Decorate Your Angelic Statuettes for the Seasons...



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?...



Snowbirds...

Berry Christmas...


"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.




Here my friend Debra of Common Ground added a simple brown ribbon tied in a  bow with a beautiful cross to her maiden. At some point Debra découpaged a watercolour tissue paper onto the lower half of this bust and added an upturned collar ~ such a gorgeous way to hide any flaws in chalkware pieces!


  
Amber at Follow the Yellow Brick Home decorates her music room at Christmas time in grand style and here Beethoven dressed warmly for the holiday season and this holiday home tour in a nubby oatmeal muffler. Amber's farmhouse is just gorgeous and this post really shows off its grand beauty.


 An Old Angel and a Giveaway! | Edith & Evelyn


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 here 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.

From a shop I visited in California ~ Posies and Picket Fences.

  3. Oh how creative! Your statues are beautiful. I only have one statue on my front porch of a soldier...I think I will decorate him this holiday season! Other than that, I do decorate the deer head hanging on the wall!

    1. I hope you do decorate your soldier, Shelbee! I love that everyone now decorates their deer heads ~ they look lovely with Christmas decorations hanging around their necks like heavy bouquets of roses won at the Preakness or Kentucky Derby. <3

      Happy decorating,
      Barb :)
