"O come let us adore HIM
This hymn is one of my favorite Christmas hymns, so when I saw it used
on one of the many different wooden or pallet signs,
my head began to swirl!
Making a wooden or pallet sign would be time consuming, so my trusty
chalkboard became the most obvious option.
I searched fonts, and came up with a doable free hand design.
Next came the candles...
Sheet music is stashed all over at my house, so I grabbed some
and every ivory candle I could find.
With a little mod podge, epsom salts and glitter,...I made some wintery glittering candles for the mantle. I gathered candlesticks, and made some makeshift ones using items from the pantry.
The tutorial for all these projects is in my next post,
and you can check it out by clicking here.
I like to incorporate a cross in my Christmas decorating as well,
to remind us that there is more to this story!
Here, I placed a gold cross in a glass apothecary jar,
resting in some fake snow (soap flakes).
The garland is "iced" with vase filler...tutorial coming in the next post!
I added a mirror garland for added sparkle and reflection.
Silvery pine cones are scattered amongst the greenery,
and assorted ornaments are dangling from the branches.
The Christmas mantle is all aglow,...
But what's missing? Did you notice?...
the stocking hangers are empty,... but not for long!
