This year’s Christmas theme was inspired by our favourite ‘For like Ever’ print, with its combo of soft peachy pink and red, it was a perfect twist on a traditional Christmas colour scheme. We’re all about working with what you’ve got and giving it a new twist. This year we decided to drape our copper lights around the art rather than the tree.
When it came to dressing the tree, which is a matt black – we knew we wanted to incorporate a natural element. After scouring the stores with no luck we decided to make our own decorations that tied in our peachy pink and copper theme. We bought 20 kaiserwood stars from Spotlight for about $3.50 each, a roll of copper beading wire and a tube of copper paint. The peachy pink was left over from our painted antler project earlier in the year.
After masking the stars through the centre, we painted two coats of metallic copper and peachy pink on one half of the stars. Once the paint was dry we removed the tape, then using a hot glue gun, attached the hooks made from the copper wire. These decorations could easily be made with any shape or paint colour, we love how the natural wood is still a feature.
