DYI Holiday Decorating
Love getting creative for the holidays! If you think it, you can make it.
A little hard work grooming the forest floor.
Sometimes you can’t always get what you want – I love the look of birch trees so I needed to transform the brown branches into beautiful white birch tree limbs. A spray of white paint, a light brush of champagne metallic modern masters paint and a quick swipe of blackened bronze modern masters paint, just on the knots of the branches for depth…
Knit decorations are warm, fun, colourful and give a vintage vibe. Styrofoam balls wrapped in wool yarn, then hot glued to secure the ends can be hung from the ceiling or in your tree. I learned how to finger knit in 2 minutes watching you tube and used the mini scarfs to bundle the faux birch trees together.
Finishing the look with an adorable fuzzy snow owl from The Cross.
