About a week ago, I began to decorate it for Christmas. But something wasn't right. The proportions were all wrong. Something was missing. And then it hit me. There wasn't enough height. hmmmmm. Shutters would look great. But I have no shutters. So I guess I'll make some. And I did. Out of an old blind. What do think?
Yep, that's right! An old blind. A fake wood blind that no longer worked. The broken one that used to hang in our dining room. Remember this awful mess?
Well, with few cuts and a glue gun, the broken, fake wood blind turned into this. A lovely pair of shutters.
The shutters become the perfect backdrop for Christmas card holder that I made from an old frame vintage wire and bunting with vintage trim. You can get one here. It's a larger version of the frames that I made for Water for Christmas.
And a it's a perfect backdrop for the happy snowmen.
Making the shutters were easy. Remove the slats from a old, broken blind.
Place the slats side by side. I chose to use seven for each shutter. Line up the slits.
Take another slat and lay it horizontally over the slits.
