Now that the Christmas tree is decorated, it's time to take care of all the other areas of the house. I like to decorate the bookcases that are in the living room. Adding lights makes them super festive and creates the best nighttime mood.
But I don't decorate with just anything. I am going to show you how to reuse old decor to make bright Christmas vignettes. Because pretty can be made from just about anything. Even if you don't know where it came from!
A happy November to all! I hope you've all taken out your sweaters and winter clothes. The first thing that comes to my mind after I put all the Halloween decor away is how to decorate for Christmas. You may say it's too early, but in fact, it is just the right time to start thinking about Christmas. In our home it is a grand affair, not just a tree, so planning has to be done in advance. Done by me, that is, because no one else will bother with all this stuff.
So let's kick the Christmas planning off with a tutorial on How to Make a Christmas Wreath with Metallic Accents.
It is finally starting to feel like fall around here and I think just in time since the first day of fall was this past Saturday. Have I ever told you how much I love fall?
And to celebrate this most special day of all (for me anyway) I chose to make a simple fall wreath. So today I'm sharing how you can make a simple dollar store fall wreath.
Aside from painting furniture all the time... yes I know it seems that's all I've been doing lately, I also like to surf the internet and be inspired by some very talented blogger friends.
I was recently in Tanya's blog Twelve O Eight and came across a really pretty farmhouse wreath made from Kraft paper. I was so impressed with it that I decided to do my own version. So today I am showing you how to make a colorful wreath with packing paper.
So the other day my son looked at our front door and said "Christmas is over" I laughed nervously at him and said "Yes, but this is a winter wreath you see here" I had removed the "Merry Christmas" part and so it looked plenty wintry to me. He just gave me a skeptical look. Truth be told, it is still winter outside, I even had to shovel snow yesterday. But he got me thinking that what I needed was a change in attitude.
So for this month's Ten on the Tenth I've decided to make a new Spring wreath for the front door. The theme is, things that we love to decorate with all the time.
And for those of you wondering what Ten on the Tenth is well, it is a group of us blogging friends who get together on this day to share a project with you, one that costs us less then ten dollars. Last month we talked about Spring projects and the month before we shared Valentine's Day ideas.
I'm Mary and I recently moved to New York from beautiful Greece. I like to re-purpose and up-cycle anything that is old or looks like junk. Join me as we use our creativity to spark some life into old things. And do it frugally! You will also see lots of photography of my Greece and New York.
