I’ll admit having a horse gate for a headboard can be a really cool thing at times, especially when it comes to seasonal decorating. Those hooks are a decorator’s dream!
And this is ultimately where my little button garland landed. And how a Christmas horse gate headboard all came to be.
How I did it
An evergreen garland is the easiest thing in the world to make. I tied together bough after bough with twine, then hung the works on the hooks.
Two ties on one branch were needed in some areas if I desired more overlap. This just better stabilized the garland for strength.
Accessorizing is the BEST part to any project I say. Most of these things were on the headboard already so adding greens was a pretty simplistic touch.
And no worries… the barbed wire is way high up, no danger of getting hurt. 🙂
The red ohio vintage license plate was perfect for this, drawing out the very colour I was after.
And there’s that button garland once again, looking cute as ever.
A work sock was pulled onto a sock form for a ‘stocking’. I like how casual it feels, which chimes in so well with this headboard.
Then the works received a light misting of spray snow, giving each piece a dreamy winter effect. I love it!
My bedding got changed out to white cottons I had on hand for an easy, clean different look.
And that cute little red pillow is very special. My son make it for me for my birthday one year with my Mom. It was his first sewing project and is made out of flannel. Adore. 🙂
This is all the decorating I did in the bedroom and it’s just enough for my little room.
