Re: What Do You Do With 25 Stoplight Lenses???

Thanks again all for your great support!!

Lani,
The background for this is actually made out of plywood and 1 x 2's for the supports. JH tried and tried to talk me into painting this green but I was adamant that black was the ONLY way to go on this on. See, fooled the eye that it was metal, didn't it??? I don't think it would have had the same affect with the green paint...now he wants me to put a star on it....NOT....he jsut can't get used to the sleek, clean, rusty look! lol

Yes, Sue...JH is quite the 'trooper'! He complains.... but loves it the whole time!!! lol

cynthia

Re: Tractor Steering Wheel Wreath

Oh my....you guys just cannot believe how much I have downsized! I used to have 13-15 trees up a year! We opened our house up for 5 years, for tour and charged a can of food for admission. Then donated all of the collected food to the Food Bank in our town. I'm liking the 'a little bit makes a big impact' look more and more. I used to have sooooooooooo much stuff. And as for storage? Most of this stuff is out (with the exception of the trees) and just used year 'round in a different way! Most of my closests are empty! Thanks again for the kudos!

cynthia

Re: Champagne Glass Christmas Tree Pic With No Lights

The lights are just regular twinklelights, that came on the pre-lit tree. Then I added some of those big, clear outdoor bulbs and just strung them on the tree. I just kept the glasses hanging on the outside edges of the tree and the lights are strung towards the inside. So guess it's an illusion that there are lights 'in' the glasses!

cynthia

Re: Fun With Clipboards

Sharon: Nope, their hanging on the DR wall all by theirselves!! I use these clipboards for all different seasons and just stuff. Their very handy. Did you notice the 'Noah' potato masher on the tree topper? I just LOVE, LOVE them!!!

p.s. Sharon made me the potaoot masher and the little Emerson angel, hanging further down the tree. Then I tried my hand at the rest of the 'ornaments' (3 more grandkids and 4 pugs) and wala...the JM tree! Couldn't have done it without Sharon's patient instructions1!!

Christy: I actually did one of these of my 4 year old niece. All of her little friends thought it was soooo cool! Guess Aunt Cinda scored again! haha

Sue: Thanks for all the compliments. I work on things throughout the whole year...yes, I'm thinking Christmas in July! But, I'm extemely lazy in the posting area..hence, that's why you guys get all of the pictures at one time!!
Thanks again all!!
cynthia

Re: Champagne Glass Christmas Tree

fellowjunker: That 'grate' thingy was actually made for me by Ki, in one of previous 'junk swaps'. It is actually a large solid piece of wood molding. JH says the littly thingy's on the front are old screen door latches. Ingenious, huh? It is one of my fav pieces to decorate with.

junkartqueen: I'll try and take a pic without the light, but the glasses really blend in with the green tree without the lights. I would have liked to have done another white tree with these glasses. I've received a lot of compliments on this tree, too.

Candy: great idea about adding wording to the ribbons!

Thanks again all!

Re: JM Christmas Tree!

junktique: I didn't have any presents wrapped when I took the pictures, but since then, I have filled the basket with presents.

Re: Christmas Dining Room

wow, guys...thanks for all the lovely compliments. First of all let me say that I DON"T have the 'Martha Stewart' syndrome,LoL, by decoratng so early. My children/Grandchildren and some other family members are coming in from Oklahoma, for Thanksgiving and since they won't be back for Christmas, we're celebrating while their here. OK. So it's a good excuse for decorating early...but it works!! ha

Gretchen,
The big candle pillar in the middle is actually a set of 3. I have the other 2 sizes in the bathroom with candles, too.

Re: An Elegant Junky Holiday

Amy, these are just beautiful and creative pieces! I've never seen Christmas tree stands like this? Are these vintage? Love the look!
Sue,
I think Sunday showcase is a great idea! I'm game! And you're right. I have met so many great junkers online(yourself, included) because of this site. It truly is a great thing.

I haven't been on site for awhile and I just posted a few projects. I've noticed the "thumbs up awesome"!! Is this something new? Or am I just behind? lol

Re: Help!!! Ideas Needed

Gretchen, I LOVE scales!! I guess you could say I 'collect' them since I think I now own about 10 or so. Just out of curiosity, what would you be asking for a piece like this? And where do you live that it woud have to be shipped?
Another decorating idea is to load it with pillar candles and use as a centerpiece? You could use it as a vegetable holder (potatos/onions?) in the kitchen. Load it up with bars of soaps and towels. See, the list goes on! ha

Re: Here's Another "Guess What It's Made From!"

Ding! Ding!!! Christy won the guess!!!

Yes, it is an old world globe painted. The hat is made from some left-over anagalyptic wallpaper painted. The arms are an old sweater. The feet are a shower curtain. The black diamond shaped triangle thing is an old 1960's plastic wall plaque. Now wasn't that fun repurpose thingy?????

Christy, want to see the globes!!!

cynthia

Re: Here's Another "Guess What It's Made From!"

OK. Geo and LuAnn....good guess on Mr. Pumpkin Head but.....................not even close!!!

Bowling ball is waaaay to heavy. This is much more lightweight.
Gazing ball would break.

Any other guesses???

Soooooo....I guess what I'm 'fessin' up to is I decorate just for the kid in ME!!!! lol

Thanks again all!
c

Re: Bowling Ball Pumpkin

Wow! Thanks everyone for the great comments!!!

Geo,
Really...this is sooooo easy to make.

As a matter of fact, my 4 year old niece crumbled up the pieces of foil for me!!! You can use tin foil, in small pieces, just fine. I used some old reeses foiled candy wrappers, too. I decopauged (sp?) it all on with just deco glue...many layers! Used a little spray paint. Oh, and a little brown glaze.

Next is just rows of hot glue. Then dab-painted the hot glue, too!

Let the whole thing dry. Then gave a really good coat or two or three of polyurethane! I painted it on so it would help seal any foil pieces that might have neglected to stick before!

The stem is a stick from my back yard. I hot glued this inside the finger holes. The spanish moss and leaves are all hot glued to cover the finer holes as well.

That's it! I used mine as an indoor decoration, but I think it would be fine sitting in a covered porch area...

Ok. I'm ready to see some bowling punkins out there!!!!

Hey Christi,,,no, this didn't come from the 127. I bought this at a GS last Spring. I actually have this in my Dining Room right now. It sure comes in handy for quick storage!!!

Re: Domino Coasters

I just recently found a bag of these I had put back for something. Think I'll try this one out!! Did you use any glue or just the peel and stick of the tile?
