This year, I am all about keepin' it simple. I started my Christmas decorating in my breakfast nook this year. I spend a ton of time here, so I want it to really reflect my personality. I love all things aqua and white, fabric, glitter, and chippy paint. So, when decorating my nook, I started with my glitter in glass ornaments, added a sweet little countdown to Christmas, then hung JOY chargers with ribbon. The only thing missing was a centerpiece...something simple, made with some scrap pieces of fabric.
I found these heavy cardboard cones at Michael's and just knew I could use them somewhere. I had no idea what I was going to do with them, then it hit me...cover them with fabric, and group them together...won't that be pretty!
I wanted each tree to be a little different, so I gathered three different fabrics. I cut long strips of white fabric and sewed a simple ruffle to wrap around the large cone. I ripped strips of aqua to wrap diagonally around the middle cone, and I ripped thin strips of dropcloth fabric to wrap from top to bottom on the smallest cone.
For each tree, I started by hot glueing fabric at the top and working my way down.
Once I had them all wrapped, I grouped them together on an old silver platter and placed them in the center of my table...aren't they sweet and simple? The perfect addition to my little nook...
