Love the bulb wreath!Back to my house where December is flying by! I wasn't happy with the results when I first did the Wordy Fireplace this past Fall. I know, call me crazy but it just wasn't quite right and it's bugged me. So over the weekend I redid it. This time instead of hanging the tar paper first, I laid it out on the floor and wrote the words. Much easier. Also, this time I didn't write a quote. I wrote the names of family members, pets, street addresses and numbers.
I am really happy with the results the second time around:
Very fun and very easy. My kids look up and love seeing their names up there. Also I found the big rectangle mirror at Goodwill for $15. I made the bulb wreath over the weekend too. (who needs sleep?) It has a mix of new and vintage bulbs.
- It was super easy to make: Just a floral styrofoam ring, a glue gun and bulbs.
- (tip: if you make one, gather lots of bulbs, then gather more, you'll need 'em.)
Next up is the Nativity.I painted this set a loonnnng time ago; 1989. It's usually the first thing I put out each year. This year I punched it up a bit by hanging the snowflakes above it with fishing line. Just go with it here and pretend they are stars..lol. Husband Paul made the bookcase a few years back and I painted it black this past summer. Totally fab.
