Deck the Halls

Deck the Halls Blog Hop!!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… and this Hop is going to get you in the mood for the Holidays for sure!

If you came here from  Shannon’s blog, you are in the right place.  If you just stumbled upon this post and would like to start from the beginning, please visit the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons blog.  Trust me, you won’t want to miss a thing!

We are showcasing some festive holiday decorations that are just perfect for Christmas, be it decorating your home, sending Season’s Greeting cards or simply leaving Santa a plate of Cookies and something COLD to drink! (Hey, I live in AZ!!)

Using vinyl, I cut the phrase Christmas Cookies from this file… it pieced together so very easily too!  
I cut out some simple circles and decorated a pretty plate that I will fill with some of Santa's favorite treats!  Santa will want to have something cold to wash down those treats, so I made him a Koozie to go!  Again, using the same file, I cut out the Stockings and placed them on a Koozie I purchased at Michael's… perfect for a little holiday cheer!  Wink, Wink…

File I used…so cute!!
