Hooray… it’s not even Dec 1 and my house is decorated and CLEAN! It’s a big deal for me.. Shhh.. no one breathe or dirty a dish!…. It’s so great to wake up to those Christmas tree lights and have some morning coffee, isn’t it?!
Here are two “whimsical” projects we completed this past weekend that I am super excited about!
I say “we” because my talented husband cut up the last of that pallet wood I had. plus some scraps into a Christmas tree!
First, he made those cuts for me and I spray painted aqua and red colors. After those were dry he used screws to nail the wood pieces all together. I stencils two white love birds and that was it. Bright, simple and cheery….love it!
My wreath took all of 10 minutes!
I bought a wood wreath form from Micheal’s which already had holes in it. Then I bought a feather boa for 50% off at Hobby Lobby (with the holiday decor) for $5.00. I just twisted the boa around the entire wreath and tied the two ends. I already had red ornaments and used those traditional wire hangers to hang them on the wreath since it had holes in it. They worked perfect! No glue needed! I finished with a cute “Noel” ornament from Michael’s at $1.50. That was the only store I hit up for black Friday! Ha 🙂
I threw in one of my handmade pedestal frames and sprayed these two deer (from Michael’s). They were silver from a few years back.
