Good morning! We are in December! Can you believe it? This time of year goes by so fast! Do you have parties to go to, or family get-togethers? Or maybe your hosting this year. There is so much to do! I love to create some new ornaments this time of year too. I came up with a simple beach/ocean ornament for my tree. I made bigger ones of these earlier this year, and I thought little ones would be so cute!
I had my husband cut out some little pieces from some scrap wood we had. The tallest one is 4 1/2 inches tall and the smallest is 1 3/4 inches tall. The tops were cut in on each side and then a small hole drilled in it. I used some Waverly chalk paint to paint 2 of them ‘Mineral’ and 2 of them ‘White.’
I taped off different areas of the buoy to add the colored stripes. I used orange, turquoise and black. After the paint was dry, I added a piece of twine through the top.
Here are the finished pieces! I hung them on a little faux tree I have on my front porch.
I found the wooden bobbers this past summer at an estate sale and freshened them up with some turquoise paint.
I love the mixture of the ornaments, the rope garland and the starfish on top.
I have been busy decorating the other room in my house and hope to have tours up real soon! Have a great week!
