Twelve Days of Christmas


Made two of these "partridges in pear trees" today.  They are wooden pear shapes hand painted and distressed to look aged.  I like the simplicity of it. 


Then I finished up a large wooden block where I did all 12 Days of Christmas.  It's a solid wood block about 14x8x2 and also distressed.


Thinking about doing some ornaments of the 12 days, what do you think?

  16. Super cute! I wonder if I could make one using one of my fake fruit pears. Maybe I can glue something on the bottom to make it stand up... Great idea.
