A lick of black spray paint and he's disco ready. I used Krylon Fusion paint and to turn Rudolph's hick cousin into Rudolph's chic cousin. I actually have two of these because things look better in pairs; well they do if you're slightly obsessive about symmetry like I am.

I picked up the reindeer at the dollar store, the trick is to keep your eyes peeled for intersting shapes and to group items in pairs or threes. I chose black paint (I happened to have some around), but any solid colour would work.

Grandma Generoux was so right.

You are so clever. I'm going to see if I can find some of these after I finish my kitchen re-do.
