A Hand Made Christmas – Crate transformation


I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.
Charles Dickens 

Como les comentaba en postes anteriores (aquí y aquí), en casa queremos hacer de esta Navidad una Navidad Hand Made, con lo que tenemos por casa, con lo que encontramos en la calle, o en el bosque…


Así fue como un día que el camión de basura no pasó por Madrid y me encontré unos cuantos cajones de frutas, yo feliz como una perdiz los cargué en el coche pensando todo lo que podía hacer con ellos!!!



Uno de ellos se transformó en esto:


Lo pinté de rojo y lo envejecí un poquito con betún de Judea.
Le agregué las ramitas que me habían quedado de nuestro paseo del fin de semana pasado en el bosque y algunas piñas.




Como lo veía un poco tristón le puse unas velas.





 Seguía sin convencerme demasiado, así que para que sea de Navidad de la buena le puse unas luces que me sobraron del arbolito.




Y colorín colorado el cuento del cajoncito de fruta ha terminado.




 En la semana les contaré qué fue de la vida de los otros cajones…


Buena semana y sed felices!!!! Have a good week and be happy!!!!

Hasta pronto!!!!!  See you soon!!!

Me pone muy contenta leer los comentarios que me dejan. Gracias!!!!
I am very happy for your comments. Thank you!

Me uno a estas fiestas. I'm joining these parties:
