reindeer to the rescue!


we hopped on over to get our Christmas tree a wee bit too late last night. the darn place was about to close! i had just had this whole pep talk with charlie about how exciting and big of a moment bringing home your very first tree is and well, it was over before it started! ba humbug! so tonight is the night we will meet our tree. like for real. but on that short drive back home i was feeling the blues because waiting 24 mooore hours, I mean ugh! Patience is really a virtue. so i pushed all our Christmas ornaments and decor to the side and said fine. if there cant be a tree. then there will be reindeer. and it will sparkle.  Pinterest teaches me these things. so one canvas, mod podge, glitter and a reindeer silhouette later and boom! puuuuuuuure happiness!

Girl...we are so alike. Because I was just about to make this same thing THIS WEEKEND! Glad it was possible Where did you get the silhouette?

I've been eyeing these on Pinterest...I need to make one, too!

I started to decorate our tree last night (we bought it Saturday), but we ran out of lights! I was so determined, I drove to my parents house to get their extra lights, and they don't even fit ours! I, like you, was so frustrated and didn't do any more decorating. haha! I should have done what you did and just got some glitter out--seeing as I'm obsessed with it!

I know how you feel - We bought our tree Monday and that's literally all we've done. Epic Fail. But I love this Glittery Raindeer! :)

I too have coveted this reindeer from Pinterest. Might have to join you and the rest of these crafty glitter girls and make my own this weekend. Was it difficult to make?
