Christmas Out-of-the-Box: Pink, Green & White
At Christmas time my home is filled with all the reds, greens, silvers & golds that represent the holiday season. I really love Christmas colors. But this year, I wanted one room that represented two colors that I love all season long…pink, light green, and white.
This is a simple craft, but I just had to share because I love how it turned out!
Each room in my house has gray walls and a specific pop of color. For example, my family room & kitchen has a pop of teal, my master bedroom has a pop of blue, and my dining room has a pop of pink. I love my dining room, so....I decided that this Christmas I would decorate it with the elegant pinks and greens that I love so much and that match the decor of the room.
These are the pictures of my dining room before Christmas decorations....lots of pink! (By the way, besides my craft room, it's the only room in the house that I am allowed to have girly colors thanks to all the males in my house).
Anyhow, I had a vision in my mind so my first order of business was to find bottle brush trees to add to my centerpiece. I found them at Target and the best part about it….they were very inexpensive. I found them in the “dollar section” of Target and they ranged from $1.00 to $3.00. Total cost = $12.00.
Next, I bought beads at Michael's for $4.99 to decorate my trees and used other beads and ribbons that I already had.
I also knew that I wanted to use some other pink and glass Christmas ornaments that I picked up at an estate sale last year. The entire lot was around $8.00 and some of the pieces are really pretty. Here are the ornaments in my estate sale find (I love the glass Nativity ornament):
First, I decorated the bottle brush trees using the beads, ribbons, and my hot glue gun…I didn't want to add too much because I felt like the trees were pretty even without the beads and ribbons.
Once I finished the trees, I started displaying my new favorite Christmas decorations around my dining room. I focused mainly on my centerpiece but added various touches around the room. Very simple, but I love how it turned out.
In my opinion Christmas doesn’t always have to be red and green....it can be pink, light green and white, too! Merry Christmas!
