Vintage Bike Decor

Yesterday we cleaned out our garage there wasn't really a place for this vintage Bike so it got brought in the house and made a part of the decor.

Bike Wheel Light

With a joint effort with my husband we made this bike rim light from our old outdated light fixture. I used Rust-Oleum hammered metal to paint the gold chain and using the bike rim that was a wreath for Christmas decor my genius husband figured out how to remove the hideous shade and attach the bike rim.

Before photos of light/dinning room

After picture. It is starting to come together, I just need to find a couple more chairs folding chairs don't work too well as permanent kid friendly dinning room seating.

Handmade Christmas Day 10 Chapstick holder.

This Chapstick cozy is easy and quick to make and would make great gifts.

For this Chapstick holder keychain you will need:

2"width ribbon (I recommend ribbon wit wire)
Sewing machine

First thing you will do is cut a piece of ribbon that is about 10" I used a ribbon with a wire this makes folding up edges for heming easy.

Fold top end over twice to make a clean edge

Put ribbon through the key ring and sew it

Fold the bottom up and sew to create a clean bottom edge

Fold bottom up about 2.75"

Sew the sides up I sewed right along the wire edge of the ribbon.

And you have a Chapstick cozy keychain.

Handmade Christmas Day 9 stump snowman

We cut down a bunch of trees in our backyard so we have a bunch of cut wood just sitting back there. I wanted to put one to use and make something. What I came up was Stumpy the snowman ( logman?). I am not really sure what to think of him he is kinda funny looking.

I used:

A log painted white
Rocks ( eyes and mouth)
Clothes pin painted orange (nose)
Fabric scraps (hat and scarf)
Fishing line (tied around hat to close top)
Pom pom
Sticks painted white

Transporting Stumpy to the porch.
