We are excited to share with you today some simple Holiday decorations that we created for a Handmade Holiday Event.
These ideas incorporate a little bit of shabby chic and a vintage Christmas style. Our inspiration started with the pink flower on the wreath we picked up at Michaels. And we just ran with it. Please feel welcome to incorporate these ideas with whatever color scheme you have going for your Holiday decorating.
We started with a white foam wreath and adhered these sparkly glitter balls to. Wanna know a little SECRET? Have you ever heard of Foam hot glue sticks? They work amazing and without melting the foam! They are compatible with a low-temp glue gun. Keep in mind, the foam glue sticks are a little different than just a regular low- temp glue stick, they are specific for FOAM.
We adore the painted banner plaque, from The Wood Connection, as the centerpiece. Adding a vintage card with a little glitter really added character too!

These 17″ numbers, from the Wood Connection, are bold and bring the anticipation of Christmas day excitement.
We love the word WISH to bring that magic in Christmas. It’s a good versatile word and would be fun for an upcoming birthday too.

Were did we get our Acorns? At our local park! The lids fell off the tree separately and it was super simple to hot glue the tops on and glue and glitter the bottoms.
