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.
