Christmas Cane Elf Ladder Poinsettia Tree Handmade by LilacsNDreams.
Welcome to Everyone! Glad you could drop by.
I Love Christmas, and really enjoy repurposing, restyling, upcycling, and handmade items with christmas decor too. I have often thought about making up as many things as I could for christmas decor, and offer it for sale all year long. After doing some minor research it can, and is being done too. Something to think about, and consider. If I would keep enough inventory of christmas supplies on hand I could spend the summer painting, gluing, and making a lot of things to offer. You know Christmas in July, and for the rest of the year. I really like the thoughts for this. We’ll see what I do.
OK, my 2 projects I have been working with are not fully done. I have a good start, but need to complete them with some other items added into the decor. Bows, Christmas items like pinecones, finishing ribbon around the trunk, adding a base, and just some different things to dress them more.
These 3 pictures show 1 of my projects I’m working on. For this I have used 3 plastic candy canes to make this ladder. The 3rd candy I had cut to make 3 steps for the ladder. I am finally using a glue gun to help with a more quicker way of connecting things. Once things have bonded I then will add a little E6000 in different places to achieve a more sufficient bonding that will hold. As you can see I’ve added 2 little elves to this sitting on the ladder steps. I intend to add a little more christmas embellishments before I consider this completed. Fun!
These 2 pictures show my Christmas Poinsettia Tree I am making. I have added red, and white poinsettias to the top of a plunger making the tree top. This will sit, and bond over night. Tomorrow I will then arrange the poinsettias more making a fuller tree top. I then want to add some small glittered pine cones into the tree top. I’m thinking of using some green glittered ribbon for the tree trunk base, or silver glitter ribbon, or plain green ribbon. I’ll play with it a bit, and decide then. I have a red cardinal that will be added with this tree along with a silver christmas tree bucket for the base. The bucket will be filled with support for the the plunger to stand, and then I’ll cover that with some white snow filler. Of course I will be adding some christmas embellishments around the base, and so on. I will make sure to share with you pictures of the completed projects.
This week is Christmas! Is everyone ready for this? Any special plans, gatherings, family, places to go, plans of how you will spend the day, and so on? I know this pandemic has put a curve to a lot of things. For us we have our son, and our daughter with her family joining us. Everyone’s health is great, and this is family time we do every year. This is 1 close to normal thing we will be doing together as a family.
I want to thank you all for visiting with LilacsNDreams! I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, and a wonderful New Year too! Take care, be safe, and see you again soon. Toodles . . .
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!!!
