Star Garland {made from old place card holders}







I bought these place card holders the day after Christmas in 1999. Yep. That is a long time ago. I was nesting away trying to take bags to the Thrift Store. Well, I loved the stars, but I am not into gold...so I brought them in...took the stickers off and used GLOSS paint to give them a fresh new cottage look. I love them. I let them dry and then took a piece of red and white Bakers Twine and attached them to twine with the card holder wire. It worked perfect...and if I need them for place cards, I can simply take them off the twine and use them for whatever. I love finding old things that have not been used and find a use for them.

What is something you have found that is not being used from around your home and turned it into something useful or for decoration? I would love to hear or see!

Happy Sunday. Sorry the pichave not been very good lately and that the posts have been really hit and miss. Maybe after December, things will settle down a bit. :} Aside from that, there is way too much going on for you all to be reading anyway.
