That’s what I am affectionately renaming the “Winter Joy” line JUST for today’s post. As Christmas came and went too quickly this year... so is the new year approaching.... way too quickly. Do you have any fun plans to bring in 2011? How about some fun ideas for your New Year's celebrations?
When I was finishing up my Christmas projects a few weeks ago using Bo Bunny's FABULOUS Winter Joy line, I felt a twinge of disappointment at putting those papers away for the season. Then it hit me.... NEW YEAR'S JOY!!! The gorgeous greens and purples and blues of Winter Joy are PERFECT when paired with black and silver to decorate for New Year's!
All I picked up from our local party shop was the silver top hat to alter, some colorful beads to fill the vase with, a roll of black tulle and some shiny silver star garland which you can probably find on clearance right now during the after Christmas sales. Cool! The rest was created using Bo Bunny's Winter Joy line. If you have any questions about anything, feel free to ask and I will do my best to explain by posting in the comments.
Supplies for altered top hat: Winter Joy Frosty, Winter Joy Magic (green side), Winter Joy Combo letter stickers, Whoo-ligans Petals-Black Tulle, Whoo-ligans Wrap-Blue Tulle
