Numbered Bling

Here is what I did with the numbered wood pieces I showed you a couple of posts back.





I found an incomplete box of vintage dominoes  at a garage sale earlier this year.








I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them at the time.  However, when I came across them last week,  I immediately saw potential tags/Christmas ornaments.  So, I drilled a hole, and blasted them with glitter spray.  I attached twine from some price tags I had.




The colors are very festive, made even more so with a bit of sparkle.





Tags, ornaments, even just hanging in a row.








I've been adding a little bling to quite a few things for Christmas.  I think I may have too many ideas swirling in my head.  I'll be sharing.  See ya soon.

That is over the top vintage goodness.

Those would be cute with a retro style Christmas theme. I love that idea as Christmas ornaments or even garland. They could be used on a kids tree too since they have numbers.
