I'm featuring ''Twas the Night Before Christmas today. I have a LOT of pics so bear with me! :) This is my first time making some home decor hanging but I felt that this was the perfect set to make some Christmas decorations with. So here it is hanging on my wall.
On each image piece, I set an eyelet on the top and the bottom (this gives your cardstock more strength and I'd recommend it). Then I slowly strung the pieces onto the ribbon. I tied a knot at the bottom and tied a bow on the top.
You can always click on a specific photo for a larger view. I know that you can't see much detail when I show three or four pieces at once so I do have individual shots for your viewing pleasure as well. I took these shots before I hung it up so there may be slight differences as I have a tendency to change my mind at the last minute.
how-to. There's a fun little orange candle gem for the flame.
Ok that wraps up my photo-palooza of a post. Hope you enjoyed and hope you were inspired a bit!
