Tonight is the kick-off of the Christmas Blogger Block Party sponsored by the lovely ladies
who write At The Picket Fence. Thank you Heather and Vanessa for all your hard work
putting this party together.
Each day a different blogger will host a themed linky party and there will be lots of giveaways.
The fun starts now at Debbiedoo's Blogging & Blabbing with the theme Holiday Copycat.
I have been dying to show you my Christmas decorations but I wanted to wait and share them
at the Blogger Block Party. Tonight you only get a sneak peek of what I have been up too. You'll
have to check back each day of the party as I reveal more.
I saw the picture of this shell tree and I instantly knew this would be my Copycat project.
Side by side
The original tree from BHG used green moss as a base. I wanted to keep mine lighter so I
sprayed the Styrofoam cone with adhesive, and rolled lightly in faux snow. The green limpets
were applied with hot glue, starting with the larger shells on the bottom and working up.
This project used a lot more shells than I thought it would. I had ordered
seventy limpets on-line and I had to go back and order thirty more to complete it. I do love
the way the shell tree turned out, and it is perfect with the rest of the Christmas
decorations in our dining room.
Please visit Debbiedoo's Blogging & Blabbing to see all the copycat decor.
I will be hosting HOLIDAY DINING beginning the evening of 12/7 and there will be a great GIVEAWAY starting then. Get those tablescapes, dining room vignettes and recipes ready to share at the party. Any type of Christmas decorating in the dining room is welcome. *The Holiday Dining linky party will be held in lieu of the Open House party for that week. I hope to see you there and please check out below the other parties starting this week.
