A Christmas Plaque

I made this plaque to put on my table in my foyer. Love the poem! I have been working on my Christmas decorating a little each day. Mostly I do it when my son is napping or after he goes to bed at night. Things are coming along, but there's plenty more to do. I don't have my main tree up yet. I want my husband to put it in an urn or either build a box for it to sit in. I'm not in a big hurry to put it up since I have other projects to work on. I'm so bad about starting too many things at one time. Like my mantel - I haven't touched it since I posted about it and it is nowhere near finished! I am going to try to finish it in the next few days. Have a great Monday everybody!

Your plaque turned out very nice! I am so impressed! It looks professional. I am always spending so much money on buying plaques. I'd love the instructions for making one. Seriously, it's beautiful!

That's such a cute idea and it looks great there! I know, I always have so many ideas floating around that I'm always anxious to start them so I have way too many unfinished projects hanging around!

I love your plaque. I am so like you. I have so many things going on I am kind of stressing that it is coming so fast. Can't wait to see what you do for your tree to sit in! Have a great day

Your plaque is so pretty, and I love that poem! It turned out beautifully!

I wanted to let you know that I have something over at my blog for you! :)

(Oh, and I am just like that too~ starting 3,000 things at once, and then I wonder why I'm so overwhelmed!) Have a great night! :)

Love the plaque. We set our Christmas tree on a box my husband made. It makes the tree look taller and you can put lots of presents underneath. And the box holds the ornaments when we take down the tree. Mimi
