Im doing some Christmas in July decor so i have decided to go for very earthy colours and taking all the bright colours out of Christmas by going white, brown, and maybe just a little red. Im going to stick to colours that naturally show due to them being part of the item getting an upcycle makeover!
I started with this Christmas tree that has so far totally blown the plain colour theory out the water as this magazine was so colourful, but its to cute not to include in the mix.
All it needs now is a star or two and maybe an angel.
This is a coke bottle and bottle top curtain that i made for a client to bring colour to a wall. This is easy to do and you can make one to. All i did was make holes in the lids of the bottle tops and thread them together with gut and beads. The colour flower coke bottle parts are painted with glass paint.
