Not Too Shabby!

Shabby Chic Angel Ornament

Some decorating styles come and go but shabby chic is here to stay!  I find lace, rhinestones,  chenille bedspreads and crocheted items at garage sales all the time.  If the price is right it, it’s going home with me.

The angel ornament was a project to use up some of my crochet scraps.  I purchased the angel head cabochon on Etsy and printed out a parchment paper wing.

It is fun to experiment with crochet scraps and a little hot glue.  A ribbon rose is a nice shabby chic finishing touch.

I wrapped the Dollar Tree wreath form with strips of a chenille bedspread and hot glued strips of crochet and doily.  The paper roses are from the wedding section at Michael’s.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI used the same technique for this wreath.  I got the flowers from a garage sale and tea stained some seam tape for a dramatic touch.  Beaded Christmas garland adds some extra drama.

I have one more day of inventory for Every Husband’s Nightmare Bazaar!  Tomorrow I will feature all my  Beach Themed and Whimsical creations.  Whew, almost done!
