Annual Christmas Project: 2016

If you've been following my blog(s) for the last few years, you know that every year I try and share a fun Christmas-y DIY project/craft.

One year it was a pinecone garland that had the word "MERRY" on it in wooden letters:

Another year was a tabletop Christmas tree made out of glass ball ornaments:

And the year before last were ornaments I made to look like balls of yarn (admittedly, they didn't turn out quite as well as I had imagined):

Last year I was on a blogging break, so there's nothing to show from that time period, but if I had still been clogging up the internets I'm sure I would have come up with something to share.

I have to say, this year may be my most epic DIY project yet. I posted a sneak peek (not sneak peak and not sneek peek) a few weeks ago on Instagram:

I don't have a supply list or detailed, step-by-step instructions to give you this year (you're welcome), but I wanted to share the final results anyway. Or is it a work in progress?

Merry Christmas, everyone!

P.S. My apologies to anyone who had their hopes up for a "real" DIY project they could copy. I mean, feel free to copy this, but I'm not responsible for how it turns out...
