Faux Shutters Christmas Decor ♦ Decor de Craciun cu Obloane False

These faux shutters are the coolest thing ever!
And (not) only because we've made them ourselves but because they can be easily and rapidly integrated into any decor or can become a pretty decor themselves. We just added a Christmas inspired sign, our Shabby White candle holders and the wooden ice skates we've made the other days and managed to turn a pretty boring corner into a lovely winter setting.
Obloanele astea false sunt cele mai dragute chestii ever!
Si nu (numai) pentru ca le-am facut noi ci pentru ca pot fi integrate cu usurinta si rapiditate in orice decor sau pot deveni, chiar ele, un decor frumos.Am adaugat o placuta inspirata din cantecele de Craciun, sfesnicele Shabby White si patinele din lemn, realizate zilele trecute, si am transformat imediat un colt plictisitor intr-un frumos decor de iarna.

Each shutter was made from 3 pieces of wood of 65 cm*8 cm and 2 pieces of 24 cm*8 cm
that we cut, painted and then distressed real well.
Fiecare oblon a fost realizat din cate 3 stinghii de lemn avand 65 cm*8 cm si doua stinghii avand 24 cm**8 cm pe care le-am taiat, le-am vopsit si apoi le-am invechit bine de tot.

The best part is that we can use them all year around, not only for Christmas, we just have to use our imagination and decorate them with specific items from every season.
Cea mai buna chestie e ca obloanele pot fi folosite cu usurinta in orice perioada a anului,
nu doar de Craciun, trebuie doar sa ne punem imaginatia la treaba si sa le decoram cu lucruri specifice fiecarui anotimp.

The other days, for example, right in the middle of our Christmas decorating,
the last of the most-beautiful-and-scented-roses from our garden gave us the idea of creating a special summer(ish) corner in our working area. Isn't this just pretty? :)
{If you are one of our followers, you must have already seen them
on Instagram or Facebook
Zilele trecute, de exemplu, in toiul pregatirilor de Craciun, cei-mai-frumosi-si-mai-parfumati trandafiri proaspeti din gradina ne-au dat ideea de a realiza rapid in atelier un coltisor asa, mai de vara. Nu-i asa ca e frumos? :)

Furthermore each shutter can be easily turned into a Candy Bar setting or a photo backdrop for taking pictures or for anything else that we can think of.
Or why not completely transform it into something new - maybe a large tray that we can use to serve cinnamon cookies and coffee with extra milk to our loved ones?:)   
 Plus ca fiecare oblon se poate transforma super rapid intr-un fundal pentru Candy Bar sau unul pentru realizarea pozelor sau pentru orice altceva ne trece prin minte.
Sau, de ce sa nu-l transformam in ceva complet nou - poate o tava incapatoare,
perfecta pentru a servi prajituri cu scortisoara si cafea cu muuuult lapte celor dragi! :)

 Revenind la spiritul Craciunului, am realizat multe proiecte frumoase pe care vrem neaparat sa vi le aratam zilele astea, asa ca stati pe-aproape! :)

Nu uitati sa zambiti!

Shabby White Candle Holders ♦ Suporturi Shabby White pentru lumanari

We can never have too many candles that could add a little bit of refinement
to our homes, don't you think? :)
Especially now that Christmas is just around the corner and we have already started
to look for beautiful and original ideas to decorate our homes. 
I must confess that I have a thing for candles and I usually buy candle holders or small recipients and lots of different shapes and sizes candles, especially scented ones that I love to light around the house when spending some relaxing time with  family.
So this year we've created in our Dreams Factory some lovely elegant handmade candle holders that can be easily integrated into any decor, whether it is a Christmas decor
or a regular all-year-long one.

Parca nu avem niciodata destule lumanari, sfesnice sau tot felul de suporturi de lumanari, 
care sa adauge un strop de rafinament caselor noastre, nu vi se pare? :)
Mai ales acum, cand  Craciunul se apropie cu pasi repezi si incepem deja
sa cautam idei cat mai frumoase si originale pentru a decora prin casa.
Eu una recunosc ca am facut o pasiune pentru lumanari si-mi iau, ori de cate ori am ocazia, sfesnice, suporturi si multeee lumanari, de diferite forme si dimensiuni, mai ales parfumate, pe care le aprind de obicei seara, cand ne relaxam in familie.
Asa ca anul acesta am creat in Fabricuta de Vise niste sfesnice handmade elegante si frumoase, care pot fi integrate in orice decor, fie ca e unul de Craciun sau unul obisnuit, in-orice-perioada-a-anului.

Shabby White Candle Holders ♦ Suporturi Shabby White pentru lumanari

I really loved the silhouette of this Ikea candles stick holder and decided to use it as a model.
Pentru ca imi place la nebunie forma acestui sfesnic de la Ikea, am hotarat sa-l folosesc ca si model.
So we've made a stencil out of it, cut a few shapes from MDF (with a hand jigsaw) to which
we glued a round base and a top.
Afterwards we painted our candle holders adding a little bit 
of extra chicness ... Shabby Chicness, of course! :)
Ne-am facut un sablon, am decupat cateva forme din MDF, cu ajutorul unui fierastrau vertical, de mana si le-am lipit niste suporturi rotunde, sus si jos.
Apoi le-am pictat si am adaugat un strop de chic ... Shabby Chic, bineinteles :)

Love the final result, what do you think about our handmade candle holders
with Shabby Chic touches? Are you a candle lover as well? :)
Imi place la nebunie rezultatul final, voua cum vi se par suporturile nostre handmade,
cu aer Shabby Chic? Sunteti sau nu iubitori de lumanari decorative, in general?:)
