Quick and Easy Christmas Decorating: part one

I like nothing better than a quick easy project.

Thought you might enjoy taking a peak at a few I have scattered around my house.

My favorite of course involves a reindeer!

 A shape cut out of cardboard from a cereal box.
A little paint . . . 

apply glitter . . .

then attach to a white platter using tape!

This little guy looks so pretty don't you think?

The next project I used a cereal box again. 

But added feathers!

One small feather boa from the craft store wrapped around a cardboard circle.

After adding a bow and hanging from a pretty picture frame, she fit's right in with my decor.

Finally, artwork.

Two pretty Christmas cards placed in a frame adds a nice touch.

until tomorrow,
