I don’t have a lot to share this week. My decorations are still sitting half in/half out of containers around the house! Hopefully by next week, I’ll have some pretty holiday DIY projects completed, another tree up and decorated and our entire home will be all set for Christmas.
I wanted a rustic/natural looking winter centerpiece for my new barn wood trestle table (new table = another minor DIY project/reno in the works).
Materials are mostly things I already had:
Faux snow (the only thing I purchased)
I put together a centerpiece that turned out to be exactly what I was looking for.
I plan on adding some DIY mercury glass bulbs to give it a Christmas touch but this is what I’ll use through the winter, even after Christmas is over.
Edit! I gave my centerpiece a little more Christmas spirit. I added some ornaments and different pine tree clippings to fill the room with a Christmas-pine scent. 🙂 Lots of pictures. I just love it.
(This is Not holiday related, except that it feels like a gift when I get time to work on something “fun” and DIY-related! If you haven’t seen them, I have sneak peeks of the progress of my painted bathroom floor! HERE!)

The wreath is beautiful! I wish I had time to do things like that. 🙂 We got our tree up today, finally. The girls decorated it, so I have to wait till tomorrow to spread the ornaments out! lol Be sure to give some more details on that floor. I'm really interested in trying that here. Hugs!
Love that centerpiece, Roeshel!
