Winter Wonderland by My Mind's Eye


I was a guest on the My Mind's Eye blog this week and I thought I would share the projects here too.  
Today I am showing you the ones I made with the Winter Wonderland Collection.
I love going out to garage sales and thrift shops looking for things that I will be able to alter.  I got both of these wooden items for next to nothing and as soon as I saw the Winter Wonderland Collection I knew that it would be perfect. 
Both of these went together very quickly and I love how the addition of the felt to the stocking looks and feels.
Both pieces were just basecoated pieces of wood.  The stocking had a folk art type of painting on it.  I cut out the pieces to fit, adhered some felt and the sentiment, stitched then adhered them to the wooden piece.  Finally I adhered the snowflake and then wrapped and tied the twine and bells.







Then I created this card.  The ribbon is some V Striped Twill from May Arts.
