Today I finally got around to finishing off the decorations I started the other week. I must have been very organised when putting away the Christmas decorations last year. I knew we had some cans of gold spray so I sent my husband to the loft to search through the Christmas box. He found a bag at the top of the box that had the tins of spray, an advent stocking string and the advent candle holder. It is all the stuff that every year I wish I had to hand as I seem to need it long before we get the box of decorations down. Usually I end up buying more as I can’t be bothered to go and hunt it out of the box.
Anyway I digress, I have now sprayed the decorations gold and added a loop of ribbon so that they can hang from the tree. Some of the decorations did not come out as well as I hoped and a few had cracked on drying, but there are still plenty. I think they look very good and I hope others do too as I will try and sell these in a week’s time at the village Christmas Fayre. Some of the not too bad rejects I have also sprayed and ribboned and will sell them for a cheaper price.
I also stamped some with names on and these will be used as gift tags on presents.
All in all I am really pleased with how these have turned out.
