We have all been so excited about this Hop and now we can show you are Holiday projects.
Now for my first project.  I created a Center piece just perfect for that Thanksgiving dinner next week.
I used Creative Kuts file Flower Designs Collection 1.  The file includes 6 different flowers and leaves for all of them  in this collection. You can find  tutorials on Creative Kuts Blog and here on mine as well on how to create your own flowers. The Glass vase I purchased at Michaels and as you can  see I made various flowers in fall colors and sizes with leaves.  I used the hot glue gun to adhere to the glass.  I added a few fall berries for filler among the flowers and then added nuts and pine cones the base.






Here are a few close ups of some of the roses.










For my second project I made a Christmas wreath center piece. 
I used the Poinsettia Flower. It can also be hung on the wall in a small area as well,  very versatile. 
I used Gingham wire ribbon and tied it all around the wreath. In doing this it adds some extra color and will increase the size of your project. I added white berries to give a little more contrast. 

In this picture I have displayed with a normal tall,wide pillar candle.





In this next picture I have taken a vase and filled it with the gem pebbles you can get at any craft store ( I got mine from Wal-Mart lol) and used three tapered candles and made them different heights just by bury them at different depths in the gems.







This third picture I have hung it on the Wall for an additional enhancement to the Christmas decor. 










 I hope you enjoyed my projects. Make sure you leave a comment and become a follower. Remember the requirements to be eligible for the grand prize!!
