I gave you a peek of what I would be sharing today on Friday:
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 is my last Habitat Restore treasure.)
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 globe/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 the garage. 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, and I found this one that was perfect at Hobby Lobby.
And here is how it looks finished:
I borrowed a few pieces from my Christmas Village to put inside…
The Santa building a snowman actually came from Walmart this year. The sleds and tree are from Lemax that I’ve had for a few years.
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.
The garland inside came as a pack of straight pieces.
I found those and the bows at Hobby Lobby.
