I know some of you might think it’s a little early for Christmas, this being the day before Halloween. But, if your little ones don’t have a costume by now, no matter what cute idea we could come up with, let’s face it, it’s down to what’s left at the party store now. Your pumpkins are carved, and your treats are bought-and if they’re not you’ll be doing what ever is quick and easy at this point, which totally works for me. Since I’m a Canadian, I don’t have to wait for Thanksgiving, since we had ours weeks ago. In my heart, I’m moving on to Christmas, so here’s an early post to inspire you.
I found this sweet little mini-size teapot at the thrift store yesterday, for $2.99 It’s pretty tarnished and the silver plate is even worn off in some spots I think, but it just had a certain charm that inspired this little project.
Just like you, I’ve been noticing lots of copper around lately. It’s inspiring me to do a mixed metals Christmas this year pretty copper, gold, silver and brass. I thought it’d be fun to add a little copper nest like effect to the bottom of the Christmas tree. I used a copper pot scrubber from the dollar store.
I also added a few Christmas balls and beads that I glittered to the little tree.
I hot glued the bobbles onto a little white bottle brush tree from the dollar store, unravelled the copper pot scrubber, then tucked the strands around the wee tree, and popped it in my little teapot. So simple, so pretty.
I put the pretty little teapot on a tree round with a candle and a pinecone for a sweet little Christmas vignette.
With a sweet start like this to Christmas, life really is a party!
