Goodday everyone. Are you ready? Want to see what else I came up with in this series of Christmas decorating?
Okay then. Welcome to day 7 of 12 Days of Christmas Decorating.
Today window sill decorations for Christmas are on the menu.
Ever since I did my double layered Roman blinds I love decorating our window sill in the bay window in the living room. Now that I no longer need to take curtains into consideration I can really use that space as an extra decorating surface.
This is what I came up with:
Pretty white flowers with a little extra.
I painted three very old terra-cotta window containers white and filled them up with the whitest cyclamen flowers that I could find. That in itself looked good, but I decided to go the extra mile and add a little something something.
Since stars seem to be the theme of this series, I decided some extra stars might just be the perfect addition.
The stars were an easy little craft project I pulled together as a plan E. I had something totally different in mind but even after searching for months I couldn’t find the proper material and than plan B, C and D totally failed. So in the end I just went with the general idea of adding a little something something to these window boxes and made something I could whip up in an evening.
I found these little magical wands in the dollar store in the kids section, they are party favors, along with the glittered star cocktail picks. With glitter and rhinestones these could easily be made from scratch but I was low on time and these were dirt cheap.
From cardboard I cut the biggest size stars and outlined them with a sharpie. Then it was just a matter of glueing them all together.
I used paper straws for the stems.
I really think those stars add just enough of that bit extra to take these humble window sill containers to the next level. And to christmasify them a bit more.
Next up was add lights. I added some snowflake/star LED lights (found at Ikea last year). The white LED light actually looks very pretty with the bright white of the flowers. They accentuate each other.
Todays project surely is a simple one, but I hope you liked it.
And I am absolutely sure you will like the projects of my fellow bloggers in this series. And don’t forget we all have giveaways going that stay open until Sunday next week (if you missed it you can find my giveaway for $150 worth of milk paint products of your choice here).
