I felt like a change this year….not the same old holiday decor that I have been using for years. And since none of my old stuff has any real sentimental value, I decided to try some new things….just for fun!
I started with my coffee table. It’s the centerpiece of my living room, so why shouldn’t it be Christmas-adorable?
I started with a furniture dolly that I bought at the flea market last summer. I plan to make it into a permanent coffee table, but it’s been sitting in the corner of my living room waiting for me to have time to do something with it. So I used it as a base for my holiday-licious table.
Then I cut up some heavy duty boxes. You know, the ones my husband makes me keep from appliances that we have had for over a year. My daughter, Hope, and I cut the boxes into sizes we needed to fit the space, then taped them together using duct tape.
Then I wrapped them in cute wrapping paper (that I bought at Target).
I used the glass top from our old coffee table and voila! A whole new holiday look!
Don’t you love it?! And all it cost was a few rolls of wrapping paper, which I have enough left to wrap quite a few presents.
Last year we made a candy cane fence for the front porch from a pallet….I love free Christmas decorations!
