Southwestern Door Candy
Long time, no blog.
My computer's been suffering from the flu. Sorry I haven't been around much. Hoping you enjoyed Halloween and the current change of seasons. Personally, autumn couldn't get here fast enough.
I wanted to share a little something with you. This time its a ristra (dried chile peppers woven together), very common in our southwestern region. I "glammed" the wreath with ordinary craft store glitter glue simply using my finger to apply. Oh yes! And please NOTE: wear plastic gloves. We're talking about chiles here, ya know! The extra glitzy stuff mostly came from Raz Imports, a wholesale decoration company found in many frou frou stores. I attached two beaded picks and two velvet oak leaf picks on the exterior, staggering the levels. I don't like things to be too matchy matchy. A bow was added at the top along with a gorgeous sequined sunflower. Its topped off with a glittered, painted, monogram letter. Fabulous!
Thanks for stopping by!
