A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas 2019 – Day 11
It’s getting really close to the end of my 12 Days of Christmas 2019. I hope you have been following along and enjoying my Pinterest Inspired ideas so far (links to projects can be found at the end of this post).
This is Day 11 and today’s post will be about using Chalk Couture products to make one of a kind Christmas decor. Click on the link to go to my website https://www.chalkcouture.ca/awandafulthing where you can find all the pastes and transfers used in these projects.
I upcycled two thrift store serving trays. The first tray is made of wood and rattan. Normally I would paint a tray like this but decided to leave it as it was as I hoped the red Chalk paste would be a nice accent.
I used my “merry” transfer and candy apple red chalk paste. I was very pleased with the bright red against the wood grain. I like the understated elegant simplicity of it.

A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas 2017 – Day 11
Welcome to Day 11 of my 12 Days of Christmas 2017. I am so glad you are here. If you have been following along for the 12 Days of Christmas 2017 posts you know that the theme of my 12 posts are about either thrifted, gifted or vintage Christmas presents that I am giving this year.
Today’s gift is a thrifted decorative sleigh filled with new and vintage items for a coffee or tea lover or both.
I found two of these decorative sleighs at a local thrift store for $1.25 (for both). I am currently using the larger one to hold the TV and DVD remotes on my side table as I am forever misplacing them. Oops, I digressed.
It would look great filled with Lindt chocolates, maybe the recipient will use it for a candy dish after they consume the tea, coffee and Swiss chocolates.
I found two cute vintage glass tea bag holders and a set of “tea” tongs. I added a few Keuriq cups and a box of Peppermint tea and filled in the gaps with Swiss chocolate.
I think this is the perfect gift for anyone on your list that enjoys, coffee, tea and chocolate.
It’s been a great deal of fun showing you all the gifts I am giving this year, and I can’t wait to show you the final day tomorrow – be sure to come back for Day 12.
Here is a recap from what you may have missed along with links to all the Wandaful Things I created last year (2016).
