Most of my Christmas decorations are up, but I've been adding a few little things here and there for the last week or so. Last night I was looking at a great tutorial for making paper snowflakes and had a lightbulb moment. I took a piece of junk mail (we all have too much of that lying around, don't we?) and cut out a large snowflake. Then using scotch tape I attached it to the inside of the lampshade in our living room.
Isn't it pretty? I love that the different colors from the junk mail ad come through the lamp to make it look multicolored.
It was free, quick to make, and added a lot to the room. What more could you ask for?
