Decorating my dining room table for
the Holiday edition of
the Copy Cat Challenge
is the first little bit of
Christmas decorating at my own house
that I have done this year.
My inspiration comes from "Family Circle"
December 2011 edition.
They even give the "how-to's" of achieving the look.
I had some brass candlesticks in the attic that I have not used in years that got a
metallic spray paint update. Also, I had a couple of Dollar Tree wooden candlesticks
that even got the glitter treatment mentioned in the instructions.
Here is my attempt to copy the magazine photo.
Pretty votives that were a Christmas present last year
became mini vases to hold some greenery.
An element not mentioned in the instructions,
but what turned out to be one of my favorite touches,
was the clear glass "bubbles" in the picture.
I just bought two boxes of different sized Christmas ornaments to try to copy this look.
I pulled the hanger portion of the ornament off.
The mirrored screen in the room reflects the candles' glow.
This challenge inspired me to spray paint even more items
to add to this centerpiece soon.
I'll be posting the additions when I get back from
a fun trip to Colorado to babysit my grand daughter.
