Welcome to day twelve of the 12 Days of Christmas Crafts!! Today we have Ashley from Cherished Bliss sharing with us! Happy to have you Ashley! I know it's the "12 Days of Christmas Crafts" but I have two more days planned out....there were just too many to choose from, enjoy!

Hey everyone! I’m Ashley and I blog over at Cherished Bliss


I am so excited to be over here at The Kurtz Corner today! I started my blog about a year ago, but the last 6 months it has really become an import part of my life! At my blog you will find tutorials for kids, home d├ęcor, and basically anything a mother of two kids would want to make! I also host a link party ever Monday night – Friday, Craft and Tell, and I’d love for you to stop by and link up sometime!
Today I am going to show you something I made for my Christmas Mantel

Christmas Mantel Main

See that vase over to the left, yup, it’s super easy to do and the best part, it’s interchangeable throughout the seasons! 

A vase – new or old, ugly, or pretty, doesn’t matter: )
Spray paint primer, and white spray paint
A small amount of burlap and twine, and a ribbon color of your choice
Sticks from you backyard or randomly on the side of the road and a spray paint to match your ribbon

Christmas Burlap Vase

First thing I did was gather up all my sticks and spray paint them red, let them dry completely before moving them around! 

While those were drying I sprayed some primer on a black vase of mine until it was completely covered and dry. Next I spray painted several coats of white spray paint, then let that dry completely.

Next I cut a thick strip of burlap and hot glued it to the vase. I did this because I plan on leaving the burlap there. 

Then I took the red ribbon and got glued it to itself. I wanted to be able to take the red ribbon off. Then to keep it from sliding I tied the twin around. 

Burlap Vase
That’s it! Super easy right? When Christmas is over, just take of the red ribbon, and put whatever you want in place of the sticks!
Thanks so much for having my Audra! It was a blast being over here today!

    I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose
