A few Christmases ago I made these for the ladies that I Visit Teach - yup, I'd rather make something with wood than make something in the kitchen! I saw something like them in a Country Sampler magazine and filed it away in my brain for a future project.
One of the ladies was lucky enough to have an "L" in her last name. So with a little shuffling around of the letters . . .
. . . a new ribbon on the candle, and some new painting on the backside, she has an item she can keep out year round!!!
Pretty cute eh?
And now that time has past and I've had more time to think, I wonder why I didn't paint words like "Family" or "Simplify (my theme word!) or any other words with an "L" in them, on the backs of the others. Silly me! Good thing Christmas comes around every year!!!
