Shabby Chic White Christmas (on a budget)

Good morning ya'll!
It's time for a Shabby Chic Christmas!
I have been working on Christmas in my home, Flea Market booths and Etsy store.
I have kids, so, my Christmas decorating budget is SMALL!
~Giggles~
Sooooo, I search my creative brain high and low for neato ways to remake what I have into something pretty and Shabby for Christmas!
This pretty Marie Antoinette Christmas garland I created by stripping
the leaves off of a grapevine garland and painting the base a soft ballerina pink.
I used white pearls and pretty snowflake bows to doll it up!
One of my all time favorite things to create are wreaths!
I collect florals and ornaments from tag sales and resale shoppes until I have
a big pile.
Then I go crazy filling up a pretty evergreen or grapevine base with tons of roses and ornaments.
For this wreath I sprayed the holly branches pink to match the ornaments and bow.
I found this shade of pink ribbon in the regular ribbon section at the craft store.

I created this pretty garland from a cast off Christmas tree and pink napkin rosette!
Tutorial on this coming soon!
Isn't this frosty the snowman a cutie pie!
I added the pink scarf to give him some Shabby flair!
(We put his red scarf back on...my son said it made him look like a girl)
Giggles!!!!!
Mr Romantic fixed my computer so I am back in business baby!
Whoo Hoo!
Much more Shabby Christmas to come!
Today, I am busy putting up my Shabby Chic white Christmas tree in the living room!
I will be sharing with
My Romantic Home
and
Pink Saturday!
Hugs and love!
Olivia
