I saw this simple idea the other day for Santa pants... They had done it on red plastic cups. I needed to find something red first... I was looking for something like a plant pot thinking I would have to paint.
Done... red ramekins from the cheap shop. $2 each... bargain. A bit of black felt ribbon, a white felt belt buckle & some glue - voila... these will hold my pillar candles on the Christmas table.
They are so cute & effective I think, that I went back to the cheap shop & bought 8 more. I will fill them with something, cello wrap them & gift them. Nicer than a throw away cup & something cute & useful later on.
I can't find the original picture that I saw but there are a few other types of this on Pinterest if you care to look on there with the search of Santa Pants!
Now I don't know why I did this yesterday but I did. I was in the middle of making hats, but couldn't as the little guy wouldn't have a sleep so that messed up my make time. So instead for some reason I picked this up & went with it. I had no intention yesterday of doing these but well, things just happen sometimes & I went with it. Since I had the back ground cut & the sun fabric still left over from the other squares it really didn't take long. If you remember or not, I did the first 10 Happy Sun quilt squares at about this time last year. I was caught up with them & then had to wait for the last 2 to be released. Well of course I didn't do them at the time. But these last 2 were on my list on the right hand side of my blog "to try to do list". & well there is another done! I guess for next year I had better put making the quilt top on the list.
