Welcome to the 3rd and final day of the annual holiday Visions of Sugarplums Blog Hop hosted by Lori Hairston!  I’m thrilled that Lori invited me to share some projects again this year and hope my creations will help spark your creativity this holiday season!  CLICK on the photos to see larger views!


For today’s project share, I made a garland to decorate a mantle or hang on the tree!


I strung this garland along a pine bough lit with white jingle bell ornaments for you to see how you use the project to decorate your home or office …


… but this one is being mailed to my son that lives up in Philly.  He will be putting up his very first Christmas tree in his apartment this year, so he is in need of some decorations!


I think he’ll like this handmade from the heart decoration … what do you think???


It was really fun to make … and even more fun to give away!


Here are the goodies I used from the Paper Sweeties boutique to make this little treasure:

And now, onto the rest of today’s BLOG HOP and PRIZE FUN!
