Decorating our homes for each season seems such a logical thing for all of us to do, but have you thought about decorating your little statues and statuettes the same way? Today I am sharing some fun wonderful statue transformations from my friends and some of my own.
Let’s begin this angelic tour, shall we?…
“The Girls” get decorated each winter outdoors with faux berry head wreaths or roses each year. This is a favorite way I like to decorate my outdoor statues. Recently, I found a pepper tree near our Texas home and now I am just waiting for the berries to get ripe!*
*Turns out the Texas version of a pepper tree is different than its California cousin in that it has berries far apart on little branchlets and also has thorns, so… No new head wreaths unless I make them with faux berries again. 😦
Here in a Valentine’s Tablesetting ~ Ethereal in Pink our fair maiden wore a child’s tutu as a stole. Perfect for a fall Halloween party (with an added mask!) or for Valentine’s, this is a super easy way to dress up your statues.
Cindy of Edith and Evelyn Vintage has an incredible angel which she found for sale when a church was closing its doors. Made of solid plaster but missing its wings, her husband fashioned a pair from a store-bought pair replacing the original ones lost to time. Here this angel is most decidedly angelic with its crown, sceptre and rosary beads ~ stunning!
Spur of the moment idea
Here our Lady Liberty wears our nation’s colors proudly! This was a photo I took for a 4th of July Pinterest Challenge but used later in this 10 on the 10th post. Repurposing worn flags into pillows or like I have done here is a good way to give a retired flag a second life.
Just go with it
“Spur of the moment ideas” when decorating are sometimes the most brilliant and often we just need to “go with it” when decorating our homes! If you love statues like I do then adding pieces of vintage jewelry to yours is an easy way to begin.
I hope you have enjoyed this tour of angelic statues today and have found a few ideas to use to decorate yours! Here is a pin to share and if you like what you see here, please consider following along. Thank you! 🙂
