Bonjour Mes Amis!
I guess you could say that my theme for this year's Christmas decorating is
While I originally was planning to decorate simply for Christmas, I somehow found myself knee deep in holiday decor! I kept spotting so many wonderful ideas and projects on everyone's blogs, as well as Pinterest, that I just couldn't help myself:)
So today I am sharing with your our Christmas tree, that is decorated with all things silvery, creamy, glittery, and Frenchy,
Many of the ornaments I have made, and many were gifts given to me by special friends.
I actually laid down on the floor to get this shot! The triangle of lights you see above the tree is actually the icicle lights that hubby put outside, outlining our roof!
I made over a dozen of these glittered pincones. I had nearly forgotten that we'd collected them this past winter, when we were in Georgia. They are really big!
I coated the tips, both top and undersides, in fine silver glitter by Martha Stewart. A fun project, but boy was it messy, not to mention a bit labor intensive!
I screwed eye hooks in the base of each pinecone so that I could thread a sheer ribbon thru for hanging.
Lots of glittery goodness!
German glass glitter angel
Large tussie mussie that I made several years ago, and a pretty vintage inspired angel tag ornament.
Oooh, la, la!
Oooh, la, la!
Parisian postcard ornaments that I made several years ago.
I snapped all of these shots during the day. I have some night time views coming up.
Ok, I snapped these shots tonight.
Faux mercury glass ornament that I just made today. It is actually a clear plastic ornament, which I spray painted silver on the inside. First I poured a few drops of water inside the ornament, and sprinkled some fine silver glitter inside. Then swirled it and the paint all around. A vintage image of the Madonna and child was decoupaged to the front, and I just had to add a bit more glitter!
Glitter makes me happy!
One of my French angel ornaments I showed you last week.
I am so happy the way the pinecones turned out, they look just magical shimmering in the light!
Leaded glass Eiffel Tower ornament.
Katie even has her own ornament:)
And what do we have here???????????
One last look. I was really hoping for a nice fat tree, but we ended up with another tall and skinny one,
it's about 11 feet tall!
I added a vintage white crocheted tablecloth as a tree skirt.
Thanks for joining me on the glittery tour!
