It’s going to be about 80 degrees today, so the only snowflakes we’re going to see on Christmas will be the ones hanging from my dining room chandelier. Don’t feel sorry for me – this weather is why I live here!
I used my fabulous Silhouette SD to cut the snowflakes from white cardstock. The snowflake design comes preloaded on the machine, and all I had to do was resize the design so I could cut a few different sizes. On half of the snowflakes, I sprayed adhesive and dipped them into my favorite Martha Stewart fine glitter. I used red ribbon of varying lengths to hang them from my light fixture.
They are so shimmery and delicious (and would probably drop glitter in our food, so it’s a good thing we don’t ever eat in the dining room)!
I showed you how to make my snow drift candle holders last week. I added the leftover “snow” to two glass vases, added three tealights in each, and wrapped a red ribbon around the vase. I embellished the ribbon with more snowflakes and Scotch tape – for when you are truly too lazy to reach for the glue gun!
I added some pine cones and placed it all on a silver and white table runner…that is too short for my table. I decided to just be Zen about that and let it go.
This was so easy to put together, and I won’t feel like it will have to come down as soon as Christmas has come and gone.
Look, ‘Ma! There’s snow in Texas!
