A letter for Santa all tied up not naughty, but nice!
I have no idea what this tubular contraption is. It looks like a giant curler one might have used for a curly do in the 50s. Can you imagine sleeping in these? I guess there is a price to pay for beauty.
I started by wrapping twine around some ribbon. I like to mix natural with glitz for an unexpected festive look.Throw in some extra pieces of twine for knotting and baubles.
Next comes the greenery. This is my new favorite....Mountain Hemlock. It has a Charlie Brown appeal and the cutest little pinecones ever!
Red Huck is always a festive choice.
I still love the traditional Incense Cedar. The yellow tips are beautiful and add a punch of needed color
Using my twine I tied a little swag. Tip: Make up a bunch of these and have them at the ready in your garage. They are great for dressing up last minute gifts.
Add some treasures of your choice to the swag. I added a small red ball along with a faucet handle.
Curl up the ribbon around a pen. If you cant find one (often the case in my house) use your finger!
Tie knots in your twine and throw in a few extra baubles.
Heve the kiddies write a very nice letter to Santa and tuck it in the tube.
All ready for Mr. Clause!

If you have followed this site you know that I do a special letter holder for Santa each Christmas. This is a fun thing to do with your children to say thanks for all that Santa does. So do one yourself this year and place it right next to the milk and cookies before you and the kids settle in for a long winter's nap.

JunkArchitect writes: Greens, ribbons and galvanized never looked so good together and it's a great idea to boot. That tube thing IS a 50's hair curler because I still use one to put all the curls in my do...hahaha! Can't ya tell?
