Merry Christmas...And Don't Blink

Merry Christmas! I'm super happy to be done with final exams. I'm taking graduate classes and I just can't believe how busy I've been. Between grad classes, my little one, my husband, my job, and my other extracurricular activities, I haven't had much time to devote to this blog, but I am still working on my big end of the year "best and worst list." Please be patient with me!
In the meantime, I wanted to share the craft project I'm working on: "Weeping Christmas Angel." My primary reason for making this is my own is frugality. I'm all about buying stuff online, but when I saw just how simple it was to make your own weeping Christmas angel, I decided to do it myself. I must give complete credit to this wonderful 'Doctor Who' site I came across recently (Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey). It doesn't appear that she's updated her site in a while, but she had some really wonderful posts! So check her out if you're a Whovian.

I wish I would have taken a pic of the before angel, but I didn't even think about it. I just got out my can of stone spray paint and went to work. I bought a cheap Christmas angel tree topper, then I trimmed off some of the feathers and embellishments. Then I spray painted her with Krylon Stone paint. You can add a coat of clear sealer if you like. I then krazy glued the hands to the eyes. Easy peasy. Total cost with Amazon Prime free shipping was around $30.

  3. Wow, that is such a wonderful idea! It's definitely a craft idea I'm going to try next year, or maybe even just for fun while watching Doctor Who. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas! :)
