Gothidays 2012, Day Six: Not a Santa hat but a Fez

Almost the last post of Gothidays, sigh. It was so fun to do this and an excellent challenge!
Instead of removing everything in the home from Halloween decorations, I have used some for the Christmas decorations. The dead mossy twigs from our garden hegde (yeah this is how the hegde look like around the garden :/) have changed ornaments. First I sprayed the twigs with laquer and drizzled a mix of mica flakes and glass glitter over them to get a frosty glittery feeling, not visible though. The black bow was changed to a white and new ornaments is hung.


Candy cones, crosses and hearts in the white, beige and black colour theme.


On the mantelpiece a skull with a fez is placed (from my silly hat collection). And liqueur glasses with tea candles are lit.
Johan have a part in this decoration as well. At night a glowing light in changing colours is lighting up the scull from the inside.

 It's not a traditional christmas decoration but it has all the colours right?

  3. Tjusigt träd! :) Vi skippade gran detta året, men fina kvistar och gran som dekoration blir det nog!
    Jag är också lite avis på den öppna spisen :D Vi har också kamin, men man vill ju helt ha en öppen spis i vardagsrummet <3 Mys!

    1. Då kanske vi är heltokiga som funderar på att sätta in en insats i den? :)

  4. OMG, I LOVE that moss and the ornaments on it? Did you make the ornaments yourself? If so, how? Can you post a tutorial? Please? :)

    1. Yeah I did them myself :). The cones are very simple, cerealbox wrapped and glued into cones, then glued paper (notepaper etc ) after that embellished with different prints, laces ribbons and glitter. The crosses are thinner cardboard cut in a shape I made, on both sides pictures, notepaper or something similar is glued on. The edges on the crosses are glued than glittered. Hope this was helpful.

  9. I ADORE your Christmas decorations. I love your taste and style! :) I've missed all the "Gothidays" festivities because I've been caught up in the "Creepmas" blog fest (and lost my internet for several days), but I'm looking forward to going back through your posts.
