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.
