Christmas Decor Cheaply!

Hi everyone - are you getting excited for Christmas yet? My little brother arrives on Sunday for a five week stay and we can't wait, I think I might have more anticipatory butterflies than he does!

I got to spend the day with my two favouritest (just trust me....that's a word, yup, nothing being made up here!) lovely ladies today....lots of talk, good coffee, yummy food, shopping and Christmas pressies - fun! I picked up a couple of bargains and using those with a couple of recycled packinging items I got today, I created some quick Christmas decor this afternoon.

I grabbed some baker's twine at Kikki.K and it came in this gorgeous bag....
way too cute to throw out right? So I decided to cut out one of the images and pair it with a pretty frame Mum gave me last Christmas.

Awwww, they're in love! (that's my story anyway)

I also fed my Coke Zero addiction with one of those adorable little glass bottles...and it turned into this...
I had picked up the pebbles for another project, and the twig is from our garden. I coated it in Mod Podge then some Martha Stewart glitter in Onyx that I got on sale today...yippee. I really like the way the twig turned out, so much so that I just left it plain. The ribbon and button are from SU!

I'll leave you with a little game of spot the photo shoot guest stars!
