Are you guys ready for Christmas?? I think it’s safe to say that I am not. . . I still have presents to make, in addition to wrapping. . . forget about decor because I still haven’t started on the cleaning that needs to be done before guests arrive!
I did manage to get 1 quick project in last weekend though. I’ve been working on our guest bathroom for some time and have been dreaming of ways to hang ‘bubbles’ above the shower.
I’ve been eyeing clear, plastic Christmas ornaments for about a year now but I never ran across any that were reasonably priced. A few weeks ago I just happened to be in Walmart and they had some for just $.88! They even come in 2 sizes!
To make your own ‘bubbles’ here’s what you’ll need:
- clear, plastic Christmas ornaments
- fishing line
- clear thumb tacks
Start by taking off the ‘top’ of each ornament. . .
. . .and remove the ‘cap’ so that you just have the hanger left..
Now you’re ornament, looks more like a bubble!
Using a long piece of fishing line, loop the line through each of the hangers.
Using your clear thumb tacks, hang each bubble above your shower at varying heights.*Hint* Putting your step ladder actually in your shower makes this task a lot easier!
Hang a few ornaments and it’ll start to take shape!
In order to vary the heights, you might have some extra fishing line. No problem, just trim it off when you’re done.
I hung 7 ornaments total but I think I’ll look for a few more small ones to balance it out.
I know this is risky to say, but my Under the Sea bathroom might actually be finished!
