Quick, Cheap and Cheerful Xmas Decor
If you were to take a snapshot of my daily life right now you might find me reading stories, changing newborn diapers, or cajoling a certain toddler into the car so we’re not late for nursery school.
Basically, when it comes to holiday decor, if I can’t do it with one hand, in under 5 minutes, then it’s not happening.
Hence my current obsession with “ornament decorating”. What is ornament decorating, you ask? Take a bowl or a vase and pile in a bunch of ornaments. I know, pathetic. But hey – it doesn’t look half bad!
Here are some “cheap and cheerful” ornaments I nabbed at Kmart in 2006, piled quickly into glass hurricanes. I really like the unexpected colors not usually associated with Christmas. And they actually match my Chiang Mai pillows pretty well~
Another pile of cheap and cheerful ornaments, fresh from Costco. The garland I bought at the last minute from the grocery store!
More ornaments, more piling…
And there you have it – a house ready for Christmas! Sort of.
