Makeovers part 1

 I finally got around to making over some of my recent Vintage Christmas Finds.  With the temperatures here starting to be in the freezing zone, I have to have a lot more patience when waiting for the paint to dry!  But it was worth the wait when I finally got to add some bling to these candlesticks!
Some white paint, pearls and a few vintage pieces of jewelry make this candlesticks so pretty!  I only made these three for now but I am excited to finish the rest of the ones I have and maybe even find some more!
 I painted the orange bulbs white but will have to find some clear ones since the orange light shines right through.  I didn't make them too Christmasy in hopes of keeping them out year round on my mantle.  I even added some white glitter to the "drips" to really make it shine!
 I still have so many tart tins left over after making these trees and ornaments.  I guess that is a good thing since I have so many more ideas in mind for them.
 I love using vintage sheet music in my crafting and part of the fun is finding different ways to incorporate it into my project.  You can see here how I used it in a couple different ways.
 Clearly I am in to white and silver this year!  Maybe I should add some Christmas colors as well, just to spice things up a little bit.
 I still need to figure out what I am going to use to put on these ornaments for hanging them.  Should I use ribbon, twine or something else that I haven't thought of?  Each little tree is decorated a little differently and they are all tiny and sweet!
I have been having so much fun creating all of these things and I am not done yet!  On December 5th, there is an arts and crafts show at the college I work for that I will be participating in.  It doesn't cost anything to sell your stuff, but 10% of your proceeds go toward a scholarship.  I can get behind that!  So I better stay busy and get as much ready to sell as I can.

Thanksgiving week is finally here and I am so excited!  Not only do I get a 4 day weekend, but I get to spend it with people that I love.  Wishing you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Your creations are all your beautiful, Trisha! I adore the tart tins with the mini trees, how sweet! That craft show sounds perfect for you, best of luck! How about using crinkly seam binding for hangers?

As a bottle brush tree and tart tin fanatic, I love your creations. Love the creamy whites with the silver. What about tinsel ribbon for the tart tins? Good luck with the sale.
