It all started with the wide set of three windows in the living room. They were just begging to be accessorized....and this was my super simple solution!
These provided just the touch I was looking for to provide a festive frame above the window. So, I made more....for the window behind the tree....
Hey, I was on to something here....so, why stop in the living room?!?!? I added some to the windows in our bedroom. This time I used a box of bronze ornaments purchased at WalMart ($5 for 12). Fortunately, the green, red and gold colors in our room already lend a holiday feel to the room!
Finally, I focused on Ed's little office, which has a Texas theme anyway. These cute little wire star ornaments were 2/$1 at Dollar Tree, so this double window got "the treatment", too.
I'm tickled with the added element of whimsy....and the way the hanging ornaments reflect the light in the rooms, both day and evening. It was an easy, quick project that didn't break the budget. (All three rooms came in at $11 for the ornaments; I used leftover ribbon and wire I already had.)
I'm linking up with Robin over at "All Things Heart and Home" for her "All Things Merry & Brite" party. If you take a moment to click on the link, I know you will be blown away by all the great ideas and inspiration of Merry & Brite party-goers!
If you've come up with a simple solution to stretch your decorating dollar for the holidays in a non-traditional way, I would love to hear about it!
Keep it warm, Friends!
