Refashioning Decor

It's difficult to buy new decor for the holidays.
Especially when money is tight!

A way around that is to refashion what you already have!
Give some of your decorations a facelift!

Take this green star for instance.
 I like the color, but I wanted a lighter, brighter feel this season.

After I painted it white, I sanded it so the color would show through.

To dress the star, I grabbed something from my Thanksgiving decor and flipped it over.

I didn't paint over it. That way I can still use the other side.

I just brushed over it with 3/4 of a coat of red paint

Put a little vinyl on top

And hung it on the star

and hung the star from the curtain rod.

I really like hanging decorations from windows.
It's nice if you don't have a lot of shelf space and you don't want to put a bunch of new holes in the walls.

Go through your decor! See if there's something you can tweak!
It can be as simple as hanging ornaments on a twiggy wreath!

Have a great weekend!

  1. This post is excellent! You've inspired me to dig into my old decorations and see if there are some I'd like to re-fashion!

  2. I like to hang things from my windows, too. :) Yours look great!

  3. Great ideas, especially flipping the little tag over for both seasons. I like quick updates that make you totally love your items again. Thanks for sharing.

  4. How pretty! I just ordered a couple of big stars on Etsy. They need to be painted. I'll probably do something similar to what you did. Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. Thanks so much for the inspiration!!! I love that you just flipped that little sign and painted the other side!!! great idea :D
