I’m sharing this with funky junk’s saturday nite #107 and friday frolic and keeping the christmas alive, 365!
my new christmas tree is up and I needed all new ornaments this year, so I thought I’d show what I have so far. the tree came from big lots--$70 and I found the cement urn at lowes-$20. my husband built a wooden tree stand to fit the urn. there’s an old lace table cloth wrapped around the base of the tree.
I sat down one day, and made several fabric roses to add to different ornaments.
this started as an unfinished wood snowflake. it got a coat of cream paint, and was stamped with a text stamp. I globbed on some white paint, and while still wet, sprinkled glitter on it. then, I inked the edges with brown ink and added a fabric rose it to the center of it.
meijer had these angel wings for $1.50, and I just added the roses and/or buttons to them.
when I was out junking, I found 12 of these tins, and lined them with sheet music and added a rose.
I painted some birdhouses white, and added different clock faces to some of them.
numbers and old hardware to others.
and several hoops were painted white and old lace was stretched over them. I finished them off with some ribbon and charms.
I dried some of my roses and added them to some small pic frames. I cut a 1/2 yard of burlap into 2 1/2” strips to make a simple garland, .which you can spot in this pic.
I have lots of bits and pieces of lace, so, I filled several glass bulbs with them and added a charm.
I really like how this is shaping up—that’s all for today, –thanks for looking:)
