A couple of friends and I are newly responsible for the church Christmas decorations this year. There is some updating that needs to take place and always on a minimal budget. We decided to add some natural elements and therefore, the reason for painted pinecones. Some are dipped, which are my favorite. Others are brushed with foam brushes. I really like how they turned out.
Sweet Art Factory. I know there are a couple of shirt cutters that would work for this idea. I sent her a picture of this kit, so maybe she'll start carrying a sweater cutter.
Then on to Pottery Barn to buy a gift certificate for a wedding gift. All their pretty Christmas decorations are out. Believe it or not, I didn't leave with any!
I really love this big red knitted cable pillow cover, though. I think I already have red yarn to make something similar. I found three different free knitting patterns for cabled pillows here, here, and here. Too bad Christmas is so close, I'm not sure I can finish one before December. I can always start it though. I'm pretty good at starting things. . .
