Welcome Winter Blog Hop

Sorry all you end-timers but still here and kickin'!  I just have this to say...

Okay all kidding aside, thanks for stopping by to my third blog hop ( I am on an roll!!!!).  This hop is being hosted by Ashley, The Blog Hop Princessand you can head of there to start at the beginning.
You should have came via Tabetha (such a pretty name!)

My project for this hop was inspired by this picture on Pinterest (which I am totally addicted to by the way).
My best friend found it and said she would loved to have something like this to hang up.  I knew I could do it for her but with a couple of changes.  She lives 5 hrs away so I will have to mail it and do you know how heavy those bells are?!?!  And her living rooms is in blues so I decided to change up the colors.

I found these plain white letters at JoAnn Fabrics.
With a little acrylic blue paint, Crystal Stickles and glittered plastic snowflakes here is what I made for her...
I went with the blue and white winter theme, I figured she can hang it up longer too.

I added some swirls with the stickles and if you look closely, you can see that I put her last name in the design.

I chose to used premade plastic glitter ornaments instead of paper because they would hold up better in the mail and when she stores it after the season.
I am happy to say, she loved it!

I have a little Prize for the hop, but it is a surprise!
