12 Days Of Christmas Blog Hop: Day 7

Welcome to Day 7: 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop!

Hello my crafty friends! Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop: Day 7! Can you believe the Holidays are quickly approaching.What great way to start of the Season by visiting us for these 12 Days filled with Christmas Ideas. If you have arrived from Sandra's blog, you are in the right place, if not I would really love for you to start at the beginning with our dearest Host Sylvia.

This Christmas Season is the best holiday for me because I look forward to spending the holidays with my family and husband. But also to be able to give others as best as I can. My goal for this Christmas Season is to give back some how. I know that I am not able to help everyone but every little counts. This Christmas I would love to provide one child in need of a Christmas miracle by providing them with a back pack filled with items such as clothes, a toy, school supplies, and yummy snacks. I also want to find out about how I can go help at a shelter and serve food to the people in need. Truly these are my goals for this Christmas Season and hope to accomplish them. With these 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop, you will get to see some fun projects that I plan to send out to some kids or family and brighten up their day.

For this project, I've seen many talented people create projects with tiles. I wanted to give it a try and see what I could create. So I wanted to create a fun Christmas Tile that can be used to set the spirit of Christmas in your home. I went to Home Depot which for some reason it's my favorite place to go, I guess it's because I grew up going with my dad all the time to pick up supplies.So when I go to Home Depot, I start to think about what I can buy and what I can use to make things with. Here's hoping you like this project. :)

First: Take a small clear tile and lay it on top of newspaper.
 Second: Take White Acrylic paint to paint the snow at the bottom and top of the tile. Then, take Red Acrylic paint to paint the center of the tile.
 Third, take two foam balls and hot glue them together to create a snowman. Now, after several tries, I finally got it to stick to the tile. (LOL) Also be sure to let the tile set to dry. I realized that is why my snowman didn't want to stick. haha
 Fourth, I cute 2 snowflakes from my Martha Stewart Snowflake Punch. Then I added them to the tile.I also decorated my snowman with several accessories.
 Last, you can place your Christmas Decorated Tile onto a holder.

White Tile: Purchased at Home Depot
Acrylic Paint: Red, White
Foam Balls, Googly Eyes, Buttons, Ribbon, Black Pipe Cleaner
Brown Card Stock for arms
Blue Stickles
Hot Glue Gun
Martha Stewart Snowflake Puncher
