I hate to do this to you all! It is a quite a bit early for this holiday to be mentioned, sorry. I had to get a head start though, so I could enjoy this leading up to “Christmas”. Ooooooh, it has become such a dirty word to utter before Halloween is over. Heck, at work I have been merchandising Christmas items for a few months now, lol. I definitely am one of the groaners when said holiday is pushed earlier and earlier.
After starting this canning jar lid project years ago, I had Halloween, Thanksgiving, Easter, and St. Pat’s Day covered. Hadn’t quite been inspired for a Christmas themed lid. Well, until recently. (I won’t bore you with the prep for these lids, you can see them if you go back a ways.) Actually, I was getting a craft item out of the closet and came face to face with the Easter Bunny lid. The fabric ears gave me an idea for my Christmas lid. You’ll recognize where I am going when you see the colors I started with…..
Then, I got to work on the appendages…..
He still wasn’t complete, something was missing. It came to me quickly and I remedied the problem.
The glue is still wet, but that finished it for me. My Reindeer lid was ready to take his place of honor on the mantel for his holiday visit.
Oh, I did promise him that he wouldn’t have to protect any candy corn’s, I would definitely find a more appropriate treat for him to watch over….. Cyn
