This is what you do if you've been collecting Christmas fabric for three years in a row with all the intentions in the world of making stockings and table toppers or other miscellaneous Christmas-themed items...and then it's gotten too late to bother: fold and stack them in a pretty wire basket and make it part of your Christmas decor anyway.
Look a little closer and you'll even see a pair of pants I thrifted from Goodwill a couple of years ago with the intention of turning it into a bag. Yep - I even squeeze laundry into my Christmas decor.
That basket beside it holds all the plastic bags left over from grocery trips (even though I keep meaning to take my cloth bags darnit). I stuck a small wreath and some large pine cones on top.
And that scalloped plate? I bought a 99 cent rub-on from Michael's and one popsicle-rubbing stick and ten minutes later I had a Christmas platter. Before you go calling me clever, I have to give credit to that idea to all the crafty bloggers out there who have been doing this for a while now with scriptures and poems and such.
