Easy Christmas Vignette for Your Holiday Home Decor

I want to share with you all an easy Christmas vignette for your holiday home decor. 

Here is the before. 

For the holidays, I knew that I  wanted to use this in my art niche in my hallway. 

I have been using this bowl and three containers throughout my home for the year with different filler items. 

Here is the process video if you would like to see how this came together. 

I had this garland in my stash for a while and never used it. 

I decided to cut all of the pieces off of the rope and use them in one of the jars. 

I also saved the rope and used it to tie around each jar as well. 

Here are the supplies that I bought at Michael's on Black Friday. 

The red and gold berry garland is for filling the bowl around the jars and the red and gold balls are for the mason jar. 

I decided to cut this floral piece apart. 

I thought that I was going to use it in the milk jar, but it was too tall. 

I used some of the pieces in the milk jar and used the rest of the pieces around the bowl. 

Here is the completed vignette. 

I filled the two jars with the items off of the garland and the balls. 

I unraveled the red and gold berry garland and placed it around the jars. 

I filled in with greenery. 

I used the rope leftover from the garland and tied it around both jars. 

I love how pretty and festive this turned out!!!

These are pieces that you probably already have on hand. 

Take a look around your home and be inspired to create a easy, festive vignette. 

Thank you for looking. I hope that you will subscribe for future posts.

DIY - Making Your Own Wood Pedestal for Your Home Decor

In this post I just want to share with you how to make your own inexpensive wood pedestal for your home decor. 

I love using these in my home decor to add texture and height and to display candles, bowls, jars, etc. 

Here are some examples from Pinterest.

Country Christmas centerpiece - red - white - green - woodsy to formal. Great for wedding or holiday event.

Holiday layer cake served on a gorgeous wood pedestal.

Here is a picture of the two labels from the items that I bought for this project. 

There are different sizes and thicknesses that you can purchase for both the plank and birch pillar. 

I used a coupon on both items and it made this project cost around $16 compared to what you might pay for one already assembled. 

You will find these at Michael's on the unfinished wood aisle.

You will need some type of glue to glue both pieces together. 

We used Gorilla wood glue but you could use Fabri-Tac or a glue gun. 

Here are the two pieces before we glue them together. 

You just place a good amount of glue on the pillar. 

We went ahead and spread it out so that it wouldn't ooze over the sides. 

Then place your pillar on top.

 Make sure you center it and put something heavy on top of the pillar to hold it in place and let dry for a while.  

We let it dry for around four hours. 

Here it is dry and ready to decorate. 

I love having versatile pieces like this to use in my home decor. 

Here is a video sharing with you how we made this and how I decorated it for the holidays. 

Here are more pictures of it decorated on my table for Christmas. 

I used a candle ring and three faux candles for the top. 

The wreath form at the bottom is a wreath form wrapped with red tinsel yarn. 

I had also purchased a wood pedestal from World Market back in the fall and I decorated it for Christmas as well and have it sitting on my kitchen bar. 

You just can't go wrong with a wood pedestal for your home decor and by making one yourself, you don't have to spend a lot either. This is a nice piece that is going to last you a long time and can be moved around and used for various vignettes. 
I hope you enjoyed this post and will subscribe for future posts.
