Hoppy Holidays !

Come on in, Welcome to My Craft World !

Hope you have been enjoying Create It- Green's first Holiday Blog Hop.

Through out the day you will find Eco -friendly projects and tutorials, that we hope will inspire you to Create It- Green.

My first contribution to today's Holiday Blog Hop.

A Christmas Package Decoration.


Reusing Styrofoam that came in a delivery box to our home is the base for this decoration.

Cut down to size using an electric carving knife, made easy work of this project.
Spanish Moss adhered to the Styrofoam was used for the wrapping.

Ribbon salvaged from a past Christmas gift and berries cut from a bouquet of plastic flowers, that was destined for my Mother's trash bin to top it off.

They can be used as a decoration for your tree, or grouped together in a basket for a pretty Holiday display for the home.

Another option for this cute Eco - friendly project, may be viewed, on your next hop back here at 10:00 pm EST this evening.

I will have another project and a tutorial to share with you all.

Hope you are still awake by then...LOL!

I will also have an RAK to offer one of you lovely folks, as an appreciation for taking the time to stop by and check out all the wonderful crafters and creations you will find along today's Holiday Blog Hop.

Okay, soooo...on to the next stop of Create It- Greens first Holiday Blog Hop.
