5 handmade ornaments

Happy Friday! So glad for the weekend. I might sleep in a little past eight-thirty, with some luck though I doubt I will. Call me a workaholic, but Im too excited for the projects on my plate right now.. my  next tablescape for Bright.Bazaar, handmade gifts and ornaments, a friend’s party decor, a holiday party, and decorating my own apartment…. its going to be a fun fun weekend.

I gold-leafed the tips a pair of paper mache antlers last night and love how they turned out. Not sure where they go just yet but for now one sits here.

 (kind of a blurry pic, sorry) The other branches on this rescued branch are waiting for me to finish making ornaments.

While on the subject of making ornaments – I came across these adorable DIY ornament ideas and thought you might like to see.

Fill a glass ornament with holiday music sheets cut into thin strips.

Everyone loves glitter especially during the holidays, right? Yes, so give your old ornaments a new life with glitter. I love the polka dotted one.

oh happy day has a fun how-to on these painted ornaments

I doubt these gingerbread cookie ornaments would last ten minutes with Dex in my home but cute to give as gifts or for those without greedy lab puppies in their house.

love how creative one can get with this easy-to-do ornament. Sharpie + spray paint = modern ornament.

Im off to do some ornament DIY-ing of my own.

Happy weekend crafting!


thanksgiving tabletop decor

I love decorating for the holiday season and playing with table setting decorations is one of my fav part.

So, here’s a peek into one of my handmade table decor ideas for Thanksgiving. I got this rust/ gold print fabric by Marimekko a while back and have been eager to use it since. Im using the fabric as the tablecloth and napkins. I was lucky enough to find a matching fabric that I will make placemats out of. I am still working on the details and the full table setting. I have lots to do including some sewing {yes, you read correct, I said sew} to do. Which means a busy but fun weekend ahead..
