My Christmas decor idea is super easy and is perfect for a shelf, mantel, or a centerpiece on a table. I used a galvanized basket with snow flakes cut out, and I absolutely love it. I would seriously galvanize my family if that was an option. It is certainly one of my favorite decor finishes right now! But anyways…you need a basket, a cheap wreath, some oversized Christmas balls, and a battery operated string of lights. I bought all of my items at Michael’s, but you could find most of these supplies anywhere.
I used one of my favorite tricks for adding greenery to decor here. I bought one of those cheap 4.99 wreaths at Michael’s, used a 50 percent off coupon, and got it for less than three bucks. I then use super strong scissors to cut through one piece of the wreath and then you have a small piece of greenery. It is the perfect size for lining baskets and is so inexpensive. Of course, real greenery would be best here, but I am allergic to everything, so I try to keep most of my greenery fake.
I arranged my greenery in the bottom of the basket and then weaved in a small string of battery operated lights. I hid the battery pack under the greenery. I then topped it all off with some oversized red and silver Christmas balls. They look beautiful with the lights shining out from underneath them! (use your imagination, I couldn’t get a shot of the lights in the dark!)
I have this basket sitting on a bench, but I think it would look great on top of a table runner on a dining room table or sitting in the middle of a mantle. Once Christmas is over, I can still use the basket and greenery. I love Christmas decor that can be repurposed into winter decor. January through March are such awkward months for decorating and I love when I find pretty snowflake pieces that can last all winter.
I hope you’re feeling the holiday spirit just as much as we are! Be sure to keep popping by the other bloggers throughout the 12 days!
