How’s your Christmas decorating going? Are you done yet? I’m 100% done, but I’ve finally got a minute to share a project with you that has actually been complete for a while! As I’m sure you all know, I like to use as many colours as I can when decorating, and style wise it’s a bit of a hodge podge with retro and traditional elements coming to a head on my Christmas tree. So for this month’s theme with DecoArt we were asked to use the Satin Enamels collection to create warm & cozy decor that spoke to us. I opted to do some Colourful Painted Nutcrackers because I think they contribute to the warmth and cozynness of a space – in this case, our main floor bathroom!
I thought about painting them like the other ones in my collection (with more detail: faces, buttons etc), but I decided to do them all one colour so that they’d have a bigger impact. The Satin Enamels have got a beautiful glow to them, and I wanted to get the most out of the project so I was glad to use the satin enamels. Like I said, these are actually in our main floor bathroom, and you can see them in the context of our Christmas tour // here //
