My Homemade Christmas Decor

20 November 2009

My husband and I were thinking that our Christmas Tree was lacking something. We wandered around at some department store to look for the right Christmas decor. to make the tree complete. Twigs, twigs, twigs! Silver twigs is our solution to that missing ingredient. But hey, we didn't just buy in an instant. One twig costs P120 each. A piece of thin, plastic twig. I mean, come on!

So, my husband told me, "we'll make our own Christmas Twigs".
With any Spray paint (color of your choice), "real" dried twigs (small branches will do), some glitters, gloves and a protective mask, let's get it on with the Christmas decor making! A paint brush will come in handy too.
Cover your work place with layers of old newspaper. Start spraying per leaf. After spraying, quickly apply the glitters. You can tie all finished twigs with a ribbon of different color, stick it to your tree, or get bigger twigs, then hang Christmas balls.

I first learned about making Christmas decors through my mom. She would also use twigs for our Christmas tree. Twigs she got from our front lawn. This is also a new discovery that my husband is so into it too. Love it!

More to follow and with our Finished Christmas Tree. (Naubusan po kasi ako ng spray paint, akala ko madami pang laman yung can namin dito hehehe!).
