Some Fun Projects and My Booth

This weekend has been super busy for me. I just felt like had to do things this weekend. Everything I saw I wanted to make. I went to a Christmas craft show this weekend at some one's house here in Sioux Falls. The house was so awesome. I wish I would of brought my camera.
I made this wreath for my house. I wanted something out of the box and unique. I started with a piece of garden fence. I had it cut down to just the scallop part. The sharp fence parts were bent over. It was formed into a circle like form. I had an old dust pan. I had my husband drill holes at the top, and then wired it to the form. I added faux moss, pines/greens, an artificial spray piece, a old picture of a boy and his skis, and a faux bird nest/bird. I also added the words Merry Christmas to the dust pan. I love how it turned out...really junky!
I made some altered snowmen out of old bottles this weekend too. I made a little family! I saw these at the craft show and fell in love with them.
I am also leaving you with some pictures of my booth. I hope you all have a good week. Lots of cleaning for me this week since I've been crafting all weekend. If you saw my kitchen you would die. Some day I might dare to show you what the house looks like most of the time! LOL
