Work gift exchange

We drew names at work and I got Kelli. I was happy because she is the co-worker I know the best. When I asked her what she wanted, she told me to make her something.
So this is what I came up with.  Her living room is burgundy and black with silver accents.I bought an unfinished frame at Hobby Lobby for about $3.
I also bought some Christmas picks with berries at 66% off. I had the thick stickers that my mom bought me for a quarter at Big Lots.

I painted the frame black and misted it with some homemade glimmer mist. I think it turned out cute.
Then I found this yummy apple cinnamon scented candle at WalMart for $1. (gotta love  the after Christmas clearance)
The right color just too plain. So I cut some snowflakes out of vinyl and dressed it up a bit

Then I had to get her a Hobby Lobby gift card since I only spent about $6 so far. I saw these super cute pop up gift card holders on Cardz TV.

We had the exchange on January 1st and she loved it all!
Thanks for coming to visit me today.I am really going to try to post more regularly this year!
