I’ve saved some good ideas just for that last-minute burst of inspiration:
I love taking dollar items and things I have and creating little Christmas inspirations!
Small wreaths from the Dollar Store and glass plates can make a really cute centerpiece:
The options are endless. Just stack a cake stand (or plate on top off glass) and add the wreaths. You can add red berries or small ornament balls around the wreath to make it even more festive!
A Spot of Color
Inexpensive glass/plastic ornaments in a bowl add a splash of color against my white dishes.
Bring the Snow Indoors
Grab a glass jar, hurricane or vase. I’m using the one from my dining room table.
Buy a can of spray snow. I got mine at Wal Mart for .99 cents.
Put stickers around the base of your glass jar. I used snowflake stickers.
Spray the snow on the bottom half of the glass, covering the stickers.
Carefully remove stickers after the ‘snow’ sets up some.
I added a candle and red berries and pretended that it’s snowing again in my part of Texas.
I saw these rub on decals at Wal Mart for a couple of dollars. I loved the damask design.
I thought they would make really elegant ornaments. I cut out a design (I had to use the small ones on the ornaments) and taped it to the surface.
I love the elegant feel this inexpensive project gave my funky silver tree in my dining room!
Adding fancy stickers to a plain ornament can really personalize it too.
Christmas Card Holder
I’ve never had a great place to stick my holiday greeting cards. I thought the little thrift store shutter propped on my dresser might work. I used screwed small cup hooks into the wood, punched holes in my cards and hung them!
I love how it looks. I think it will be a great place to feature my kid’s latest artwork after the holidays.
