No, just frosting the cupboard...
I have these wonderful paper mache drippy icicles at the store and everyone is always asking me what to do with it and how to hang it. There are a few pieces hung in a cupboard at the shop but I thought I would do some at home on my beloved green cupboard in my dining room. I LOVE the way it turned out! I plan on keeping this up well past Christmas too.
The icicles are generously frosted with mica flakes that sparkle and glisten beautifully. I attached my pieces with spots of hot glue on the back. Now this is not something I would recommend to everyone unless you have a chippy, peely piece like mine. After the winter season when I remove them I am sure some paint will come with the glue but that will only add more farmhouse charm to this old girl.
If hot glue is not an option you can use velcro dots or 3M products. I also think you could use poster board fashioned into an 'L' bracket of sorts. Glue the snowy piece onto the poster board, to the bottom of the L if you will...then lay the large part of the L on your cupboard shelf. You would then need to anchor it with a heavy dish or prop.
I always fill the shelves with some of my vintage bulb collections. Last year I was inspired by Kevin Reiner's use of pink in his 2008 Country Living piece and my dining room was dripping with delicious Christmas candy pink from chandelier to table to cupboard. This year I decided pink would not be allowed as she stole the stage last year.
I let the cupboard choose what "dress" she wanted to put on for the party this year. While her main color is a sea foam green she has many layers. Gray, teal and cream all can be seen peeking out here and there so it was decided: silver, faded blues & greens, tarnished glitter and "dirty" ironstone. The petite ironstone teacup in the middle and on the right are sweet treasures I picked up from Linda Marcov at the 2009 Country Living Fair in Columbus, Ohio, the other from Lisa Marton of urban farmhouse. Each is holding a vintage feather tree glass ball.
I wish you all could stop by for a cup of steaming Christmas Coffee!!
