Hey Y’all! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We had a great time! It came and went way too fast for me though. So, now it’s on to serious Christmas decorating, and I have been busy! I bought a new tree for our Master Bedroom, and decided to go with a flocked tree. I’ve never had one, and I just love it. I wanted to use turquoise, white, and gold ornaments. I already had the white and gold ornaments, and I bought a bucket of turquoise ornaments for $4.00! I just didn’t like the look, because everything on the tree was too sparkly, and shiny. So, I took all of the plain turquoise ornaments off, and went to work changing them. I had a can of Krylon Looking Glass spray paint that I was going to use for something else, and decided to give it a try. These were cheap plastic ornaments, so I wasn’t sure how this would work.
It worked great. It took the shine down, and made the ornaments look like old mercury glass ornaments. Just the look I wanted! Using the egg crate was the way to go. You can paint several at one time, and you can get to all of the sides.
You can see the gray mottling on the turquoise.
I didn’t cover all of the ornament with the spray paint, because I liked the gradual aged look. Now, my tree fits my decor much better. I little new and shiny, and a little old and shabby.
I used Soft White Lights, and I love how they look. Kind of blue, and kind of white.
I also put up my Living Room tree
I used all of our ornaments that we have collected through the years, and this year I used burlap ribbon on the top, and throughout the tree. Then, I added red poinsettias for a pop of Christmas color.
I love this little elf who is helping me decorate the tree!
Next, I put up my kitchen tree. I put it behind my sink, instead of having a larger tree taking up floor space.
I went with a bakery theme. Cupcakes, and frosted cookies. Aren’t the cupcakes adorable?
Well, that’s all of the trees I have up so far! Stay tuned, and I will have much more to post. We moved outside today, and hung lights, and decorated. Can’t wait to share the rest with you.
