As we were putting up our Christmas tree, and I started sprinkling decorations around the house, I realized we don't have any holiday wall hangings. But there's one little (dark, very poorly lit - for the life of me I couldn't get the jewel tones to photograph well for the shot above) corner cabinet where I usually put our advent calendar, and it was just begging for a splash of color. So what did I [the woman with a half a dozen Christmas gift and swap projects that need to be finished asap] do? Yep. I made one ; )
I even whipped up this quick free pattern for you!
I created mine on a small 12" x 18" snowy background, which means the templates are the perfect size to fit on placemats or throw pillows, or to triple the trees for a table runner... the design is super simple and would work well for any of those! Plus, it's an easy enough project to do with your kids - mine enjoyed helping me pick out some holiday brights from my stash. (And when Santa brings their new sewing machine, I have just the project they can turn into grandparent gifts next December!)
