Then we hit the scrapbooking aisle and found an adorable set of pajamas (and a couple pillows) in the Jolee's stickers. I had been so pleased that I thought to take along my camera - until I went to take a picture of them and discovered the batteries were dead. :-(
Checked out the Christmas decor and I lucked out finding two 9" Christmas trees for $3.96 each.
When I was still working and doing three or four Christmas vignettes a year, I used to find the 6" versions of these at Canadian Tire but haven't seen them there for several years. (I know Michael's carries them but at about double the price they were at CT.)
I remove the garland by heating it with a hair dryer and replacing it with something smaller. Then I glue ornaments on and (sometimes) replace the tree topper. Like this...
|The angel topper is crocheted by MEE club member, Rosalle, who sells them at our annual Show and Sale. She also makes them in silver and gold. They're gorgeous!|
Joanne got several little (about 1 1/2" tall) 'snow' covered bottle brush round bushes (75 cents each) for the snowman project and some great bare birch trees about 4 to 5" tall ($3 each?) that will be wonderful next to a 1:48 house.
