JOY ~ Chargers Hung With Ribbon

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas up in here!  I’ve definitely been bitten by the Christmas bug…much to Matt’s dismay.  I am trying to start small, especially since he refuses to get my decorations out of the attic until next week…silly man.  Doesn’t he realize I’ll just make more?  Bahahahaha!  I had already made the Glitter In Glass Ornaments, so I decided to start decorating my breakfast nook.  So, over the weekend, I was shopping at Michael’s and I saw these fabulous plastic chargers…in aqua.  Well, I just had to buy them, right?  Not only were they aqua, they were also $1.50.  I got them home and thought hmmmm…what shall I do with them.  And then it hit me…sting em’ up with ribbon and say something…I chose joy…
I grabbed up some Mod Podge (the sparkle formula), some glitter, and a foam brush.
I started by painting the letter j with Mod Podge and sprinkling with glitter.  I had to see if it would work…I wanted the look of sparkly snow.
Once I got the desired effect, I continued on with the o and the y.
Once they were nice and dry, I flipped the plates over and proceeded to hot glue the ribbon onto the backs of the chargers.
I just lined them up and glued the ribbon vertically.  Once the glue was dry, I simply flipped them over and hung them in between two windows in my breakfast nook.
Joy to you and all of yours this holiday season…have you started decorating yet?

    So pretty and I love that you added glitter. I also love the pops of turquoise. I don’t even have to ask if I can pin this as you already have the button ready for me, lol! So I’m pinning it!
