There are few things I love more than turning something old and forgotten into a brand
Today, I’m sharing how I created brand new Christmas Decor out of this old light fixture:
This was an outdoor light fixture that I spied at the Habitat Restore. Every once in a while I get really lucky in there. (HERE’s a great Habitat Restore treasure from way back.)
It was originally 24.99, but marked down to $14.99, and it was an additional 40% off, so it came in at around $9.
I thought that if I could figure out how to remove the lighting components inside that it would make an awesome cloche for the Holidays.
I was able to remove the insides and rework the handle and was left with this:
I needed a base for it, so I cut one from a scrap piece of wood:
Then I gave them both a new paint job…
It was still missing something, so I decided to add some height with an old wooden candlestick I found in my stash. After painting it, I attached it with a screw down through the middle. Then I added glitter by spraying with a matte clear sealer first, then adding the glitter:
I wanted a glitter that would look white rather than iridescent, and I found this one that was perfect at Hobby Lobby.
And here is how I turned an old outdoor light Fixture into brand new Christmas decor!
It’s been more difficult than ever to find unique Christmas decor this year with all that has been going on, but upcycling is a great way to create something that nobody else has!
I borrowed a few pieces from my Christmas Village to put inside…
The Santa building a snowman came from Walmart, and the sleds and tree came from Lemax several years ago.
I tried a few different displays in here and it was fun seeing the scenes come to life under the glass. I liked the reds and settled on this combination, but you could easily change it out from year to year or even holiday to holiday!
The garland inside came as a pack of straight pieces.
I found those and the bows at Hobby Lobby.
This light fixture turned cloche worked great as the star of this Christmas vignette!
I hope you enjoyed this thrifty Christmas decor project today!
