Christmas is just one week away! Although I’ve been busy decorating and shopping, I never forget the true meaning of Christmas and the celebration of Christ’s birth … God’s greatest gift to the world! I like to think the creative expression of decorating is a reflection of God’s creative nature. After all, if we’re made in God’s image and God is creative, it follows that each one of us is creative in some way, shape or form. In celebration of that creativity, I’m sharing some of my favorite Christmas vignettes with you .
This ironstone bowl filled with vintage Christmas ornaments is one of my favorite photos from this year’s Christmas home tour. I’ve been collecting these ornaments for years. My flocked Christmas tree is in the background with the lights twinkling brightly.
I’m not going to want to put these back in a box once Christmas is over.
Another garland I love is my DIY pine cone garland. I gave this one to my daughter.
If you read my blog regularly you already know I love these paper clay figurines.
I love their touches of sparkle. For me, Christmas is all about the magic and sparkle!
I love glitter houses too! On my holiday mantel I pair them with glittery garland and bottle brush trees.
Earlier this month I transformed a plain cigar box into this snowy Christmas scene.
A collection of bottle brush trees creates a miniature winter wonderland!
A few years ago I created this trio of boxwood wreaths for the built-in cupboard in my farmhouse kitchen.
I included the tutorial so you can make some of your own!
Also in the kitchen, a simple glass bead garland festoons the open shelving with ironstone pitchers and just a bit of greenery. A few vintage ornaments and a mini Christmas tree tucked in a bowl complete the Christmas vignette.
This easy vignette is from last year’s Christmas home tour.
Coincidentally, this vintage black mirror was found at a Christmas market last year. I hung a little boxwood wreath on it with peppermint stripe ribbon. The mirror reflects the mason jar candles lining the steps in my old farmhouse.
Last year I bought this set of red and white nesting bowls to use for Christmas decorating.
I filled them with my pink, white, and silver vintage ornaments.
Hope you were able to find some last-minute inspiration from my favorite Christmas vignettes!
