Awesome! Cause I’ve got another round for you!
I wasn’t going to share pictures of my faux-mantle/buffet until the end of this, big reveal and all that… But I love it so much I can’t wait to share! It features several projects I’ll be sharing this week including today’s.Be Warned! Really Picture Heavy!
Make pompoms out of white yarn. I used the pom-pom makers from clover to make mine. I used three different sizes, adds to the snowy appearance.Sew or glue the pom-poms to silver ribbon. Make a loop at the top of the ribbon. Use the loop to hang from the curtain rods by an ornament hook.To keep the garlands hanging on the shelf I safety pinned them to a strip of felt and put the felt on the shelf. The ones hanging off the sides kept the whole thing from flying off the shelf.
When you have an orange wall it’s easy to decorate for Halloween. Christmas? We’ll see.
The right side. I got the candle sticks for $1 (for all 3!). I hate the color but it’s low on the list of crap to do at this point. The milk glass dishes both came from garage sales as well as the silver dish.
The plate in the center is a white turkey that came from a garage sale for a dollar (see a pattern here?). Any one else notice my cat slinking in to all these pictures?
The house where I grew up had an amazing huge fireplace with stone mantle. I miss it. The only thing I really don’t like about my house is the lack of fireplace (and the color of the bathroom but I can easily change that). The shelf was $25-ish at Lowes. This part of the display was more costly than the buffet part.
This is blurry but it shows the color of the wall better. I really like the shadows from the bat garland.
The lantern on the left is from Michaels. The little turkey dish, his name is Wilfredo, from Joanns. More of my little pumpkins and the Chicken. He doesn’t have a name, any ideas? He came from a garage sale. He was pink. I like this much better, don’t you?
I’m in love with these little crows from Michael’s. My cat loves to stalk them so I can only put them up high. The candle holder is from Pier 1, got in on clearance last year.
This little guy is on the wall next to the buffet. The shelf is from Hobby Lobby, it was $2.50 with chipping black paint. Guess what color it is. Go on. Guess! Yeah, the old stand by Hammered Copper. In another life I was a belly dancer and this is one of my genie lamps. The spiders were a gift from the boy (ain’t love grand?)
Hope you enjoy part 2!
