It’s the final week for the Santa’s Little Elves Design Team! I’m honored to have been asked to join the this group of designers to bring you amazing projects every Friday between November 3rd and December 15th.  Each of the elves has contributed one project during the seven weeks that will include step-by-step instructions, color photos and a complete list of supplies. This design team is all about bringing you fabulous gift ideas with a wide variety of styles and expertise. Each elf has designed their project with the intent of making it easy for you to duplicate.

I’ve included written instructions below for those of you using a mobile device. I also have a free PDF tutorial available for those that would like to download and save this project for a later day.
