There are three responses to a piece of design — yes, no, and WOW! WOW is the one to aim for.

QUICK AND EASY CHRISTMAS DECOR

HI!  Nerrida here.

 My kids made the annoucement the other day that our house didn’t look like Christmas…… so I had a brief moment of inspiration and saw that our coffee table could do with a little something.  I made both of these in half an hour each – they were so quick and easy! I urge you to have a go too if you’re house isn’t feeling Christmassy.

TABLE PIECE IN WHITE

 

I sprayed the centres of the Shimmers – Snow flowers with Mr Huey’s – Calico. The holly leaves are large rose leaves that I cut bits out of to make the holly leaf shape.

 

It was so easy after that – I just used double-sided foam dots to attach the Silver Bells and Marguerite red roses to the sides, then tucked 2 Taneisha flowers in each side of the Wishes flower at the front.

 

 

I really enjoyed making the first one so I had some more inspiration for a second one in teal.

TABLE PIECE IN TEAL.

 

 

This time I used the Wishes – Serenity flowers & Sugar and Spice in teal, and also a large doily instead of a cardstock circle as my base.

 

I loved the vibrant red of the Romance – Sweetheart flower, so I pulled the middle out of it and used it as a smaller flower for a filler.

 

I hope I have inspired you today to decorate your home for Christmas, to help everyone get into the spirit.
