cheerful touches

December 14, 2011

It’s funny the things you remember from your childhood.  I remember doorknob decorations at Christmas.  Maybe the reason I remember them so vividly is because doorknobs were at my eye level.

Anyway, my mom made festive doorknob warmers and trappings with candy cane stripes, sequins and beads.

This extra layer of holiday cheer on a doorknob is a sure sign that Santa is on the way.

clockwise from upper left:

  • twine wreath embellished with a burlap flower
  • vintage buttons and red beads on a wire loop with a heart pendant
  • fabric scraps in a heart shape with a button drop

thanks so much for stopping by today🙂

    Diane, these door knob decorations are DARLING!

    As a kid, I remember my parents placing them on the knobs in our home too. However, they weren’t nearly as faaaaaaaaaabulous as these!

    So creative you are!

    Hope you had a lovely day, dear friend!

    X to you and Cristybella!

    Oh my goodness! Even your door knobs are adoringly loved! {Here’s a secret: I started decorating 3 weeks before Thanksgiving. Yep, still not done!} Thanks for sharing yet another great idea!

    Oh yes–definitely a childhood memory here, too.

    These are just too cute. And being a fan of buttons–I’m all about that one.
