Winter Wishes Clock


This vintage snowman has been needing a home and I decided to put him back in the Christmas woods.

 MME Noel paper was a perfect backdrop for this winter scene.  The bottle brush trees were dressed up with glitter and vintage mercury glass beads.  A layer of mica snow coats the bottom.
Some tinsel and wire snowflakes complete the interior.

I felt like the back needed to be dressed up on this one.  The plain black felt too harsh.


What have you been crafting?
