A Rusty Rake Decorated with Joy

I sure hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration yesterday. Now that Thanksgiving is behind us, I feel like I can officially move forward with some Christmas projects. I like to take it one holiday at a time.

Rust and rhinestone love!

I really thought I was finished with rake makeovers, but I couldn't resist another one after my mom presented me with this rusty little treasure. I always knew the partially painted aluminum candle holder would come in handy.

Look at that perfect fit! It was meant to be. I spray painted the candlestick to resemble its original color, roughed it up in a few areas to get some red to show through, then filled it with tiny mother of pearl buttons.

I stenciled some JOY on a small strip of jute webbing and added a rhinestone brooch for a little sparkle.

  19. I love all the creative things you make.

    My daughter is moving to Sacramento in the spring. I know I will have to go up to help her paint, sew drapes, etc. When that happens, I am going to insist we meet for lunch.
