I am loving this wreath from cb2.…it is a wonderful holiday display but I think I want this one up year round!
The supplies you will need: 3″ nails, string, hammer, bubble balls, a combinations of 4″ & 6″
1. Measure to find the center of the wall area—or MDF board—intended to display the wreath. Connect that point to a pencil and draw a perfect circle.
2. Roughly following the circle, positioning nails slightly inside and outside the circle, hammer in nails at least 1/2”.
3. Check position by temporarily placing a few bubble balls on the nails for a visual.
4. Complete nailing and place bubble balls as desired—starting with large ones first and fill in with smaller ones.
Lets create! Happy Friday! xo
While traveling all over Spain I discovered a wonderful hot boost called a ‘Mocha Valencia’. I decided to recreate it at home and it is very yummy. Starbucks used to have this on their menu but it was very sweet and they used chocolate and orange syrup. My hubby loved it but I prefer my cafe unsweetened. In Spain, it was more of a latte or cappuccino and just topped with a hint of both. Make a cappuccino with a lot of foam. Sprinkle with Cocoa powder and grate orange peel over the top. Stir and Enjoy!
Great way to start the day! xo
My fall pumpkins are still perfectly intact and I hate to just throw them out so I am recycling them into the festive December month. With a beautiful coat of iridescent bronze paint, I can turn these into an elegant addition to my Christmas decorations. I used Golden Iridescent Bronze (Fine) acrylics. It took me a few minutes to just brush one coat on and let dry. I love how it shimmers on a table with the flickering light from the candles.
Time to get FESTIVE. xo
Projects that are practically free and beautiful are the ones that intrigue me. Here is such a unique design for bringing the outdoors in. To follow exact instructions, ‘Cleverly Inspired’ blog will set you up. I think you could hang this as a piece of winter art and even embellish it with holiday decorations for the holidays.
Tis the season for tapping in to your creative juices! xo
Painted Glass Votives
Painting glass votives is a clever way to add color to your holiday table. Follow the easy instructions below. You can find Liquid Fill Glass Paint, by Martha Stewart Crafts, in Monarch Orange, Red Coral, and Thai Hibiscus for $3. at Michaels.
Tape off the top outer edge of a clear glass with masking tape. Starting at the top and working downward, squeeze a thin coat of glass paint over entire surface. Paint drips evenly down sides while drying. To dry, snip an inch off a paper-towel roll, and set the bottom of the glass on top of it, so paint doesn’t accumulate along the base. Let paint cure according to manufacturer’s instructions. Visit marthastewart.com for wonderful Thanksgiving Day tips and ideas.
Let the Holidays begin! I like to decorate for one special day at a time and here is a creative DIY project that would add that Thanksgiving touch to your table. Step by step instructions and free printables at the very creative Creature Comforts blog. So pretty! I really like adding the glitter at the top of the luminaries for a little extra bling. Bring on the Celebration!
Thankful is a wonderful way to start everyday! xo
