This week for Metamorphosis Monday thought I would
back track a bit.
When decorating for Christmas I like to make alot of my ornaments, especially
if I can buy what I want or if I think they are to expensive.
This year I wanted to do an Asian tree.
I had many ornaments stashed away that I had bought at after Christmas sales etc. but needed a few more.
So I bought these plain little red ball ornaments and strung them with black ribbon.
I like ribbon with ornaments, gives them a classier or more finished look sometimes.
Then I found the Chinese symbols for Peace and Love on the Internet.
I used a permanent felt marker and did those symbols on the ornaments.
I really loved the Asian tree this year in the dining room, was one of my favs this year!
Another Before and After...
I also will repurpose things found at the thrift store into Christmas items.
For our bedroom tree I found 3 bags full of clear acrylic prisms that I strung with shear brownish ribbon and I hung them all on our master bedroom tree for some sparkle.
Also found this cute Santos looking gal at the thrift store for like $2 ( forgot to take a before of her), she had berries or something on her metal cage bottom etc.
I took those all off and found these tiny feather angel wings at Pier 1 and fashioned them on her.
She made for a good Angel at the top of our master bedroom tree.

And for a future Met Monday post, these cute metal chairs and table base
I found while out junk hunting this weekend.
They were going to be for a resale in our mall space but they are growing on
me. I might sell what I have now in our kitchen and keep these and redo
