Vintage Christmas Light Ornaments

Back last year we bought some strands of vintage Christmas lights and one strand didn't work so I didn't want to throw away the bulbs so I decided to make glittered ornaments with them.

They started out like this.

I started out by hot gluing twine into a loop around the top then hot gluing twine around the top. like the picture below

Then after that I added modge podge to the bulb and used silver glitter all over it. I let it dry overnight then added modge podge over the top of the glitter. Tip: adding modge podge over the top of the glitter keeps its from getting everywhere and doesn't come off.

I think they make great Christmas ornaments.

Cane Back Chair

One of my favorite chairs is the french cane back chairs! They are classy, can be farmhouse french. They can go with so many styles. One of my favorite combos is the Cane back chairs with the antique grain sacks! I have one chair just waiting for me to refinish for myself but I just cant bring myself to pay a lot of money for a grain sack I am going to cut! Maybe that is what ill ask for Christmas!

Few weeks ago I started to work on one for the booth that I have at an Antique Flea Mall. It was dusty and just dirty this is how it looked before!

And here is after I worked my magic on it!

I painted the chair in Country Chic Paint in the color called cheese cake, lightly distressed the chair then waxed it. i reupholstered the seat in burlap. I love the combination of the two together!

In a week or so I will start adding blog post of some  handmade Christmas ornaments!
