I had an accident. Oops . . . the wind blew the Christmas tree on my front porch over and bulbs on the string of lights broke. This caused the entire string of lights to no longer work. I could just throw the whole strand away. But that's when a light bulb (pun intended) went off in my head. Hmmmm...I have an idea...
I started with two strands of tangled lights with a few broken bulbs. But why throw it all away when you can repurpose part of it.
So I removed all the intact bulbs . . .
And found a large vintage jar amongst my many stashed away items. And when I say many, I mean many. Just ask my hubby! LOL!
I grabbed some birch twigs and some glittered twigs I already had.
All I needed now was some items for a little extra embellishment. Greens, ribbon and vintage ornaments. Hey, I'm really getting into the ribbon and greens thingy. Watcha think? You impressed? Ha!
So here you go. An arrangement made from discarded items, and items laying around the house. Not bad heh?
I think the vase looks great in my kitchen. Whatcha think about the marshmellows in the vase? Lucky I don't have any mice around (I have three cats)!
So next time, think out of the box. Don't use the typical clear rocks in your arrangement. I think you might be surprised at what you'll find!
