Upcycled Holiday Decor

I am giddy when it comes to holiday decorating!

I can't wait for the Halloween orange to be done in all the stores and 
replaced with the little white twinkling lights-

Over the years, my Christmas Decor has evolved-  gone are the days of the 
Boyd's Bears dressed in matching plaid vests-

I love mixing it up with vintage and Upcycled items and we all know where my favorite place to go for supplies.....The Goodwill "Boutique"!

Lamp bases are my go to these days- from a topiary to a table arrangement-
 the unexpected treasures I find thrill me beyond words-

Candlesticks, styrofoam and a glue gun are my tools to create the perfect piece of holiday splendor-

This stand was found in a store named "Junk", so of course, I had to snatch it up!  The owner asked me what I was using it for and I replied, "Christmas decor"!  He gave me a strange look and then laughed!




My intention was to shabby it up with some chalk paint but then decided "au naturel" was the was to go.
I looked around my garage for the perfect accessory-
Grapevine seemed a natural solution and I happened to have a large roll left-







Topped it off with a "found" doorknob and some sparky star lights-

Adds a bit of rustic charm to any space!

Take care, gotta fly-
