Silver Bells

December 10, 2011

I am totally into sparkling silver this Christmas.  I went for a walk with my kids last weekend and my daughter found some branches.  Then we headed to the store for some spray paint.

I first sprayed it with silver, let it dry for a few and then gave it a coat or two (or three) of sparkles (I love sparkles).  I found a flower vase buried in one of the cabinets, gave it a couple of coats of some sparkles as well and…….

…..wrapped a ribbon around it (I love Christmas ribbons).

My parents gave me this beautiful fabric for Holliday curtains:

The sewing job is very plain, nothing fancy or complicated going on there.  But to give a little more flair I glued pine cones and bells onto an old fashioned wooden clothing pin and attached it to the bottom of the curtains.   I like it.

I gave the pine cones the same treatment as the branches, some silver and sparkles (thought they don’t show well on this photo).

We put up the tree as planned last Monday.  My little guy loved doing his share, he did a great job:

I love how all little kids I have known always find a couple of branches and hang everything they can find on  just those (I always leave it just like that).

I have been knitting my days away, but have nothing to show right now………it’s getting there though!

    Beautiful! Great ideas 🙂
    You’re right, the branch thing is one of those strange yet wonderful universal parts of childhood. So sweet to watch.

    Mikið eru greinarnar fallegar og gardínurnar vel heppnaðar… ég sé fyrir mér, að það mætti búa tli einfaldan krans úr svona spreyjuðum greinum? Og setja svona fallega köngla og jólaslaufur á hann?
    Jólatré skreytt af börnum eru fallegustu jólatréin!!

      Alveg sammála Kristín, hafði hugsað mér að það væri flott að finna þunnar langar greinar og vefja þeim í hring og gera krans, væri geggjað!
