I am a blogger... and I am for Christmas.

We have all been doing it for weeks now. Some got it done earlier than others. Some (like me) are still working on it....
Decorating for Christmas.
For the most part, it is pretty much the same decorations in the same place just about every year. This year I wanted to make some editions to my Christmas decorations, and more than that, I wanted to make them myself! I have a super easy one for you today. Great for older kids to do with you too! Or you can just do it yourself, which is what I did. :)

Here's what ya need:
1. Card board letters to spell any word your little heart desires. 

2. Several different colors/patterns of paper.

3. Modge Podge and a paint brush or sponge.

4. A yummy snack

(I went through Home Alone 1, 2, & yes even 3)
Then you tear the paper into strips. This really depends on how you would like them to look in the end. I did mine a little bit messy so that the end result would look more random and colorful.

 Modge podge the back of the strips and stick them on the letter. They can be any direction, and I wrapped mine all the way around so that the front and back of the letters were presentable.
After you have covered the letter with strips of paper, coat the entire letter with another coat of modge podge, making sure there are no corners or edges sticking up. Then just set it aside to dry.
 And when it is all said and done you have some fun Christmas decorations to add to a shelf or table!

I have already gotten several compliments on them. :)
