Santa Bottle Topper
Another bit of Christmas crafting. Now, this one I made back in... June! I'd had it pinned on my Christmas board for a while. It was one of those moments when I just had to make it then and there. Initially I had visions of making loads for my family for Christmas, but I'd had enough after one!
It's Santa's boots stuck out of a chimney pot. The boots are boot-shaped, but it's quite difficult to get a good angle to photograph them. The pattern I used is here.
I think it turned out ok, although I showed my Mum back in August and the conversation went a little like this:
Me: Oh yeah, look what I made!
Mum: Mickey Mouse!
Me: No, think Christmas... (giving the benefit of the doubt, as it was August after all)
Mum: Oh yes, a reindeer!
Sorry, I went a bit mad with the sparkle effect to make it all more festive! Shown here with my star jar covers (free pattern).
On the topic of Christmas, whilst wading through the mess in my craft room (nope, still not tidied it!) I came across some Christmassy ribbon I'd forgotten I had. I got very excited, pulled out a couple of fat quarters from a stripy pack, and am loving how it all looks together!
It seems very elfish to me. I can't decide what to make, though. I'm probably just going to keep looking at it and produce nothing! Any ideas or suggestions? I'm sure there must be a really cute Christmas something or somethings I could use this for!
