Decorating for the Christmas Holiday

We've been busy decorating the house for Christmas and having some fun making up some whimsical decorations.
This is our mantle so far. It contains my beloved vintage jewelry tree and some bits and bobs of holiday bulbs.
A special small selection, the old iron cross was a present from my sister Jody last year, the paper mache cross in the background is a creation I made which I displayed with peacock feathers framing it.

The following are a few snaps of  an easy display project for you crafty people out there. Take some old bottles and fill them with tinsel or holiday decor and display them with other festive offerings.

For this one we just snipped some ends off some vintage tinsel garland and put inside the bottles. Also clipped the balls off the bubble spray and loaded them into a bottle as well.

And voila, you have some colorful and festive decorations.

I added another taller bottle with some vintage strung holiday beads and added the holiday salt and pepper shakers to make a lovely display. Cute right?

Here's another bell collection we put into a star shaped bowl and laid upon a vintage linen. How do you decorate for the holidays? Tomorrow we'll look at the Christmas tree trimmings. Hope you are having fun with your holiday decor.
