I love Christmas and decorating the house, but I have never really liked the holiday decor that we own very much. I decided to do a little makeover of it this year, so I looked through Pinterest and found some ideas I really liked as well as created some of my own....
Remember my post of the Autumn candles? Well, here is the change I made to create a Christmas candle set. I put a shot glass in the bottom as a space-filler, and then added the red hots. A little glitter green ribbon, some holly berries I already had, and white peppermint candles from the Dollar Tree. That's it. Super simple.
I originally made them for our mantle, but then decided to move them to
our coffee table. I arranged them in a circular pattern so that it is
pretty on all sides AND it hides the ribbon knots in the back.
My mom and I also made a smaller version of these with votives. She gave them as favors at a church function.
The family initial inside a wreath was an idea I saw on Pinterest that I really liked. I was planning to make a wreath, but then I saw this one at Target and loved it. I looks like scarves or socks that are wrapped around Styrofoam balls and then glued to a Styrofoam wreath. All I had to do after finding this wreath was spray paint the "C" in green glitter. Easy-peezy.
This will conclude Part I of my Christmas decor post. Stay tuned for Part II!!
