DIY “Vintage” Christmas Car

Maybe you won’t be very happy with my idea, but I like to redo things. I have a major addiction to checking the clearance isle every-single-time I’m at Marshalls. I consider this pretty exciting, ask my husband and he probably won’t agree (wink!). The last time I checked, I spotted this adorable vintage-looking car! Better yet, it only had a $7 price tag, score!

Although the copper and black appearance is appealing, it wouldn’t match with my Christmas decor enough.

I used clay/chalk paint so it dried quick and I could move right on to the next step! I grabbed a bottle brush tree, I snagged from the dollar store, last year and simply anchored it in place using some red and white bakers twine.
