I was going to title this post “Got Balls?” ~ then I thought better of it.
As you can see, I called it ~ Simple Easy Christmas Decor.
And that is what it is all about.
I am sharing this post as part of the Ten Minute Decorating Team.
Our Ten Minute Decorating posts are really terrific, don’t you think?
Beauty, creativity, and now holiday cheer all over your house, in less time than it takes to wrap one gift.
Go grab a box of Christmas balls & let’s get rolling!
Simple Easy Christmas Decor
The easiest & fastest way to decorate with a box of Christmas balls is to pour them all into a pretty bowl.
Gotta love a one step tutorial
Here are about 15 of my Shiny Brites in a crystal bowl.
I love Shiny Brites and like to showcase them this way instead of tucked in the tree.
Do you know the history of these vintage ornaments? Read here to learn.
But no need for vintage ornaments, any will do really. Massed in a bowl gives even drug store plastic Christmas balls a wow factor.
Like here – about 30 silver & gold plastic Christmas balls in a giant gold bowl on the dining table in my former soulful home.
Don’t have 30 balls? No worries…
Fill the bottom of the bowl with cotton balls, folded fabric, shredded paper bag, tissue paper, fake snow or anything that will fill it up a bit. Then place the balls you have on top. Easy!
Having a few boxes of Christmas balls handy allows you to infuse a room with Christmas spirit on the fly ~ literally even!
Toss a few here…
Add a couple there…
This topless tureen filled with gold Shiny Brites sits in my kitchen this year.
You can see my Christmas Kitchen here and you’ll spy more easy ways to tuck in Christmas balls to create a simple festive look.
Mix Christmas balls in with pinecones for a little rustic meets bling.
I even add them to unexpected places! ( my succulent filled fountain )
Perch one in a special spot for all to see.
Most of all have fun with your Christmas decor.
Don’t let it become a chore. If it feels that way – stop the madness!!
Step away from the bins. Grab one box of balls and do what I shared today. Or not even … as it is not about the number of ornaments on your tree or lights on your house. It is about the number of people in your heart & those that light up your life.
