Christmas in July

 Christmas is still months away, but it's always fun to see a little Christmas in July, right? Here's a small Christmas angel shrine I made. It measures around 4 3/4" by 4 1/2", and is made from a masonite shrine kit I got from Alpha Stamps. I added the cardboard doors to make room for a couple more angels (images from an Alpha Stamps collage sheet), and gave the shrine some sparkle with glitter accents, gold Dresden trim, and shiny foil wrapped packages. The feet of the shrine are made from gold bead caps, and the top arch is a rusty bottle cap I found in a parking lot.

Here's a closeup of the angel in the middle. See her sparkly glitter headband and the glitter ornaments on the tree?

 And, if you're one of those people who like to see what's going on in the back:

I have such a huge list of things I'm dying to make: Christmas ornaments, more circus tins, Halloween items...I need more hours in the day!


  1. I do admire those who can prepare for the distant holidays. I just made a couple of subtly Halloween things for an event that will be in early Oct. For me, that is really long distance prep.

  2. It's hot here; I guess I'm dreaming of cooler weather. :D
