Hi Everyone! Hope all your Christmas planning and shopping and baking and all that fun, busy stuff is almost finished! I just realized I never showed you how I used the things I worked on in the fall for my Christmas decorating. Almost every area where I decorated had crafty Christmas items. Here we go!
Remember I showed you how I painted my colored Christmas houses white?
Here is how I used them:

I also decorated my dining room China cabinet. It's what you see from the front door.
Follow this link on how I painted my hydrangeas.
Here is how I put together my display of red and green hydrangeas. They flopped initially, then I used tape to create a grid to help them stay more upright.
And last but not least, here is my tree.
I used silver painted hydrangeas to fill in the tree.
Hope you enjoyed my tour of how I used my items that I recycled and repurposed. It was a crafty Christmas! I enjoy looking at them knowing I reused things and that I made something pretty. Everything was easy to do so go ahead and try!
