Now It's Pottery Barn's Fault

Here we are 2 weeks away from Halloween and I've got Xmas on the brain.  First it was Home Goods' fault and now I blame it all on Pottery Barn.  I just got their new holiday catalog and it's definitely put me in an Xmas mood.
I picked up a few of these battery-operated candles from AC Moore earlier this week with the intent of using them for Halloween.  But after flipping through the PB catalog, I decided to make some for Xmas too.
I hand-stamped some Xmas holiday music onto plain ol' craft paper.  Then I used some dots to adhere it to my candle.  I tied some twine around the top with some jingle bells for a rustic look.  Super easy and the candles were only $2.99 at AC Moore - although I'm sure the Christmas Tree Shoppes will have them cheaper as we get closer to the holidays.
I can't wait to put a few of these in our front windows in December!

Great idea! I daren't even walk past Pottery Barn right now! I'm the same this year for some reason. Previous years I just concentrated on Halloween, and Christmas seemed ages away, but this year it's playing on my mind. I also have my three little boys & my husbands' birthdays in November so Christmas should really be the last thing that I need to worry about :)

Lovely. I haven't even started thinking about Christmas. Better get cracking or I'll miss all the good stuff.
