I found this drawer-thing by the curb. I immediately liked it because of the mid-century modern style, dove tail corners and two toned wood grain finish. I knew it needed me to turn it into something.
Nice and clean!
I decided to make it into a coastal Christmas sign of some sort. Most importantly, I also wanted it to reflect the true meaning of Christmas. It's easy to find coastal style Christmas decor and Christian style Christmas decor, separately. Finding them combined is a whole other story.
I first decided which Christmas saying I wanted and then went into Picmonkey and printed it out.
wall mural, plus a turquoise-y color I had as well. I just blended it all with a large brush.
I wanted to add a drift wood Christmas tree topped with a starfish to my beach, The only starfish I owned that was the right size, was this poor little guy, who had already seen a few other craft projects
I glued his two broken arms back on with spackle, painted him white and sprinkled him with glamour dust. Better than new!
I laid out my drift wood pieces and star in the position I liked and then hot glued everything down.
Cost of this project? $0. Enjoyment? Priceless!
This little coastal Christmas angle was originally a wedding gift from 23 years ago! When it was new, it had tiny dried flowers around it's halo. After 23 years, those had since turned brown and mostly fallen off. So I took out some tiny shells and bits of coral and hot glued a new halo on.
I hope you're all having a blessed Christmas Season!
