Recycled Christmas Decorations

I got two more of my Christmas Pinterest to-do list. After I had blogged about my projects, some of my gracious readers (read my family members) came through for me. I was lacking the barn board and the pinecones for the first and fourth items on my decorating list.

My father came through with the board and some of the pinecones while my sister-in-law got the rest of the pinecones during a Thanksgiving Day hunt. (Thanks guys!)
Star Project Idea: Beyond the Picket Fence
Talk about a simple and easy project. (Once you have the board, that is.) I raided Mr. Cherry's workshop for five nails and after hammering them in, tied the ribbon. Easy as that.
Painted Pinecone Project Idea: Under the Sycamore
While this one took a little more time, it was just as simple. And with these simple touches, I am loving how my entryway shelf is looking. All ready for Christmas.
I am linking up with the fabulous bloggers doing Dare to DIY: Dare to Decorate at the blogs Newly Woodwards, Decor and the Dog, Maybe Matilda, and Two Twenty One. Be sure to stop by and check out their great projects.

I love the red star from ribbon. The way you tied it, makes me think of ballerina shoes. Love that!

How pretty! The star art is so simple but so striking. And the painted pinecones are just plain fun. Love it!
