Welcome to the Songs of Christmas Blog Hop with Two Scrapbook Friends! You should have arrived here from Ann's blog.
Our Blog Hop is all about the Songs of Christmas and the inspiration for my project comes from the song Walking in a Winter Wonderland. Everytime I hear this song I picture walking in a park (let's say Waterloo Park) with the snow falling gently. The snow always shows up best when you look up at a light post.....and that is what inspired my project!!!
I found this great SVG file at SVG Attic that was exactly the type of lamp post I was thinking of. The file was designed so that the finished project would be aproximately 6-inches tall so I modified it and my finished post is about 18-inches tall.
In the spirit of Christmas, I added a silver bell to my paper bow and attached it with some bakers twine.
One of my favourite parts of this project is the hanging sign off the post. I cut letters out using my Silhouette and added some holly for a splash of colour!
The top panels of the roof are embossed with a snowflake embossing folder. Then I added some texture paste to the sides and added some glitter for some sparkle. It really gives the feeling that the snow is dripping down from the top. I added a battery operated tea light (that actually flickers) which really brings my lamp post to life.
I really, really enjoyed putting this project together. I always amazes me what you can do with paper. I hope I have inspired you to create something festive for your Christmas home decor.
