To the Great Beyond….

 

I just love how crafters inspire each other. I got the idea for this project from Trina Struckman from one of the papercraft groups I’m in on Facebook. She made a gorgeous version of the Weihnachtsglocke (Christmas Bell) from Sunshine Hobby Works. When I saw her post, I didn’t see the bells – I saw something completely different.

Do you remember the 1994 movie Stargate? I think it inspired a TV-series among other stuff? Anyways….it’s about this ancient ring-shaped device that creates a wormhole enabling travel to a similar device elsewhere in the universe. Now THAT was what I saw 😀

I made this from Granite AC Cardstock, grey Pearl cardstock and some glitter paper in Black. I used glow-in-the-dark vinyl for the signs and gold vinyl for the arrows.

Inside I added two rows of LED strips for light.

It was so much fun to make and all I really did was leaving out the bells.

It looks cool in the dark too 🙂

I think it will be a hit next weekend when my son has kids from his class over for a Birthday party since he requested a space/Halloween theme 😀

Thanks for stopping by and please let me know what you think of my wacky idea 😀

 

 

Christmas Centerpiece

 

Merry Christmas and happy 4th Sunday of Advent.

Today I want to show you the centerpiece I made for tonights Christmas Eve Table. The amazing Corn Husk Candle Ring from the JGW Autumn Aire kit.

I made it with Crepe paper in Gold instead of the corn husks (these are not available in Denmark) and AC Cardstock in Caramel.

It is so easy to make and with the crepe paper its so fast too. All you have to do with the paper is to curl it and glue it onto the ring.

Then I added a LED candle in the middle and decorated it with some hemp and rhinestone-look-alike ribbon. That’s it.

Now it matches the rest of the table that I’ve chosen to keep in gold this year.

So now I’m off to celebrate Christmas Eve with my Family and I want to wish each and everyone of you a Merry Christmas and hope all your wishes comes true. It has been a fabulous dec. with lots of beautiful craft projects and I hope you got to make all of yours as I did mine. See you on the other side for New Years.

Update: Here’s a few pictures of how the table settings looked last night 🙂
