All That Glitters is Gold
Today I took advantage of the unseasonably warm 60 degree Michigan weather and I decked the halls on our front porch. Here is a sneak peek at our festive entrance:
I purchased simple greens marked 70% off yesterday from Michael's and added a few inexpensive store bought sparkly add ons. However, I spray painted pine cones from our yard with metallic gold paint and sprinkled them with glitter while the paint was still wet. I incorporated a few colorful metallic ball ornaments from my collection and they added instant color for free! The bows are the reddish orange cheap ones (you know the ones) they fade quickly. They were given to me a few years ago and I kept them in the basement until now. Guess what?! I spray painted them with rust-oleum's satin claret wine spray paint and they came out beautifully!
Finally to sparkle up the night, I bought 2 strands of lights at Target. For around $30.00 our entrance looks warm, welcoming and festive.
