Mini Shelf Decorations!!!I

I'm in the process of decorating my room, and I had this little picture frame and shelf set that I didn't know what to do with the shelves. I made mini decor!!!

I started out with this white butcher twine, and didn't like the color.

So I dyed it with a coffee and tea mixture. I love how it turned out because the color wasn't even but BEAUTIFUL!!

I used a hot glue gun to glue it to a Caltrate bottle to make a mini vase. I threw some green stuff in there from my craft stash, and I love love love it!

I also made some mini decorative balls by gluing twine to tiny styrofoam balls! They're in my hand so that you get an idea of the size!

Here's the total effect. I might still try to find something for the balls to go in, right now they're on a small candle holder.

And for size and effect, a shot of them with the centre picture frame. The picture of my sister and me is an 8x10.

Thanks for looking, I had fun!
