    I'm NOT trying to sell these to you all, I'm actually gonna post them on Craigslist. I just need to know if you all would buy these and how much you'd pay for them. I would be taking the pics on a better background, I just finished this one (my first, so GO EASY!!! [​IMG] ) The ribbon isn't blue like it looks, it's white with snowmen on it. I made the bow, my first attempt also, and the poinsetta things were the cheapest trimming I could get....Thanks!!!

    I think you would have to give an idea on the cost of the materials you used and time it took to make before coming up with a price. That is how I decide on prices for things I make.

    They took me about an hour to make. I was thinking of charging $15-$20 each....But I don't know if they look nice enough for people to buy!

    Any craft fairs near you soon? I think if you could set them up, with them lite at a craft fair you could probably get that for them. It might be harder on craigs list since people can't see how pretty they must be in person. I would probably pay that for one, but I love christmas decorations and I really think its pretty.

    My niece made these and sold them for 20.00 each. She had a few more things on the top of them and most of the items she picked up at the $Tree. Its a good way to make some extra money if you can get the glass block at a good deal! Good Luck and Merry Christmas!

    cjeanean Those are pretty! A thought just came to me while looking at them though. What if you sat them on edge and ran the bow ribbon around where there is a "trough" around the small side. Like where they would put the brick putty (or whatever they call it) , then you could run the cord out the edge of the bow and it would be non existent really. I would put it up on the edge anyway to show it off.

    Are the lights totally white or colored. Colored is cool too. My brother made a piggy bank out of one he had. I would say $15 or 20 bucks is a good price for them.

    Great job! [​IMG] [​IMG]


    By the way where are you located in Missouri, I have a bunch of poinsettia flowers and assorted stuff I could send you (I want it out of my house!)
