Use What You Have

Tie a bow on something...............

Country Living

(or hang a gift tag - see the bird gift-tag inside the cage?)

Paint some pinecones..........

Country Living

You don't have to own a cloche - use your cake stand and lid !!!

Martha Stewart

Remember my trifle bowl that I "transformed" with pinecones, fir, and ornament balls?.......

Wrap presents early (I hear some people do that) and place them in groups in various places.

Country Home

Do you have a large branch in your backyard?

Country Living

What is that I hear? Oh, that is my husband screaming
from his office, downtown.
(hmm.... maybe, if I can get the branch up before he gets home..............)

Those are all wonderful ideas. I been meaning to pull out my trifle to decorate for Christmas, but I've been busy doing other things. Thanks for the inspiration! I'll have to file it away fro next year.

Cindy said...

I love it all! I could even do pinecones in white like that!

Terry said...

The tree on a table has been my goal for a long time. But the lady of the house isn't ready to downsize the tree yet. (You're going to refill your trifle bowl with a trifle, soon, right?)

Southern Aspirations said...

GREAT easy-peasy cheepie ideas. I want to pull together the weeping willow branches in the backyard but haven't managed it yet... too many DIY projects. ;-)

Lizzie said...

Awww..what great ideas! I love the pinecones and the baubles hanging from the staircase. (And I LOVE LOVE LOVE your staircase, too.) :)

Happy Holiday!

Oh my...these are wonderful ideas. How pretty is that branch with the bulbs hanging from it?! Thank you for the much needed inspiration.

Cindy said...

FAbulous inspiration images...I think I've cut all those out of my magazines and have them stuffed in a folder somewhere. Hmmmmm. Love your trifle bowl decor :)

"I hear some people do that" - ahhh that made me laugh. I would certainly not be one of those people. :)
