I love using what I have already. It's not that I don't like to spend money (just ask my husband!) but I like to spend money when I have to. Not today, oh, not today....
I think Poinsettia flowers are lovely. I have children, so I know there is a lot of back and forth on how safe they are around them and pets and so on... Plus I don't like buying them every year, so a few years back during an after Christmas sale I bought 6 fake picks of the flower. I didn't mind because they were pretty and cheap!! I used them in my tree for pops of color during the Christmas season. Well, that gets old after a couple of years and they needed a revamp. I couldn't part with them, but wanted to find a great place for them.... I think this is it:
Please don't look at the safegaurd bumper for the fireplace! I reused one of the 18 inch caddies from here , used two floral foams and stuck the poinsettias in there. All free, totally easy and completely portable. This can be a centerpiece during our Christmas meal or moved around where a little pretty is needed.
I am so glad I was able to get a new-ish Christmas decoration that looks really nice! What would you re-use and make new this Christmas season?
