Today I am sharing a few older projects with you in preparation for Christmas because really we cannot start soon enough. Anyway the turkey just needs to be thrown in the oven! "wink"
I'd like to also welcome you to our 2017 Holiday Link Party! We've joined a group of our blogging friends to bring you a month long holiday party. Along with six other bloggers, we’ll be sharing ideas for holiday decor, crafts, cards, tree trimmings, recipes, holiday traditions, activities, and more! We invite you join us and share yours, too. There is no limit on the number of links as long as they are family friendly and related to any of the December holidays. We welcome your older holiday posts, too.
I have two projects that I am revisiting today. They are both repurposes because that's what I love to do.
The Paddles that Became Christmas Chalkboards
I had these paddles that were originally a toy with Barbie graphics on them. They had never been used as such and so I repurposed them one side as a chalkboard. To see what the other side (the Christmasy side) looks like click here.
The Broken Mirror which became a Base
I had a cute little mirror in the shape of a flower and it broke. As with all broken things, I always examine them to see if I can find another purpose for them. In this case all it took was a little paint and some imagination. See the project here.
