A few friends and relatives have dropped over this week and this tabletop has sent them into a panic. Some even questioned my sanity. Everybody relax, I am not decorating for Christmas. I am just doing some strategic planning.
I bought these cute wooden figures at our church rummage sale last Spring (for 75 cents!) and I am trying to figure out the best way to utilize them. They came in 3 small ziploc bags and I finally had the chance this week to empty the bags and see what I have.
I've imagined using them several different ways, and I think I have settled on making a "village" by gluing them (standing up and facing out) to a flat wooden wreath form. Then I can put a large 3-wick candle in the middle of the village and it will make a really sweet centerpiece.
I like the idea of children walking around the table to see the different characters and how the "story" develops. Wish me luck! And yes, once it is finished, I will tuck it away until December.
