12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop (Day Eleven)

Welcome back to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop (Day Eleven)! This hop is taking place  November 24th through December 5th. Each of us will be posting something Christmas related each and every day at 8:00am, Eastern time (so for my Pacific Time Zone peeps like me!... that's 5am... But don't worry, you can sleep in, and we'll all be here waiting for you, too!)... for 12 WHOLE DAYS! Let us inspire you to finish up that layout, make some special Christmas cards, or wrap that gift in a fun and festive way. If you've already started, you probably came from Barbara. She always has something great to share, doesn't she? Let's continue this 12-day crafting party... after today, there's only 1 more day to go!

Alrighty now and again...  I've said in Day One, I'm starting my portion of the hop with paper things. Things that are simple and easy to do. I've strayed quite a bit... going in all sorts of directions. But one thing has always been on point... I can always ADD paper to whatever I've shown you. Hahaha. Stretching it enough? Just thought I'd keep you on your toes, as I'm sure it was starting to read/sound like a spiel. As with Day TwoDay ThreeDay Four, Day Five, Day Six, Day Seven, Day Eight, Day Nine, and Day Ten... We are still with the Christmas theme meaning all things Christmas! The hop is entitled "12 Days of Christmas," is it not? and still again with simple [nor so much in the paper today] crafts.

I realized I hadn't done an angel in this hop... so here ya go!

Don't you ever have unused clay pots around? Whelp... here's something to do with them... the more "antiqued" or used they are... the better (in my opinion)! Simply attach a Styrofoam ball to the top (I used hot glue), then add some Spanish moss (again... hot glue...). Add a little decorated wire or pipe cleaner twisted into a halo form that's a circle, folks!
I painted and inked on a wooden heart... a face... and edged the face in gold. Then glued it on with (everybody now...) hot glue.
Cut four pieces of "paper" twist this one's not really paper... it's a plastic of some sorts but was still labeled "paper". Go figure... each a bit smaller than the other. Layer three, with the next to smaller on top, then wrap the super smallest around the middle of the three and secure it in the back with... hot glue.
(The "knot" is WAY over to the right. Can you see it?)
Take a bit of thick twine rope, or whatever you have that you want to make arms out of... and hot glue them to just under the Styrofoam ball (on the sides...). Curve them and glue together in the front to look like arms and hands I frayed it a bit at the ends to give more of an appearance of hands. Glue some lace, ribbon or anything else at the bottom edge of the pot Did I forget to tell you to turn the pot upside down first before doing all this? Whoops. But I figured you figured that out ahead of time, just by looking at the pics... and consider her done.
I happen to love her in the Christmas lights. Isn't she pretty?
Don't totally go! There is more in store for you, so hop along and please comment on each and everybody. 'Cause you know we all love a little love... And BE SURE to check out the "other" Lisa, as she's the one with all the blog candy and sponsor info! Have a great time, and don't forget to come back tomorrow!
