Hello my friends and Merry Christmas to all of you celebrating this wonderful holiday!
I thought I would share with you what I do in my bedroom for Christmas. The theme for the room is Angels.
I found some great metal angel wings at a local store nearby, and have moved my architectural salvage angel from my studio into the bedroom for the season.
The angel wings were all rusted and really quite wonderful, but the deep rust color just did not look good above the bed, so out came my paints and a sponge!!!
I think if I leave them outside for a little while after I am finished with them for the season, some more of the natural rust will come through the paint and then I will seal them up!!
I found this sweet and very real looking tree and it's container at IKEA!!
On top of my tall dresser sits some of the bottle angels I made last year
and a new hanging angel I made this year.
She is made out of cardstock and crepe paper.
The angel on the box, was made from a old gold and amber glass box that was given to me by my mom. I'll try and find the before shots and show that to you in a future post.
On the long dresser below the garland sits more of my bottle angels.
The garland is wrapped in a wonderful burlap and lace ribbon that I found at Hobby Lobby, and the believe ornaments were purchased at the last Sweet Salvage sale.
I printed out some lovely angel pics and glued them to heavy cardstock, cut out the star shape and added platinum Stickles to the outer edge.
My bedroom office also got a bit of Christmas cheer. Like the bedroom side, a wreath hangs in the window.
My mannequin definitely got a promotion by becoming an angel herself. I just went into a party store and found a pair of costume wings. Two simple staples in the back (that sounds painful!) and she became angelic. I like it so much, I will probably leave her that way year round!!
Well, that's my bedroom for the holiday! I'll see you all soon, and again, Merry Christmas!
