We spent a good part of Thanksgiving weekend putting up Christmas decor. But sometimes you just want something easy, fast and festive. And since you can't hang tinsel on Lindsay Lohan, I went a different route.
There just so happened to be empty wine bottles laying around the house. *hiccup* I thought about using this method to drill a hole in the back of each bottle, then decided that defeated the purpose of 'fast & easy.' So I just threaded cheapie 25-light sets down the neck of each bottle, and topped them with tiny candle wreaths.
How about that for a festive pop? I had a few more bottles, so the kids have one in each of their rooms, too.
My aunt has been doing this for years, but she uses a green bottle decorated with Santa stickers. Too cute.
I have these sitting near my kitchen sink, and they make me inexplicably happy. I have a feeling they'll remain there long after December 25.
Do you have any easy peasy decor ideas? I've gotten all techy, and created a new tab at the top of the blog with my Christmas Projects. Check it out! And don't forget, the Christmas Cheer Link Party continues tomorrow, with vignette's at Courtney's!
