Before, I invite you to Mette‘s stage, let me share with you this little story!
Mette has been a loyal contributor to my blog for more than one year with stunning DIY projects. These have been featured literally everywhere, and counting on her as a contributor has always filled me with pride and joy.
We are good friends since then and try to meet up at least once a year. To my surprise, I received straight into my inbox some days ago this absolutely wonderful DIY as a little Christmas gift and a note from Mette saying ‘just a little early merry gift from me to you’. This is what wonderful people do and I can’t quite express how surprised, grateful, excited, touched…I was.
So get ready for a jaw-dropping Christmas tutorial!
Dear Eclectic Trend readers, it’s me Mette from monsterscircus. I’m so happy to be back and a BIG congratulation on your perfect new design, Gudy! You’re so very gifted and has a wonderful eye for trends and aesthetic.
Most of us loves Christmas! Every year we gather, decorate our homes, trees, cook amazing dinners and warm up together. Now you can make your Christmas even cozier and warmer decorating it with a touch of dried greens.
Oooh, and darling you know what these babies can do with your home; they sure bring coziness and minimalist chic at the same time.
Plant-cuts is perfect for creating lovely still life and decorations for Christmas and of course, gold is perfect for Christmas décor too. Decorate your tree, your table, a tray or a window with these beautiful botanical ornaments.
Add you vintage baubles and lots of glitter and they will give your space a stunning warming up atmosphere.
So let’s jump to the tutorial.
Cacti cut or dried flowers
Chopstick to handle the cactus
Cut your cactus from the root.
Place the cacti cut inside a bauble – note: You will need to let you cacti dry completely before capsuling it in the clear bauble or else they will mold.
I’m not trying to encourage you to kill your darling cacties, instead you can use twigs or dried flowers instead, add a little golden spray-paint and you’re already rocking halfway through December.
That’s all from me, I hope you liked this little Christmassy idea, so let your Christmas shine!
May this Christmas end the present year on a cheerful note and make way for a fresh and bright New Year to all of you and your loved ones!
Mette, thank you so much!! I already know by now, this will be one of the most beautiful Christmas tutorials all over the web in 2015. There is no doubt, YOU are the golden rocky glitter star here! Much love, Gudy
Just lovelyI I admire your crafts, they are very elegant yet easy to make! Coincidentally I was at Michaels earlier today and saw similar baubles like the ones you used. They were made of glass though so I went for a plastic one in shape of a light bulb! Now I could try to put dry flowers inside of them ;)
All the best,
