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?
