My little helper!

Repurposing what you have to decorate for the Holidays!  I stenciled JOY on the galvanized bucket and then took a vintage pop bottle and put a tree branch in it.  Well of course, I needed something to hold the pop bottle up and I just happened to have washed rocks that I used for my daughter's wedding decorations.  Then added a few sparkly snowflakes and there it is, a beautiful Christmas table decoration.

The divided round strainer/steamer is a perfect addition to the grouping-like how you added the ornaments. ~judi ;) Posted: 9:59 am on December 3rd
