My daughter is in a local production of The Nutcracker this entire week and it has gotten me in the mood for pulling out my Christmas Decor…and a nap. I usually wait until the day after Thanksgiving to put out all of our Christmas Decor so that Thanksgiving doesn’t get lost in the shuffle.
If you remember…last Christmas we were knee deep in a kitchen demolition and so the Christmas decor was pathetic. I did manage to put up a tree and the stockings…but that was about it. It felt sad…but I couldn’t stand the thought of the construction dust everywhere. So I am jumping at the bit to get all that Christmasy goodness out this year!
So I took that Thanksgiving Table Centerpiece and decided to make a Christmas Version! It couldn’t be simpler. You will need some sort of box or plantar, or you can make a wooden box using the tutorial I shared last week (for those of you who are new here).
Then take some Spanish Moss or other filler and place in the bottom of your box.
*BE CAREFUL WHEN USING WITH CANDLES AS THE MOSS IS DRY AND FLAMMABLE. NEVER LEAVE A BURNING CANDLE UNATTENDED.
Then take some berry garlands and tuck them into the edges of the boxes and hide the wires under the moss. I used a couple of different garlands for this. A white one and a silver one. I found both of them in the Christmas section of Hobby Lobby.
Throw in some fun colored “fuzzy balls” (yes…that is what they were called) and a couple of candles and you have a lovely centerpiece for the middle of your Christmas Table. I like that it is also low and doesn’t intrude on your table space or block your view of your guests and gives you plenty of room for that giant plate of Christmas Ham!
This is a really easy way to add some fun, festive Christmas Decor to your home to help you celebrate.
