Happy December, friends!
If your to-do list for this month looks
anything like mine...oh mama, let's
settle back with a glass of wine
and get inspired by some
fabulous holiday decor details.
I mean, sure the 3 bazillion lights
that cost you 12 hours,
an extension ladder,
and a visit to the ER
to illuminate your home out front
but so are little flickers of light
and love that help everyone
feel the magic of the season.
Inspiration No. 1
Float apples holding votives in an interesting urn or container.
Ever feel tired of the same ol' red and green?
Inspiration No. 2
Decorate with your favorite colors.
Here bits of turquoise and coral feel fresh and festive.
Want drama and a little bit of unexpected?
Inspiration No. 3
Varying sizes of crepey balls (not just for baby showers!)
combined with other textured spheres actually come off
looking both cool and elegant.
Lack room for a Christmas tree?
Inspiration No. 4
Alternative holiday trees are so fun to create!
Whitewash some branches and tuck them
into a silver vase before embellishing.
Feeling too overwhelmed to decorate a tree?
Inspiration No. 5
So don't decorate it.
There is a beauty a fresh-scented evergreen
brought inside exudes all on its own.
Like graphic statements?
How cool is this one?
Inspiration No. 6
Use a mix of letters and objects resembling letters
on a tabletop, mantel, or shelf.
Have some leftover wood lying around?
Inspiration No. 7
If you can make some saw cuts (or are friendly
with someone who can), this project takes only
a few nails and some imagination.
Candlelight never lets you down.
Inspiration No. 8
There is nothing quite like a simple smattering
of votives around the house, up the stairs, and
on a dresser.
Thinking small scores big.
Inspiration No. 9
Your tree doesn't have to tower to be magical.
In this case, the container matches the beauty
of its contents.
Don't overlook glass containers.
Inspiration No. 10
They make everything look special.
Even sand and branches!
Tuck little white lights, red apples, or lollipops inside.
Here's to an inspiring month of happy,
and I hope to see you in the shop soon!
