Thrift Store Challenge

Welcome to this months Challange. Thanks to our hosts Emily and Tara.

Today I’m sharing my silver leaf project. I purchased plastic Christmas balls from Michael’s for a steal. Twenty balls for $5, pretty good right?


Silver leaf and adhesive was $10 from Amazon so right on target for money, love when that happens.  Mona Lisa and they have improved the product from years ago when I first used silver leaf.  This project went relatively quick.\

I placed them a bowl on a buffet in our dining room and added preserved cedar pieces.  The candleholders have gilded artichokes instead of candles that would normally be in their place.  I added a small cow bell with the balls and small pinecones for interest and texture.


I’ll be sharing the dining room this week for Christmas. I hope you come back to see some pretty Christmas touches.

Please take time and visit the other ladies to see what they decided to do this month.
