Just some projects from this season. Everything is made from recycled or broken things. Comments, questions, or advice about stuff is welcomed. If anyone wants details on how to make something I'll post a tutorial on how-to.  Smiley Enjoy!

First Vintage Light Bulb Wreath Inspiration came from this http://thompsonfamily.typepad.com/thompson_familylife/2011/12/55-days-of-vintage-christmas-our-holiday-home-peek-2.html
Far Away shot:

Now for the Snowflakes, before they were an off cream color that didn't match the room. Glitter can change anything!

Next are the Light Bulb Magnets: (if you don't like glitter you could always paint them, cover them in yarn/ribbon/twine, anything really)

Another Fringe Tree,(with glitter tips) link on how to make them is here  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=330034.0

New cute bows for trees

Candy Covered Letters Group then detail shots

That's all! Thanks for looking. If you have an advice or comments/questions feel free to ask!  Smiley

The candy colours on those light bulbs are scrumptious.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

I love the lightbulb wreath!

love the light bulb wreath, any tips on adding the glitter?

Thanks everyone for the nice comments! To apply the glitter all I did was apply a thin coat of glue and then sprinkled it on. It was a pretty easy process.
