Fabric Decorated Candy Canes

Fabric Decorated Candy Canes

Do you ever find yourself wanting to make a simple but lovely Christmas decor but don't have much time? Who has time this time of year, right? 

Well, that was me yesterday. I wanted something, but had no time. I was cleaning my pantry (hoping to find room for baking supplies) when I found some candy canes. They might have been from last year. Yikes! They were still wrapped. 

What could I do with them to make them better and a pretty display as well.

Inexpensive Candy Garland

Last year I created some lollipop decor for Christmas. They were made from pool noodles. Here is one of them that I made and you can find all of the details to make these and more here.

This year I decided to make a candy garland to hang above the garage and of course I had to make some candies from pool noodles.

Grandinroad Hack - A Pallet Project

Just when I thought I was done with my decorating, I saw this picture in the Grandinroad magazine. These wooden boxes were calling me. How adorable,right? I could make these.

Bringing the Outdoors In

Thanksgiving is over and right around the corner is Christmas. I started to decorate for Christmas and I like to bring the outdoors in.

When we were in Vermont this summer, I found an old door screen that I bought. I also brought home some birch logs from my son's farm.

I hung the old screen in my lanai and cut the log into thin slices for making a Christmas sign.

Antique Fireplace Grate Decorated for Christmas

We have a working fireplace, but must admit that in thirteen years we have never had a fire. We just don't get that cold here in southern Florida. 

I purchased this Antique Cast Iron Fireplace Grate Log Holder Coal Box Mantle Insert with Fleur-De-Lis Pattern a number of years ago. My sister and I went to a barn sale and in the corner was this grate. Needless to say, I fell in love with it. When I asked the price, I almost fell over - $5.

Decorating cloudy old bottles

Do you have any old bottles that no matter how you clean them, they will not come clean? I have lots of those. I must admit, that I love them and use them the way they are, but if you would like to make them look better, then I have an idea for you. 

When you are done, yours could like this these.

Vintage Doilies Make JOY Banner

We all know that Christmas is a joyous time. The music, shopping, baking, decorating and wrapping presents. Not to mention parties and quests. I love this time of year. However, a slight twist was added. Instead of having Christmas here in Davie, we decided to have it at our home north of Orlando. No problem, until my daughter who is flying in from California said, "are you decorating the house"? Yikes! Both houses?

Usually, we just put up outside lights. Now I have to do the inside. I went through some of my decorations to see what I could use up there, since I had already decorated the house here, not much. I decided to make as many decorations as I could. I did not want to buy enough stuff for two homes. 

So this JOY banner was my first creation.

Last Minute Centerpiece

Need something on your side table, coffee table, or anywhere, why not create a cranberry candle centerpiece. I needed three for the round tables that we set up on our deck for our annual Christmas party. I knew I wanted candles, but didn't want to spend a lot and I didn't want them to take up too much room. 

I looked in my stash and the fridge to see what might work. This is what I came up with.

Chinese Light Bulbs?

Chinese light bulb
"Chinese"  Light Bulb

'Found these "Chinese" light bulbs many, many years ago. I thought they were really cool although I never tried to plug them in to see if they worked. 

I love to bring them out at Christmas in different arrangements. The paint is beginning to wear on them, some more than others.
