These blue mason jars were a gift from my Meme (that’s southern for grandmother) and I use them all the time. I filled them with Smell of Christmas potpourri by Aromatique, an Arkansas company. I tied red ribbon leftover from other projects around them and placed this cute little trio on one end of the mantle.
Our stockings are hung by the chimney with care. I made Jed’s and mine, but ended up throwing the one I attempted for the Bear away in a fit of crafting rage last year (long story). You can read about how I made ours here.
For the wreath I took apart this spring wreath, spray painted it white, and wrapped it in aqua ribbon. I used pine cones that were already wired from my bouquet in Marci’s winter wedding, spray painted them white, and tied them with aqua and white ribbons. I attached three red jingle bells leftover from the Bear’s toddler friendly Christmas tree. I hung it with wide aqua ribbon.
I bought the joy sign at a yard sale a few years back, and the red and aqua Christmas balls were from after Christmas clearance years ago. I nestled them in aqua fine net tulle that I also used the last few years.
The red candles normally live in other spots around the house, but they look cute as a trio mirroring the trio of mason jars.
I carried the red and aqua theme into our bedroom by decorating another mini tree with leftover jingle bells and white ribbon.
I bow down in awe! Only a can of spray paint and 2 spools of ribbon to a achieve this holiday perfection? Well done Ma’am. Well done.
Hi Becca! Dropping by from SITS Sharefest! I LOVE frugality! From the looks of it, you did frugality WELL! Have a Merry Christmas!
I love your mantle! I tend to stick to red and green.
I am definitely a classic Christmas color kind of girl! 🙂 I absolutely LOVE your wreath and the glittery JOY letters! Looks gorgeous!
I love, love your color scheme! I tend to switch up color schemes every year. This year I decided to do red, purple, and gold. I love how it turned out. Visiting from SITS.
Very cute! Merry Christmas!
Super cute. We didn’t do much decorating around here this year, but hoping to change that in year’s to come. I’ve felt very inspired by so much I’ve seen.
You’ve done well with your mantle!
