Ornament Centerpiece

I decided to mix things up a bit with my Christmas decorations this year. This centerpiece and side pieces involve no crafting! I took the opportunity to create Christmas decor by coordinating the right colors and pieces. Plus I was able to find everything I needed at Target! Score!

Reindeer

The centerpiece is on a large glossy red tray. The main attraction is the reindeer- it has a perfect silver rustic finish(So I had to buy two!)

Side Pieces

My theme is all red, silver and grey. I used a combination of bulbs, ornaments, snowflakes, and pine cones.

Christmas Clothespins

It’s that time of year when the holiday cards start arriving! This year I decided I want to display each card and incorporate them as part of my Christmas decorations. The variation of the cards + the clothespin decoration combined to make an eye catching arrangement.

Shopping List:

  • Wooden clothespins
  • Christmas themed scrapbook paper by Martha Stewart
  • Snowflake buttons. I found mine at Michaels, called Dress It Up Sparkle Flakes.
  • Silver glitter paint. I used Craftsmart.
  • Paint brush
  • Tacky Glue

Start by painting each side of the clothespin with the silver glitter paint. Depending on how much sparkle you want, you may need a few coats.

Glitter Pins

Next, cut strips of scrapbook paper. Each piece should be the size of the flat surface of the clothespin. Glue two strips per clothes pin, one on each side, and let dry.

Scrapbook

The snowflakes I used are actually buttons, so I had to cut them down to make the back a smooth surface. Glue a snowflake on the top of each clothespin.

Snowflakes

Clip each card and hang from the garland.
