12 Days of Holiday Projects - Day 10

We now have a Pinterest page featuring the projects of many of the designers participating in the 12 Days of Holiday Projects. It's a very inspiring board and I hope you will check it out.

Welcome to Day 10 of The 12 Days of Holiday Projects Blog Event. Several crafty blog friends and I decided to post one holiday project a day for 12 days - just for fun. We’re posting projects we made using products we like and hope they will give you some inspiration for your own holiday craft projects. You will find links to all the other participating bloggers below. Hopefully you can find time to look at the other blogs and leave comments on any that inspire you. If we inspire you to make, something please let us know - we would love to see. Happy Holiday Crafting!!

For my Day 10 Project I'm sharing a set of little white pails that I decorate with holiday dies. I order these little pails from Oriental Trading Company. Since they're white, you can use them for many different occasions. To make these I die cut these holiday shapes on Tim Holtz Grunge Paper and colored them with Tim Holtz Distress Stains. I painted the top of the ornament with Brushed Pewter Crackle Paint and added some bling to the tree and the ornament. For the holly berry, I covered the berry with Glossy Accents to make it shiny. These pails are perfect for little gifts, candy, food, etc... You could add ribbon and tissue paper to make a beautiful gift. To be honest I wanted to put some tissue paper in them, but I've wrapped so many presents in the last few days I'm out. I only had some pink and orange and I did think those colors would go with my holiday theme!! I can't believe we only have 2 days left. I hope you can stop by tomorrow to see my Day 11 project.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you can make it to the blogs of the other ladies to see the awesome holiday projects they are sharing with you today.
