I've shared how I embedded my artificial tree into a planter pot
and how I decorated it, so I thought I'd show you the rest of my
Even though I stuff ornaments into every empty space on my tree,
I still have quite a few ornaments left.
This year I put them in big glass jars on the mantel so I can still enjoy them.
Most of my vintage ornaments are from thrift shops and yard sales
and some are from my childhood.
I hung a glittered "believe" sign from this jar.
I used glittery mesh fabric along with decorative
silver balls and big silver candlesticks .
Just look at all that vintage-y goodness ;)
My little paper mache deer
rescued from a store dumpster with his garland collar ...
You really can't tell but on this 70 degree day in Florida,
I even lit
and by "lit" I mean I flipped a switch to turn it on
the fireplace for this pic.
The huge clock? I made it.
I used to make and sell 3-4 foot clocks.
I don't really go overboard with Christmas decorations but I
did add a few touches to this side of the room.
This is hanging above my hand painted dresser in the living room.
I wrapped a styrofoam wreath form with a feather boa in this apple green color that I love,
added an animal print ribbon to hang it and another word sign ~ "Joy"
Our stockings are hung...
I made hand painted canvas stockings for me and my boys.
This Rubik's cube design is my oldest son Trevor's stocking.
He's one of those people that can solve a Rubik's cube in seconds.
I didn't draw it out first, just dove right in.
The trick here is using a paint brush that is the same size that you want your squares.
I used a fabric paint in a bottle to make the squiggly's on the stocking cuffs.
This is Max's, my youngest, black and white zebra stocking,
'cause he's all rock and roll like that
Ahhhh then mine...animal print and diamond pattern in my favorite green.
I hope you enjoyed the tour. Merry Christmas!
