Sometimes it is the simple things that can turn a very regular item into chic home decor.
I bought these poinsettias on the end of the year 75% off clearance....I believe they were $5.00 a piece.
I'm not saying that bright shiny gold is a bad thing, but it just isn't the latest in the home decor fashion and sometimes it makes it look cheap. :-)
No worries though, I bought a chunk of burlap at a thrift store for .50 cents although I don't think it's very expensive in the fabric store. (especially if you an use a coupon!)
Simply wrap your poinsettias in burlap (use hot glue to hold it in place) and tie raffia around it to add a simple finish! VOILA!
Now about that Mistletoe ball.....it came with no decorations on it and a CHEESY red ribbon. I just hot glued some pinecones on it and some beads, threaded through a cut piece of burlap and it's very "chic" now :-)
So here's to a Christmas filled with Burlap, Hot Glue and Pinecones :-) Oh and Love, Peace and Joy ;-)
