Black & White

Just sharing some small Christmas projects I slipped in over the long weekend.  Try as I might, I just couldn't get too many great shots of these Christmas houses I got from Hobby Lobby last month.
I decided to paint them black since I already did some smaller ones white and silver.  Plus, I'll get to use them next year for Halloween too!
I gave each a couple of coats of black acrylic paint, and then added some faux tealight candles.  We have them on a ledge in front of our front window.
I've had these Christmas trees for years.  This is the first time I've grouped them together.  What the heck took me so long?!
I used some salt and pepper shakers to make mini "snow globes." The photos are hard to make out but they are vintage Christmas images from The Graphics Fairy.

Lots more mini projects in the works.

  1. The trees are very cute all together. I never think to put all my like items together either (like my snowmen), although I'm going very, very simple this year so I won't have a real collection of any one thing this year.

  2. I just love your salt and pepper shakers turned mini snow globes! What a fun idea, you could keep those up all winter long!

  3. Great idea to go with the black houses. They look wonderful and like you said, ready to use next year for Halloween.
    Love your tree groupings. I did this with my collection of trees on my mantel and corner hutch.
    Have fun!

  4. Love the snow globe shakers, Jeanine! Adorable. :)
    Have a happy weekend,
