More Leftovers

Since my peacock Christmas makeover was budget based I used what I had around the house and lots of creativity.

Remember my walls are also a pretty peacock blue color? The little sample pot of paint came in handy here.



Added to some white paint, I got a pretty turquoise color



And left over glass ornaments I bought on clearance at Target last year.

It's these times where I am thankful for my needless buying/shopping. Take these ornaments for example, when I bought them it was kinda like, "I don't really need these at all but they are pretty, so in the cart they go". (That's how the conversation in my head went, just in case you were wondering )





Leftover paint + clearance glass ornaments = pretty additions for my tree to go with the Peacock color theme.






I love being in the Christmas spirit- it really is the best time of year!!!

SO pretty! I love the blue. And you just inspired me to not throw out the leftover paint I just used to paint my walls.... :)

looks good. I went to an ornament painting party last sunday and mine turned out totally lame. I was so disappointed in my crafting skills.

Some of the girls were doing this pour and shake thing...I had never seen that, very cool

Did you see goody (I think) has a peacock hair clip (I saw it at Target)? I thought you might be able to get it cheap and repurpose for your decor?

K- I had not seen those, I will have to go to check them out- thanks for the heads up!

Aren't you clever! If I did this I could just see myself hanging them up prior to the paint drying, with a few falling off and breaking...
Your place looks completely ready for some celebrating!

Great job - they look terrific. I didn't realize that paint would give the glass balls such a nice finish.
