It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here! Red, and merry, and bright.
I purchased a couple of sparkly ornaments and bows from the Dollar Tree but other than that I had all the other items on hand. Whatever your color scheme is walk around your house and pull everything that has the right colors. You might be surprised what you can find before you have to go and buy something.
A white candle wrapped in red ribbon – easy! And the “snow” behind the wooden sign..it’s left over pillow stuffing! And it’s not the last you’ll see of the batting, I’ve got another craft or two where I’ve put it to use.
The sofa table also got the full red and white makeover. My favorite part is the square bins. If you’ve seen my table before in other decor posts you might remember they are in various shades of brown. With some white wrapping paper and red bows from the Dollar Tree, and polka dot ribbon from Joann’s they are perfect!
A red scarf serves as a table runner to display a few simple objects. The white nativity is one in our collection. Every year my husband and I go out and buy a new nativity to add. We usually make a whole day out of it listening to Christmas carols, drinking hot chocolate, and looking at holiday lights. I plan to carry this tradition on when we have children but wrapping up the nativity to put underneath the Christmas tree. Then when it is time to open presents that will be the first present we open followed by the reading of the Christmas story. I hope it will help us keep the true meaning of Christmas in our minds as we enjoy the presents we’ve received that year.
