This was so simple and cost me nothing but the ribbon
which I bought at Michael's for another project!

I'm pretty excited about this, because I truly think it
turned out exactly the way I wanted it to!

I've had this old twig strand of hearts and bows for years...literally!
It's hung on our garage face in the old house, I've had it
hanging in the house at times...and most recently for the last 2-1/2 years...
it's been crammed in my old trunk in our bedroom.

She's a beauty, isn't she?
I didn't really know what I was going to do when I got this out
to the garage...just a vague idea in my mind.
But, I did know I still wanted the brown twiggy wood to show through in parts.
I just spraypainted (fun!) the bows gold and the hearts I sprayblotched
with ivory...touched it up here and there,
and stapled some sparkly gold wire ribbon to the back!
This is the absolute earliest I've EVER started decorating for Christmas!
I can't believe what this blogging venture is doing to me!
But...I'm having a blast!

(even funnier....I couldn't wait 'til Monday to post this! It had to go in TODAY!!  Hahaha!)

It looks lovely! Amazing what a difference something so simple as adding a ribbon can make.

And we set a personal record for early decorating this weekend, too!

Ah this is cute...good job mom! I started decorating for Christmas too haha, I hung a little red and silver wreath of bells on my doorknob...I really want to get a little tree too, but Tobias says it's too early :P

Don't you just love making over something you've had for awhile and giving it new life? I'm sure you will enjoy it for many more years to come. I'm with ya on the Christmas decorating, too. So many ideas, so little time. I'm getting started early too! Thanks for sharing at Sunday's Best

You know what Wendy? Secretly I've working on some ornamnets for Christmas too!!! And this is gorgeous. You planning on any theme? Or just the way the heart takes you?

Thanks everyone for the nice comments! And, I am working on a theme...which you'll see shortly as I make each project that will be combined at my front door!

It really is cute, hearts and bows and ribbon, what a great combination! Don't you just love re-purposing, especially when it looks better than the original. I started my Christmas making this week. Maybe this season I will be a head of the game. Thanks so much for sharing at Sunday's Best.
