Before I show you this fun and easy wreath I created and some few remaining Christmas decorations, I’d like to thank you all again for your sweet, kind comments regarding the loss of our grandmother! We were overwhelmed by all of your care and concern. It mean more to us than you could know! We are looking forward to all being together in a few days, to celebrate her life.
I first showed a glimpse of this fun wreath when I revealed my dining room decorated for Christmas. I wish my photography could do this wreath justice because it really turned out great! Every year I place lighted wreaths in our front windows, but this year I wanted white ones in the dining room, and I didn’t want to spend a lot.
While shopping at Michael’s I came across this fun white and silver snowflake tinsel, which was very inexpensive at 50% off. I didn’t want to purchase wreath forms, so I dug up some old worn out pool noodles and cut one in half to use as the two wreath forms. Here’s a tutorial collage to see how really simple it is to put these wreaths together.
And here they are hanging in my dining room windows…during the day
and at night…
I mentioned in my Christmas in the Kitchen post that I had found these great silver pedestal trays at The Goodwill. I used the smaller one under my kitchen Christmas tree.
The second larger one I used for my coffee table centerpiece
I filled it with pillar candles of varying heights and layered in ornaments and beads
Here you can see the beautiful details of the tray
I added a DIY Dollar Tree hurricane and a footed glass bowl that I picked up at the Goodwill for a dollar.
I placed my cherished crystal Precious Moments nativity on a small ceiling medallion painted gold and fitted with a round mirror and placed atop a gold candle base from the Dollar Tree. Our dad gave both Vanessa and I these nativities one Christmas, and they are a special part of both of our Christmas decorating.
A sweet friend brought me the gorgeous pink and cream Poinsettia that I placed in clearance flower pot. I love how my coffee table turned out and find the color palette soothing and fresh!
One other fun project I created for my living room is my Christmas Card Tree. I added some painted branches to a plastic urn I painted silver and filled the base with ornaments.
I placed tiny clothes pins in a piece of vintage stemware and as the cards come in I can pin them to the tree.
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing some of my additional Christmas projects.
