Do you keep old magazines?
The Duchess rarely throws away a Christmas issue. She keeps them from as far back as the '70s in an unused linen closet upstairs in her home. Whenever you want some inspiration, you can just head up there and browse through a pile. It's fun to see how styles have changed.
I saw this window in this copy of Woman's Day from 1987
And decided to do that with one of the remaining old church windows
on my 101 List over there on my sideboard.
I smashed out the glass on this one and painted it Heirloom White.
Then sprayed the hardware oil rubbed bronze
I know you' re very shocked that I used those two colors...
The rest was not rocket science, of course.
I used two different kinds of ornaments because they didn't have six of either kind left at Hobby Lobby. Plus, it's a little more forgiving when the two in the middle are slightly larger.
I used real greenery from the yard because I like it that way. I'll probably have to change it mid season so I might make fake ones then instead.
Add a little bow...
And there ya go.
Ho Ho Ho!
