Tin Can Jack-O-Lantern Planters with DecoArt

Metallic Holiday Silhouettes


Have you been hitting the sales? Mike, Mary and I ended up some black Friday shopping, we had to go buy wood shaving and stopped at Herb Phillipson’s for winter gloves on the way home. Mike says he’ll go with me to Michael’s tomorrow to buy picture frames for Christmas gifts but I might end up going it alone. If you happen to be out shopping the craft sales pick up a 4 pack of 6×6 canvases for this fun winter holiday silhouettes project.
