Christmas Decor DIY

The last couple Christmas we had were pretty plain because I just wasn't in the spirit to fuss with the decoration. This year, my sister passed down her Christmas tree to us before moving so we put it up and all of a sudden I just had this urge to decorate. I got most of my stuff from Michaels, Wal-Mart, and the Dollar Tree store.

This coffee table center piece consist of a glass fish bowl filled with ornaments, glittery balls, and pine cones at the bottom. On top, I filled it up with poinsettia flowers, red and white, and added some winter berry branches. I also found some LED light strings that are battery operated at Wal-Mart and swirled the lights around the flowers and voila! Super pretty and glowy center piece!

Mason Jar lights was also pretty easy to do. I found these green colored mason jars at Wal-Mart. Purchased the colorful battery operated LED lights and just put it inside the jar and turned them on.

I did another centerpiece that I placed on the table behind the sofa. For this one, I purchased the tall glass vase from TJ Maxx and filled it up with ornaments. Adorned the top with a bow.
The branches are super pretty and sparkly. I got these from Michaels, along with some twirly glittery strands. I also put some LED lights around the branches, although they are hard to spot on the picture. Lasly, I hung some glittery snow flakes on the branches. 

If you have an empty bottle of wine, don't toss it out. They come in handy for decorations. I filled this one with fake snow and LED lights. Added a poinsettia, winter berries, and decorative branches. Finished the look with an ornament hanging at the bottle neck. 

This would make a nice gift. I got these smaller mason jars from Michaels. Hot glued white lace and red ribbons around the rim and added a flower and tea light candle. Super quick and easy! 

Mason Jar snow globe was one of my favorite projects! I bought a set of snowman salt and pepper shakers and they fit perfectly in these jars. They're so easy to do. You can find those mini pine trees at Wal-Mart and Michaels.

And lastly, these are also super easy. I found a few bunches of holiday bouquet like these and mini garden pots from Michaels. Just trim the stem and hot glue it to the pot and that's it!
