Holiday Highlights #3

Welcome to the 3rd DIY Show Off Holiday Highlights party!

Link up your holiday projects, decor or check out the links for great ideas & inspiration!

I decorated my Christmas tree tonight! In yesterday’s post (here), I shared how I gave my tree some height and covered the ugly tree stand. Today, I swapped out the tablecloth for a burlap cover (using the round tablecloth as a pattern and sewing 2 half circles together). I love it! Here it is with the burlap “root ball” look that I was going for.

This is our main Christmas tree in the livingroom which is a little more formal at the moment. I love the glow and could sit and enjoy a Christmas tree for hours, listening to Christmas music. (Pictures make the ornaments and decorations look pink, but they’re actually pretty shades of gold.)

You know how much I love mercury glass. Using the technique I shared on my pumpkins, Jodi made these pretty vases and ornaments. Great job, Jodi! I’m definitely going to do some too!

HERE are the painting instructions. But, for the ornaments, Jodi put on a rubber glove, removed the hanging neck piece, held it by the neck and sprayed. Then she put a screwdriver in the hole used clamps to hold the screwdriver.
