DIY Branch Ornament Tree

Today I want to share with you the branch ornament tree we put together for the store's Christmas Open House. It's a festive and inexpensive way to add a lot of drama on the buffet in your dining room or on a foyer entry table, but really this tree could go anywhere in your home.   

Gather up branches from your yard (or the woods) to fill an urn, planter, or tall container. Then hang 10 or more Christmas ornaments on the branches until you have the look you desire. 

The mercury glass acorn ornaments I used actually came from Walmart last season. I just love the way they reflect and shimmer in the light. So simple and elegant!

Thanks for stopping by!

Glittered Trophies

I love coming up with creative uses for inexpensive finds. You know I just can't leave it 
"as is". So while browsing Target about a month ago I saw these ceramic trophies on clearance and knew they could be so much more. 

I bought gold glitter and spray adhesive and made a HUGE mess while trying to adhere the glitter to the trophies, but I'm so happy with how they turned out! They are displayed at the store with sheet music bundles and a wrapped gift. 

We are having Christmas Open House at the store tomorrow, so stay tuned for more Christmas projects that I made for the event. 


DIY Sheet Music Pinwheel Banner

With Thanksgiving quickly approaching I thought I'd make a simple and festival banner out of vintage sheet music, letters, twine and clothespins for the store. This project cost nothing to make since I already had all of the materials on hand. Here is where I first saw this creative idea and just had to make my own.

ONE- Gather up your sheet music, old hymn books or vintage book pages. My favorite books to use usually have an old patina and can be found at estate sales. I just like how they look, but really, any book will do. You will need 2 sheets per pinwheel. 

TWO- Fan fold your pages. There can be as little or as many folds as you want, depending on how tight you want your pinwheel folds. This is something you will have to play around with until you get the look you like.

THREE- Fold each of your fans in half and staple or glue both of them on the fold. 

FOUR- Glue both of the halves together. You kind of just have to play with it until it looks and lays right.

Once dry, print off your letters onto card stock or plain paper and secure it to the center of your pinwheel.

There are so many different "sayings" you can make with these pinwheel banners!
