I want to share with you how I decorated for Christmas. This year I have been making ornaments for my two Christmas trees; something that I really enjoy.
I made these paper houses. I found some glitter houses on a website, and my goodness they are expensive. I decided to make my own houses for my mantel. I really like how they turned out. You can find the patterns for paper houses Here
This living-room is a small space; I love it. I made the owl ornaments with blew eggs, then I glued a pair of paper wings and black beads for the eyes.
The Snow balls are made with balloons.I covered the balloons with paper that I had dipped in glue. After the paper dried, I covered it with All-Purpose Compound to give it texture. After the compound dried, I painted it with two-in-one primer paint.
I have a collection of houses that I love. I decided to paint my houses white to give it a frosty look. I just applied acrylic paint with a wet sponge.
This is my second Christmas tree in the family-room. I decided to decorate it with a touch of french air. I made the paper Eiffel towers , top hats, and cones. The cotton string ornaments were fun to make. They are made with balloons, and wrapped with cotton strings. I dampened the wrapped balloon with a sponge dipped in glue. After they dried, I made a small cut in the balloon; that way the air will come out slowly and the glued strings will keep their form.
I want to wish you a happy Christmas, and I would like to thank you for visiting my blog. Blessings always.
