Wow, thank you all so, so much for your incredibly sweet comments on our Christmas home tour yesterday.
Because we had a lot of comments on the Merry & Bright art I made, I’ve decided to share a free print version.
I used Photoshop, so it’s not wonky like my hand drawn design.
Get your own Merry & Bright with black backing:
Or save yourself some ink and print the Merry & Bright with white backing:
Also, our stocking hangers are slightly unconventional, but I love them.
Last year, I bought traditional stocking hangers from Target on clearance. You know, the heavy rectangles with the little hook. They work great, but were wider than I wanted. Well, I got rail road spikes, just to use as decor. Inspired by these porcelain beauties, I sprayed two of the five matte white, then painted the ends with gold Liquid Leaf.
Then I realized, these spikes are heavy, about the same as the hooks. So I swapped them with the hooks. Bam, more decorating space and less noticeable hooks.
And, I get to use the bad boys as table decor after the holidays.
I think I’ll spray the rusted spikes with a clear matte finish, just to prevent rust getting all over. Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
