Below are my junk~hunting finds with the "before" repainted tree~~
I removed all the colored beads~~
hand~painted the tree with leftover house paint; let dry and brushed on Elmer's glue and sprinkled on gobs of white glitter~~
then NOT finding any replacement clear "Christmas" type beads anywhere~~used a sprig of holiday floral beads; cut them off and glued stems into the holes. Worked perfectly!
Christmas cards were turned into "hanging ornaments" ~~(these have been good sellers for me this year at my booth); used vintage papers and trims and hot~glued sparkle berry sprigs~~they look pretty gathered in bowls and baskets too~~
~~and Dollar Store ornaments revamped with more silver or white glitter~~
~~I love how the ceramic tree turned out; too cold to spray paint~~actually cut expenses by using leftover can~paint!
What's your latest project?
Here's where the parties are this week~~I'll see you there!
