Snowflakes Anyone?

DSC_0030 (2)

If you've read my last post, then you know I've been a cleaning monster as I've been fluffing our house for the Christmas Parade of Homes on December 5th. (16 days & counting...)

As of today, I am dropping my title as the "cleaning monster" and I'm moving on towards becoming a "decorating diva".

Oh hell...Just call me the Snowflake Queen for the day...

What started off with some simple dollar store snowflakes, a box of small glittered snowflakes, some glue dots and ribbon has become such a total joy and yes...I AM playing with glitter, can you believe it? Just don't go tellin' the world now, okay?

Simple and plain white dollar store snowflakes...

(they look red because they are reflecting off of my red walls)

A box of small glittered snowflakes...

(which are 50% off)

Insert a glue dot and place the small snowflake in the center of the large white snowflake...

(you can place one on each side if you like)

Just add some ribbon for hanging and you will have a collage of glittery elegant snowflakes!!!!

(Just in case you are wondering, yes...that is a bathroom sink.)

The layers also look great on any kind of snowflake, I even embellished some larger and thinner ones too...

I cannot show you my snowflake masterpiece until after December 5th but let's just say it involves a bathroom mirror...

I'm having snow much fun!!!

With Love,

The Snowflake Queen

Looks like your cleaning mania paid off, that sink is so sparkly it could be in the show room at Home Depot, not in a real bathroom!

Sall's Country Life said...

Christmas is the one good excuse to bring out the glitter, Jodie. Your photos are wonderful, can't wait to see more of your Christmas stuff! Good Luck with the parade of homes.

I am so happy you have overcome your glitter allergy. Christmas isn't Christmas without it. You are on a roll girl!

Karen said...

HA! The second I saw the photo of the glitter snowflake I Emailed you so fast! I couldn't believe it. It is a Christmas Miracle - Jodie is cured of her allergy to glitter.
But I just cannot imagine Christmas without glitter. the two just kind of go hand in hand.
I can't wait to see your house. You've never shown it before - well except for your studio.
Very exciting!
And how did you get chosen to have your house on the house tour - if I may ask?
Have fun! Hugs! Me.

Hey little SNOWFLAKE QUEEN, I can't believe you are playing with glitter :-)! Isn't it fun? Hopefully you don't regret that you sent me some of the precious flakes. Maybe I have infected you with the glitter virus via telepathy because I have used your silver glass glitter several times over the last days :-). Your snowflakes look fantastic and very elegant! Your home will knock everybody's socks off!
Have more glittery fun!
Big HUGS,
Julia

Jodie,
I got some nice glitter snowflakes at Target last year (they still have them) and put them on a Silver Bella swap package. Well, I have to tell you, Sweetie. They look best layered. I know from seeing what you did. Thank you for teaching me!
Sending you big hugs,
Suz
P.S. I missed you at SB this year but I know you are having other wonderful adventures. There are so many wonderful events going on these days!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE glittered snowflakes!!!!!!!!!!! I have made several projects with them this year - some of which are on my blog. I buy them during the season (Hobby Lobby 50% off!) and AFTER when they are seriously reduced (some at Target and Walmart are beautiful). I love all the colors! the possibilities are endless!

Fantastic idea and they really do look vintage!

Miss Sandy said...

Jodie,

You are such a hoot! I got quite addicted to those same snowflakes last year and made a tone of paper point snowflakes with them. I love how sweet and simple this touch is, can't wait for the big reveal! Happy glittering!

Debby said...

Your snowflakes are really pretty, you are so smart..Can hardly wait for Dec. 5th to arrive and be gone, so we can get a tour.
Hugs,
Debby

T's Daily Treasures said...

Hey you big flake! HA! Ooops! I mean Queen of the Snowflakes. Of course, everything you touch turns to gold and those gold glittery flakes are just glorious! I can certainly understand why you would need to be a monster right about now. Having your home on the Christmas tour is an honor but Lord knows it takes a lot of prep work. It is going to be asbso-toot-ley fabulous! Wish I could be there to see you and your home this holiday season. Sending many blessings and good wishes your way. :) Tammy
