From September to December, Kaye and I have decided to dedicate our BFF Series to the festive spirit of Christmas.
In our home country, the Philippines, Christmas is a 4- to 5-month long celebration which starts in September and being it my favorite season, I am an advocate to keep the spirit alive all year long – except for special days when tantrums and whatnots come along 😉
I love watching DIYs and love to claim that I have so many ideas in my mind. However, I must admit that DIYs are Kaye’s forte – her entry for this post and the whole of her blog site is proof enough 😉 I guess I can copy or follow if there are instructions provided but making things from scratch will take a lot of work for me. I always end up in a mess and come out with a really simple one or some times nothing! Hehe. Hey, at least I try. 🙂 I think I’m much better at organizing things and food.
Since I am aware that I’m crappy at DIYs, instead of venturing into creating something from scratch, I have decided to recycle some unused things around the house.
First off, I collected materials that I knew would come handy.
I prepared my desk by placing some water and old newspaper. Glitter and paint are never the neatest combination!
I wanted something which I can hang on the main door to replace that wicked chime (I dislike chimes – irritating little buggers).It took me forever to think how am I going to do such a thing. I swear I had lots of drawings in my head but landed up with this idea because I didn’t know how I would do the more difficult ones I thought of. Lol.
Second and last piece.
I’m a sucker of light emitting objects especially lanterns.
I added more details by using glitter pens and since the glass was a little dull, I happen to have some glass paint in my possession and starting dabbing it away on each glass surface.
