Merry Christmas! Woo Hoo! I hope everyone is having a great Christmas. If you’ve been following my Ornament Adventure 2007, I promised to show the final results, so here the are!This year, I was dreaming of a muted mid-century modern Christmas.
In the past, my decor has always been more of a silver, pop-y, bright and cheery flavor, but this year, something
snapped changed, and I decided to go for “the gold” and switch it all up! Actually I think it all started with my branch experiment, (ie. the spray paint bandits)- So, a trip to the craft store, spray painted ornaments, yarn wrapped styrofoam, and some wood balls and I had a whole new look! Although, I must confess, I think the pieces that really made the tree are some store bought ones. I got the gold starbursts from the local floral supply store, and the mosaic garland was from Crate&Barrel. I also added those great mini-chair ornaments from West Elm I freaked out about a few months back. Oh, and the base (vase) of the tree is from West Elm too. For the rest of the decor, I spray painted my old silver topper, and placed it in a plain glass cylinder with some leftover yarn wrapped on the bottom. I had the mosaic hurricane from last year and it worked out great The carved out smaller white votive holder is from Pier 1, and the sea urchins just sorta found themselves there.For my wrapping, I used up the rest of the yarn, and just plain butcher paper and kraft paper. But Martha at Kmart also had some paper that looked great too.I just want to thank all of you for supporting Happy Mundane and checking out my mundane musings! I hope everyone has a great, warm and wonderful holiday!
