I made these using the styrofoam balls I used for my Spooky Eyes at Halloween. I had two different sizes- large and small.
First, I painted over the sharpie marker I used to make the eyes. Then, I covered them in glue. I used regular old school glue. Then, I rolled them around in this stuff called frosty snow AKA buffalo snow. It is simply tiny bits of cellophane.
I let them dry for a bit then filled this container with them and lots of the leftover snow. These would look good in a bucket, as vase filler or attaching a string to use as ornaments.
The next thing was that I made two book page Christmas trees. I used foam cones and cut old dictionary pages into pieces and glued all over the cones.
Seriously simple but I love the way they look.
I sat them on old, chippy white candlesticks along with this little birdie.
I snipped a few branches from an evergreen tree in my backyard. I love decorating with natural items as much as possible.
For a backdrop, I used this white frame. This white frame somehow finds its way into almost all of my decor!
I hung a little acrylic bird decoration that I decoupaged with bookpages on a piece of baker’s twine.
I love the neutral colors of this vignette and will probably keep most of my holiday decor simple this year.
I may add a little miniature bunting or some words like “joy” or “believe” to this vignette but as my printer has been moved from my home to our shop right now that will have to wait.
After not being able to do much of anything for so long, it is so nice to get a chance to be creative!
