Since we live in sunny California, a White Christmas is just a dream, but I wanted to create something that would give our home a White Christmas kind of feel. So, I secured a few manzanita branches in a plastic planter and used spray pant to make the branches white. After the paint dried, I gave the branches a quick coat of pearlescent paint.
Then, I placed the planter in a pretty, white tin and covered up the base with some fake snow. Pretty crystal ornaments and classic, silver ball ornaments completed the look.
This would be a great project for someone that doesn't have the room for a traditional Christmas tree.
I'm pretty sure that we'll be using this tree for Easter as well. Wouldn't it be beautiful with pretty Easter eggs hanging from it?
With our living room decorated in very traditional Christmas colors, we're changing things up in our dining room. This tree looks beautiful in a room filled with silvers and icy blues.
Shimmery and beautiful!
What colors are you using in your Christmas decor?
Year after year, we receive beautiful Christmas cards that we like to display throughout the holiday season. But what should we do with the Christmas cards from the years past? The genius that is Martha Stewart has shared these ideas with us.
If you are one of the many people with a non functional fireplace, then this post is for you! Heck, these ideas are so beautiful, you may want to use them, even if your fireplace does work.
Why not fill your fireplace with firewood? You won't be using it for a fire, but it sure does look cool.
Why not make your fireplace glow with a ton of candles?
How about using a variety of Christmas decor to decorate your fireplace? It looks like a Christmas forest in there!
The Robin's Nest
This one is my favorites. Today, Mary over at JPM Design featured this fireplace. Isn't it gorgeous? It has just enough shimmer and Christmas feel. This look could be easily duplicated by using a few old wine bottles as candle holders.
How do you decorate your fireplace for the holiday's? Do you enjoy a roaring fire? Or the flicker of candlelight?
