You CAN try this at home!

I put a family photo from Christmases past in each one of these shiny red metallic frames. This is a very simple idea that one anyone can do.
It is not necessary to have red frames. I think displaying photos from the past is a warm fuzzy Christmas decorating idea.

This vignette also includes photos from a past Christmas.
I painted the lampshade to coordinate with the colors in the room. This was a fun project and didn't take much time. This is another thing YOU can do with acrylic craft paints. Just choose a design in keeping with your decor and colors.
The tinsel tree is shiny enough without it's lights so I will not plug it in as the cord would be unsightly.
I needed something to wrap around the bottom to conceal the stand. I looked across the room and there was a shawl I had worn the night before. Perfect color, perfect size!

I am keeping the puzzle easy too. This is a simple cut and one I have never used before.
