It's Starting To Feeling A Little Like Christmas...

Around here, way out west of Chicago it is starting to feel pretty cold. Not as cold as usual, but cold to me! In fact they keep saying that it's "a warmer than usual November" & "its a beautiful crisp day out". Really? Then why am I freezing & I need a coat? .. and why again do I live here?  Whatever..... As a result instead of working on my many projects that I'm in the middle of I have decided to ignore them & make some Christmas decorations! So on Saturday I sat down & got to work.

These are my two sheet music Christmas trees. Not too hard to make...I bought some cardboard cones from Michael's & covered them with some of my vintage sheet music...(which by the way was one of my best "scores" ever from a barn sale)! The stars are also made from sheet music, they're just covered with gold glitter. I also was covered with gold glitter......I swear no matter how careful I am it still gets everywhere!!!  I also made a few Christmas ornaments. They are made from pages of an old encyclopedia set that I have, some craft paper & yet again more glitter. By the time I was done with these two projects I looked like a disco ball! I have some more decorating ideas but these are just my start.....what do you guys think??


  1. Love the glitter added on.

  2. Love the trees with the music sheets. Hope I have time to try to make some. Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas. I am a new blogger and hope you will drop in to visit with me. Timeless Treasures. Audrey Z.

  3. I'm using a bunch of ephemera in my holiday decorations this year too!! I really like your tree and of course the use of paper cones on your ornaments!!

    I'd love for you to link up this post and any other Christmas-related projects to the 26-Day Christmas Craft Marathon Linky Party!!
