My First Xmas Project of the Season

I know Monday is Halloween, but who isn't already thinking about Christmas projects?  I know I am.
I'm battling my first cold of the season, so I had some down time this week to do some crafting.
I used an old spaghetti tin to make this pretty.  First I added some sheet music as my background.  Then I picked the pretty French image (from the Graphics Fairy) and glued that on the sheet music.
Next came the fun part - and I do say that with a touch of sarcasm. I added some cheese cloth to the front of the image.  Not exactly an easy task to do while handling a hot glue gun.  Ouch!  I then added some lace, burlap trim and buttons.
My finishing touch was the Scrabble letters to spell out Noel.

Happy to say I had everything I needed on hand for this quick Xmas project.
