This year we were inspired by the bright colors of the season. We pulled out all the stops. Our original funky tree oil painting trio added whimsy to the mantal, along with some fabric trees. Curlicue candy canes add to the whimsy.
We created a one of a kind original art piece for above the credenza. Using a large canvas and acrylic paints, my son and I added "Merry and Bright" letters to the piece and topped it with a small strand of LED lights to punctuate the theme.
Topping off our Christmas cheer... The kids had a brilliant idea.
They sprayed the tree with chrome spray paint and added spots of glue spray... To place glitter.
The end result reminded me of a vintage aluminum tree.
Vintage ornaments in varied sizes were added making it one of my favorite trees to date.
Next year... Create your own style and think up an original way to show it off for Christmas!
