Okay, I'm cheating. This is a project I did last Christmas, but it's one of my favorites! So I thought I'd share it again. I'm sooooo ready to get on a plane and go somewhere warm and fun! Not just because of the cold and snow, but it would be amazing to take a much needed break from reality.
Wait... for the record... this for the new Doodle Dragon Studios Red & Green Challenge. Make a project using one of Dustin's DDS images and incorporate the red and green theme. Then post your masterpiece on to the DDS challenge by Sunday, December 9th.
To make the palm leaves, simply put the lei out flat, then fold it in half. There should be four layers. Then tie a ribbon (I used brown raffia) in the middle. Thread through your ornaments and tag. Then tie to the bottle. This is also super cute when you attach it to an A&W Rootbeer 2 liter (instead of pina colada mixer). It looks like a real palm tree.
Hope you have a Merry Christmas!
