Some CRAFTY Christmas Decorating.....

I got the vintage screen door at a garage sale for $5.00!
The white board to the right is for homeschooling purposes....just being real, can't have it looking all pretty with no practical....lol.
I inherited the vintage baubles and made them into a wreath last year.
I entered it into the county fair and got 3rd...I thought it got a bad ribbon...because 3rd place is WHITE...this was pink or yellow...it wasn't white!


They aren't ALL vintage baubles....didn't have enough.


I saw this idea on another blog....yep, those are the Dollar Tree boxes....
Total cost = $3.00 only because they came in 3 different packages...but there are
also 3 other boxes you do NOT see here. So, really it was $1.50.
I still have to do some tweaking w/ this wall.....

I made this FUR wreath last year....found the vintage tiny birds for $.50!
This is a pretty version of the movie THE BIRDS....lol.



I got the frame for $1.00 at a garage sale...used chalkboard paint and chalk ink to make the sign.

I got the vintage tree last year after Christmas....$8.00.
I THINK it might be to hold Christmas cards, but they don't look right on it....
soooooo....I got out the white garland....and started wrapping.

Here is it finished with just the garland.....


I added TWINKLE lights...vintage of course. I also call them fairy lights because they have the little flowers on them. Unfortunately, they don't flash at the same time....they do it in SECTIONS....there is no method to the madness...I refused to take them off this year...but will certainly do different lights next year.
I added vintage baubles that I've acquired from garage/estate sales over the summer.




Here is the final display....until I decide to change something....I might add a vintage tablecloth....
Ignore the shutters to the sides....those aren't supposed to be there.

Traci...what wonderful decorations..and I am so jealous of your screen door, I have searched high and low for a vintage door like this, and so far, no luck...I want one to put on my laundry room door, so I can put my pups in there if need be.....plus....it is so darn cute @Q@
Have a great day!
