Ok, well I'm tardy to the party, as usual, but here we go...
I've participated in Kim of Newlywoodwards 's Dare to DIY holiday series for many years now, even the year I was newly pregnant and grumpy, so I didn't want to fall off the wagon this year.
This week's project was Dare to Entertain, where you DIY something for your holiday table. I'm a bit Grinchy this year, so I haven't done too much, but I did stick some glitter on something, so it counts (right??).
While not technically on my table, our table sits against this window, so it's a big focal point of the kitchen in general. It needed some jazzing up, especially with the dreary winter view it holds.
I found these wooden stars at the thrift store for $.50. They spoke to me. They were also wrapped in that wiry tacky garland stuff. I kind of mangled my hands un-threading it. But worth it. I then glittered the edges. Boom.

This toned-down but still pretty little winter scene (ha) still makes me happy. I have gone with all gold/bronze/glittery this year with my decor (what little I can actually put out with grabby mcgrabberson 16 month old), so it fits in nicely.
Oh, and my glitter reindeer plates from last year. Love them.
