Fill Your Containers with Christmas Ornaments
Christmas ball ornaments don’t just look fabulous on a tree, they pretty much look amazing no matter where you put them.
When decorating the Christmas tree, leave some extra ornaments to fill a dough bowl, bucket, basket, or vintage wooden crate for the perfect, yet simple, holiday vignette.
Another festive addition to this vignette would be spreading some twinkle lights around the ornaments and greenery.
A Bowl of Seasonal Fruit and Greenery Brings in Natural Elements
This, my friends, is one of the simplest winter decor ideas.
- Put seasonal fruit in a bowl, or really, in anything you want.
- Add a sprig or two of greenery from your backyard.
It doesn’t matter what fruit you choose to use. Pomegranates, oranges, apples, and pears will all look beautiful.
Another thing to remember is that you don’t have to use fresh fruit and greenery. You can use artificial or faux greenery and fruit options as well and your vignette will look just as lovely. There are some seriously realistic options to pick from these days.
Add Vintage Books to Your Vignette for Height
Vintage packages are such a simple way to add some holiday cheer to a vignette.
They add interest and are great for adding height to your Christmas decor.
Mix in Greenery, Pinecones, or Berries Into a Container
Adding a simple centerpiece to a kitchen table or creating a festive touch to a shelf or a coffee table can be so simple. Yet it’s a great way to bring in the winter holidays to your favorite space.
Branches from pine trees, eucalyptus, and rosemary are all a perfect choice when adding greenery to any container.
I personally don’t have a lot of red berries in my yard, so I tend to use faux berries. They add a much-needed pop of color to any holiday vignette.
Vintage Santa mugs are a festive way to add greenery and berries to your Christmas kitchen.
Adding pinecones is another great way to bring the outdoors inside for the holidays.
Assorted Nuts in a Bowl are as Easy as it Gets and Look Festive
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any easier, opening up a package of nuts and pouring them into a bowl definitely ranks up there as one of the easy ways you can create in less than 5 minutes.
Adding them to glass mason jars or containers would be lovely as well.
I hope these few simple ways of creating holiday vignettes in just 5 minutes have helped get you into the holiday spirit. Getting your home cozy and warm for the winter season can be so much fun when you use simple ideas like these.
