Christmas Copycat & a Stencil Sneakpeek

I know you all want to see the stencil project reveal, but Debbie is hosting her Copycat Challenge party, and I had to get in on the action having missed the last one because of Halloween craziness.  I flagged so many fantastic magazine ideas for this party, but the one that won out was this one from Family Circle magazine.

How simple and pretty is that?  I love the contrast of the shiny ornaments against the nubby sweater texture.  First things first, I needed to create the warm sweater bowl.  Not wanting to cut up my one white sweater, I found an old thermal in the back of my closet.  It had a nice texture to it, so I cut off the bottom part of the sleeve.  It's now a 3/4 length thermal.  I'm sorry about the bad pictures, but my camera's flash stopped working so it looks like there's an unexpected item on Santa's list.

I just needed to fill the bowl with some ornaments and a blinged out pine cone, and here's my version.

Love this.  It's sitting on my coffee table now.  And how about that stenciling sneakpeek?

Thanks for popping in and checking out my Christmas Copycat.
