So remember these things I found at the flea market? I paid $12 for them. They were for my christmas mantel!!

We took the fabric off (and when I say we, I mean Adrian).

I got a small wreath and all these little things from Walmart. I wanted to keep it simple and have a wintery feel and I found everything I wanted right there so I went with it.

And then we had this:12188931_10153774357083453_8163302490434979298_n

 

We used the other frame to make the N for Noel (and again, when I say we, I mean him again…). We used an old frame from the thrift store for the L and got the E from Michael’s and I painted it white. We found the wreath for the O and the tree at Michael’s too. The tree was originally gold but I spray painted it and the pinecone silver.

A little edit. I found something to plug the hole! It’s an old ornament I had. It’s perfect!
