Elf Watching

So how about we fast forward to Christmas again and I share a fun Christmas light I created yesterday?  I had originally planned to take the day off from work yesterday to catch up on some things and as it turned out I'm home sick.  Then we thought we were going to be in the path of Hurricane Hermine but the storm started taking more of an easterly path and so we were spared.  But even with all that going on I was determined to get something created.
To create this light I used one of my favorite 'apothecary, style glass jars from Hobby Lobby.  These lights are so fun to create and the possibilities are absolutely limitless.  I've probably created over a couple dozen of these already in preparation for my first craft show of the season later this month.
Creating these lights is super easy.  You just wipe the glass down with rubbing alcohol and allow it to dry. Then you apply your vinyl design.  (I like to use permanent Oracal 651 which I purchase from Vinyl Spectrum.  They've always provided great customer service and are quick to ship.)  After that you spray with a frosted glass spray.  (I've used both Valspar and Rust-o-leum brands with great results.)
The design that I used for this light is titled Christmas Cutting File and it's from the Hungry JPEG. 
With that, I am off to enter my project into the following challenges:
