Repurposed Silver Bells!
I bet you see these mini molds at thrift stores all the time. I know I do--so I decided to make silver bells, silver bells.. Earlier this fall, I was inspired to use larger copper molds for a repurposed pumpkin patch. When I kept seeing these minis, I thought it would be fun to recreate them for Christmas. I used two slightly different sizes, stacked to give them a bell like appearance and then hot glued them. Last I glued ribbon for hanging and added little jingle bells underneath.…
DIY Oversized Ornaments
To quote Miles Finch from the movie Elf, “I’ve got one idea that I’m especially psyched out of my mind about. Ya’ know, it’s one of those ideas where you’re just like, YES!” This sums up how I feel about today's project!

Christmas Decorating with Scrap Yard Finds
When I spotted a birdcage at the scrap yard some months ago, I didn’t want to show my excitement but I was surely thrilled. Sometimes the business owners put a firm price on certain items but the birdcage was sold for the scrap value at about 1.50$. It’s perfect for seasonal decorations. For Christmas I just put some baubles and other decorative pieces inside and a silver birdie on top. Now we turn to another of my multiple Christmas personalities, lol. I do love the rather girlie birdcage…

I cut them off and glued them onto a background that dear hubby had hammered from pallet wood together for me. Usually I don’t like gold very much but I adore these beautiful embossed…
