12 Days of Christmas Bloghop- day 11

Hello awesome people- back again!  This has been such an amazing hop for me.  :)  I'm so honored that Lisa asked me if I wanted to do it again from last year.

Day 11- one more day and we're done, y'all.  I'm kind of sad about that. :(  That's ok- there's always next year!

Here's what I made for y'all today:  a poinsettia frame!

I made the poinsettias from THIS BLOG with 1 exception- I pinched the ends.  once you make them, you'll see what I mean.

Here's what you'll need:
various paper
1 picture frame
tacky glue
1 pine cone
winter woodland (to cut out holly leaves)
martha stewart pine branch punch.

make the poinsettias from the tutorial in the blog posted above.
Cut out SEVERAL holly leaves -I think I did mine at 2".
punch quite a few branches from the MSPB punch.

Happy gluing around the frame!

Take the pinecone and tear off "petals" from the back giving you a flatter surface to glue onto the frame with.  Glue him on, let everything dry overnight.

I think this frame is unfinished.  I think I'm going to add some yellow buttons to the centers of the poinsettias.

So, here's the lineup, and I'm so glad you've made it this far- I'll see you tomorrow for the final day!
