*** Takeover #1 ***
Let's welcome Laurie from Scene of Sublime as she is the first to takeover my blog for the month of November. Are you wondering what's going on? Check out this post where I explain what's happening. A very special thank you to ALL my friends who have so willingly stepped in to TAKEOVER my blog for a couple weeks :)
In the mood to try some new holiday decor this season? Try experimenting with some fresh colors – even if it’s only on a small project like this one. You may find yourself a new festive color scheme!
This project was très simple and cost almost nothing! Just a little time and crafting effort. Basically, the only supplies I used were a 25¢ candle platter from Goodwill, a candle, dollar store turquoise floral wire, acorns from the yard, craft paint, glitter (fine and chunky). I didn’t actually BUY anything specifically for the project :) that makes momma happy!
I love blue and green together – I have lots of it in my home, in fact. So, I was drawn to using these pretty colors in this holiday project. Retro holiday decor like the gorgeous topiaries in the image above inspired me to create a home accessory project with some retro, funky, colorful pizzazz!
The process itself was a basic - paint the parts, glitter the parts and hot glue them together (the candle platter and acorns, that is) - type of thing. I also modpodged and glittered the candle.
Last, I used the floral wire to create a twist of a holiday tree effect twirling off the top of the candle – fun!
I have loved being here at Bella Before and After today and would love, love, love for any and all of you to come see me anytime over at my blog Scene of Sublime!
Chronically Yours, Laurie
**Thank you SOOOO much Laurie**
I enjoyed having you share this great project with us today.
Good luck with the giveaway girl :)
