.
I am happy with the outcome and how festive it looks. Now we just need a little snow (did I just say that?)
I want to take a moment while I am talking about craft projects to give an overdue shout out to these two lovely ladies, Carrie and Danni. I won a paint challenge with the wineglass that I made for my friend. I was in New York, already having the best week ever when I found out that I had won.
Carrie at http://myfavefinds.com/ hosted the contest and I will be drinking Starbucks for quite some time thanks to Danni at http://silohillfarm.blogspot.com/. I want to thank these ladies again. I was quite surprised and honored to have won. They both have great blogs that you should check out!
I will be working on making Christmas presents today. I really need to finish up. Stay tuned for more painted glass.
Have a great Tuesday!
