Recap Of My 22 Thrifted/Upcycled/DIY 2021 Christmas Projects

My Christmas decorating projects began in October with these garage sale bottles in a metal container from a garage sale.

The bottles were painted with Dixie Belle Paint and decorated with Redesign With Prima Christmas decor transfers.

After finding a cutting board at a garage sale, I created this wall pocket with more decor transfers and a Hobby Lobby galvanized container.

Next, I experimented with a project using both Old Sign Stencils & Redesign with Prima decor transfers on a bucket painted with Dixie Belle Paint in Caviar.
