I had such fun making this one.I actually giggled a couple times thinking about Christmases past.
I remember my Grandmother having a red wreath made of cellophane on her door. Anyone else remember those? EVERYONE had the lighted candles in their windows and BIG bulb outdoor lights. Cheesy music (we do currently have Grandma got run over by a reindeer) and cardboard decorations were the norms. AND miraculously we waited until mid- December to start decorating, not before Halloween!
I had this record in its original paper jacket given to me by Lyneen. I found it again as I pulled out the Holiday items. I almost didn't want to do anything to it, but that is silly. It needed to be shared. I hesitantly cut apart the jacket.
While that was drying I embossed on the record being careful not to warp it.
Then came the pop dots to the reverse side of the record, which I reinforced with white glue, the Jenga block was glued into place, metal holly was added.
A 1950's Christmas remembrance.
THANKS Lyneen for my oldie and goodie
