Mistletoe Christmas Crate & Cat on the Naughty List

Have you ever watched adorable little children waiting in line for their turn to sit on Santa’s lap, then one of those sweet little cherubs climbs on and proceeds to pull Santa’s beard and push on his belly, just to see if it’s real?

Well, if our new little cat was a child, she’d be THAT child.

Don’t let looks deceive you.

She looks sweet now, but you don’t know what she’s put me through today.

I was trying to take photos of my latest project when I realized I didn’t see her anywhere.

She had escaped out the dog door, and I spent the next 20 minutes chasing her through our pasture.

After catching her and bringing her back indoors, she jumped from the arm of the couch straight into the middle of the Christmas tree we just decorated last night.

After removing her from the tree and hanging up all the ornaments she’d knocked down, I went back to finish taking photos, only to discover she’d decided to take a long winter’s nap in the middle of my display.

She’s lucky I love her! 🙂

Oh yeah, back to my project …

I’ve got a few new stencil designs available now.

The first one is a Mistletoe Farms Christmas stencil (available in my online shop HERE).

I used leftover white paint to stencil the design on a super old crate I’ve had for several years.

It took less than five minutes and it’s just the right size to hold a pot of poinsettias and a miniature Christmas tree.

Hopefully the naughty cat won’t try to leap into its branches!

I’ve got several more DIY Christmas projects I’ll be sharing this week, including another one using the Mistletoe Farms stencil.

I hope you’ll come back tomorrow to see a super cute one that uses an empty coffee can!

  1. I’m so happy to see that you got a new family member, Angie! It’s wonderful that you adopted a cat again. She’s a cute girl and a great addition to your lovely vignette. What’s her name? Your stenciled crate turned out beautiful.

  2. Hi Angie – The cat photo bomb makes the picture of the crate that much more adorable! Love the back story. Have a wonderful day! Hugs, Holly

    Although I adore my fluffy white blue eyed persian beauty I am partial to Marmalades. She is sweet and must agree with Holly- she adds to the charm of your vignettes. Merry Christmas

    She’s a doll! I have 4, and it’s great they are very loved because they are little devils some days. They keep me busy daily. I would die without their company!

  5. So funny, Angie…she is so sweet! Love your project!
