Using household items as Christmas decor
using inexpensive household items as Christmas decor. Laura's post gives lots of wonderful information and ideas for doing just that.
As I was considering what photo of my own I might use to illustrate this post, it struck me that the one above would be just about perfect. I'm not sure that Laura mentions any of the items I used in the vignette above, but I definitely did use ordinary household items in putting it together.
That's a dish towel underneath it all. Red and white, though you can't see that in the sepia toned photo. There's a cookbook, an oversized teacup filled with cookie cutters, a milk bottle filled with salt, a mini cutting board, a child's rolling pin, a recipe from a friend. To me this is so much fun -- just looking around my house to see what I can put together for a vignette.
Some of the household items Laura suggests are: twine, epsom salt, mason jars, chalk, clothespins, wrapping paper, kraft paper, and more. You'll find many great ideas for using these things in Christmas decor over at The Turquoise Home, so head on over and enjoy!
