The ornaments on this year's tree are a mix of store bought and handmade: the black globes with silver snowflakes were a fun find from a vintage shop in Dover, New Hampshire. The silhouette frames were found at a discount shop, and I printed out the black silhouettes myself from clip art and fit them inside. The needlepoint stars I made myself, and the wooden star ornament I painted with acrylic red paint and red glitter glue. I also painted several porcelain bulbs with red acrylic and gold acrylic, brushing with red glitter glue to finish . The "PEACE" sign in red gingham was a Michael's Crafts bargain bin find for a $1 and this year's red, black and beige plaid stockings were a Christmas Tree Shop steal at $3 a piece. One boring Friday evening I cut out all the snowflakes that you see on the cabinets a week or two ago. I enjoy mixing DIY projects with purchased decor items.
Happy Holidays from my small space to your home!
