My token Christmas post is done. The thing is, I don’t think I’ll be showing you anything you haven’t already seen out there already. However, it’s my take on it, in my eclectic tightwad way.
DISCLAIMER: In my last post I stated that the 3M product that I purchased from the Home Depot I used was my best friend. My HUMAN best friend had a problem with that statement, saying she had never found herself in the predicament of being replaced by a craft product before. I would like to clarify that the 3M product is my BFF in my DIY life only.
Lampshades too expensive to replace for the Christmas season? Use wrapping paper and Washi tape for a quick- fix.
Washi tape and sticker dots sprayed gold:
Father-in-Law’s intricate Christmas ornaments – my fave is the little birdhouse with lights, snow and bird peeking out.
The upside-down vase with Epsom salt snow, pinecone tree and sequinned deer.
The branch secured to the ceiling by another fabulous 3M product which is NOT any form of best friend, only a mere acquaintance. Just so we are clear I did NOT have any relations besides a working relationship with said 3M product. (which is actually made to hold your cords to the wall to prevent tangling).
Add painted and/or snow sprayed pinecones, bits of tree, sparkly bits and bobs.
The giant canvas turned from former Wedding seating chart to light-show at my exterior entryway.
Draw on chosen word with chalk.
Paint word in.
Poke holes along word (I used a small screwdriver – we are old friends, nothing more.)
Add exterior Christmas lights. Push bulb through to front of canvas keeping the mess behind. Like so.
I glue gunned a circle of glue around the front of each light to hold it in place on the canvas. Some of the holes ended up being a little bigger than the light, so it filled the gap. Make sure it works inside before you take it outside!
Decorate your dog, but do not overly embarrass her. I may have crossed that line…
And lastly, have the most beautiful, warm, loving, Jesus filled Christmas you can possibly muster!
