(1) The other day walking into Target, I spotted these $3 foot-tall gold tin pails that I thought would make festive centerpieces. When I returned home, I found these little faux boxwood balls I already had, made some red bows and put them together (as a set of 3) on our dining room table. I think they turned out pretty cute! I just scattered some gold pinecones and candles around and our table is done! I also think this would be cute with a black and white canopy striped runner....
(2) The second picture is a DIY holiday sign I made after seeing something similar (but in all neutral colors) at a local holiday market. I bought a burlap canvas and wood letters, spray painted them gold and glued them to the canvas. Then, I glued some red polka dot ribbon and attached a red velvet bow for hanging. The only tricky part was the canvas's lack of hardware, so I just hammered two saw-tooth metal pieces from Michaels to the back and tied the ribbon to each.
(3) The bottom photo of the Advent Calendar is the project I just completed. I was pretty happy with the outcome. See my prior blog post, 10 Favorite Advent Calendar Ideas... for more inspiration.
