It’s Christmas week y’all! Hope that phrase ignites more excitement than anxiety! Weeeee!
I finished up a few small projects to decorate my house for the Christmas season. And I thought it wasn’t too late to share them with you all!
The first is a Christmas Mantel Sign I had made previously for my mantel.
BLACK+DECKER saw it and had me recreate it for their blog. You can read all about how I made it by going over to blog.blackanddecker.com!
It would be a good project if you have little ones around the house.
Another very small thing I did was to fill my glass vase that usually stores wine corks with Christmas lights and ornaments.
I started with the empty vase.
Then I took a strand of battery-powered LED lights, turned them on, and wrapped the black box in tan tissue paper.
I didn’t realize until later that my lights were on a timer. Once you turn it on, they stay on for 6 hours. Then they’re off for 18 hours. Boo! So if your lights are like that, turn them on at 4 in the afternoon. They’ll be lit for the evening hours and turn off around bedtime!
Moving on, I got out some discount ornaments I bought during the after-Christmas sales last year.
I used them to fill this same vase, but without the lights. And trust me, lights are wayyy cooler!
The ornaments were added one by one, alternating between the red and gold. I also made sure the light strand was woven adequately. I didn’t want it all lumped on one side or hidden in the middle!
It’s a simple project, but adds a little Christmas cheer to the dining table! I set my vase on a mirrored tile with my little light bulb salt and pepper shakers.
And with that, I’ll leave you to enjoy your Christmas with your loved ones! May the peace of Christ be with you on His birthday!
