Shabby Christmas Decor with GDT Kim N.

Hi there, Kim here with my second Guest DT project for Shabby is Chic Boutique. This time I altered a glass block and turned it into a shabby Christmas décor piece.
 
 
I started with a glass block and glued wide lace around the outside, followed by 2 rows of mini flat back pearl trim. I adhered a piece of cardstock to the back of the block that has the message “Merry and Bright” on it and glued some lace from SCB under it.
 
 
On the front, I added some of the gorgeous blue lace from Shabby is Chic Boutique and some silver tinsel trim from my stash. In the center on the top I attached a stunning piece of rhinestone bling, also from the store. I love the look it gives the piece, almost like icicles. I also decorated the corners a bit by adding some silver stars and mini white foam roses that have been sprinkled with glass glitter.
Layering a handmade flower made from the white chiffon trim and light blue seam binding from SCB created the embellishment on the top. I also added some light blue ribbon, white tassels, and light blue pearls from my stash.
 
 
 


 
 
 
I hope you enjoy my project! I had so much fun thinking about winter and the holidays in this sweltering heat. Please check out Shabby is Chic Boutique and thank you so much for looking!
