I like to decorate for EVERY holiday! So, it's time to put some love on things. But I don't want to go completely Pepto on everything. I want to have a bit that can transition through the whole winter season.
I had some leftover snowflake ornaments that I got at the Dollar Tree along with just a few plastic Christmas balls that were white, pearly, and glittery. I had 1, just 1, BIG clear plastic snowflake. I originally bought that for the photo shoot with my grandson. But I realized that clear was not going to photograph well and I went with the white ones that were just perfect!!! I also have three large tall clear vases in my closet of things to use for parties and for decor. I had 3 small boxes with lids that were pink and red. One of the boxes is heart shaped. Those were the raw materials for my mantle decor.
Here is what I did with them:
First I filled the glass vase with the snowflakes and the Christmas balls making something reminiscent of the movie Frozen. Then I propped the large clear snowflake in front of it.
With just the one vase, it really is an impressive statement on the mantle.
Next, I simply added the little boxes turned on their sides. I wanted the bows on the lids to show. I think they look adorable! And, when Valentine's Day is over, they can easily be stored away leaving the vase to last the winter.
Easy, simple, and no glue gun needed!!!
