I applied spray adhesive and sprinkled on Martha Stewart Snow Glitter, that didn't work too well. I don't know what might work better. Then hot glued some pearl bobbles in place.
One tree is sitting in a little silver cup that I bought at a White Elephant table for .25. It polished up very nicely. The other tree is sitting in fake snow in a thrift store crystal glass.
What have you been crafting lately?

My Dad's idea was to put the Snow Owl on the fireplace. My DH bought me the owl last year for Christmas. He is certainly unique. (The owl, that is, not my DH)
The vintage silver coaster idea came from a dear blogging friend, Janis at Junk Dreams. She has the BEST ideas ever. I thought of making the JOY banner after I saw Janis' BOO banner in the fall. Looks like 'Great minds think alike'.
It is easy to make silvery Christmas balls. I bought old glass ones at the local thrift shop, soaked them is dish soap and warm water, then scrubbed off the colour. They are mostly silver underneath.

This is my favorite one. I am on the lookout now for some vintage books, white of course.

I thought I would change the look of my blog for the holiday season. I have spent hours working on it, my the time goes so quickly. Anyway, with the help of Cute n Cool Blog Stuff , Picnik , and Big Huge Labs this is what I came up with. If I get some more time, I think I will play around with it some more. Happy White Wednesday, everyone!
