Hi everyone! Did you brave the Black Friday crowds or did you stay in like me? I never go out on BF. It's just not worth it to me. But I have several friends who live for this day! My daughter and I enjoyed a day of crafting, art making, movie watching & eating (my Husband unfortunately had to work since he's in retail). Plus, I took down all my fall decorations so I can start Christmas Decorating!! I LOvE decorating for Christmas. I love thinking of new ways of using what I have and it's fun to see what I bought at the end of the season last year (cause you know I don't remember)!
I worked on some more trees. I made another colorful one for my living room. Isn't that red and white polka dot rick rack just the cutest!
I also worked on some trees for my dining room which I decided would only be white, silver or glittery ones. Since last year I did a shiny shimmery Christmas I thought the dining room would be perfect to rework those decorations. Black and silver - white and silver - love those together!
This little silver bottle brush tree below is one I picked up at Target for $4.99! They don't even have them on display at my Target. They're in boxes on the top shelf above the cute cute Christmas Cottages they have this year (they light up and look like vintage glitter houses). Those are definately on my end of season sale list for this year!
I added the silver ornaments, the sparkly topper and the silver bead garland to this white one.
This sparkly silver one is a bleached bottle brush tree that I sprayed with spray adhesive and then dumped a whole lot of Martha Stewart silver glittler on. I also added some silver ornamaents.
Here they all are together. I'm not keeping them here though. They're going on top of my little black china cabinet in the dining room.
A few more pictures just because I think they look so pretty!
Be sure to check back Tuesday for the December Book Giveaway! Also Friday, December 4th is the Cloche Party hosted by Marty at A Stroll Thru Life. I'm really not that good with cloches (or wreaths) but I've challenged myself to come up with something creative. Hopefully I will! Have a great weekend!
I love it when people are inspired by a project or a post I've done. That's why I post them! You're always welcome to copy any idea I've shown. I'd love to be able to see what your version looks like. So let me know if you do and I'll come by to have a look!
Please ask permission before copying photos to post on your blog. 99% of the time I say yes. Thanks in advance for that courtesy.
