A Christmas Pillow + Vignette

 

Ho ho ho! Christmas cheer is spreading throughout the Ten June household! So far, I've got the tree up and it's decorated with a few of my DIY cranberry glass ornaments. Because we put the Christmas tree up in the living room where our slipper chairs and nesting tables usually go, I had to move one of the chairs and the table to the tiny corner of the room by the television, right under my favorite new rustic DIY wall sign. It's kind of a cramped space, but it will work for December!

Needless to say, that's where I decided to set up a sweet little holiday vignette. I set up a tiny Christmas tree and wrapped its base in leftover linen fabric I had laying around. I dressed it with a glittery bow, but instead of putting ornaments on the tree, I decided to try a little something different and fill up a vase with sparkly ornaments beside the tree. I think they look great!


I stacked the vase + ornaments on top of a few holiday (or holiday colored!) books and a wrapped gift box for some extra height. Looks like I need a few more holiday books to add to my pile! : )


For the slipper chair, I simply pinned a swatch of red felt onto the front of our sofa's linen pillows. Since these are our everyday pillows, I didn't want to make a permanent holiday pillow, but I'm sure you could recreate this idea and actually sew the felt on... and it would look a whole lot more snazzy too! : ) I also pinned on a mitten ornament that I found on sale at JoAnn's. Voila! An easy breezy holiday pillow.


So there you have it, my little holiday vignette!


Have you set up any fun holiday related spaces in your home? Maybe you decorated a sideboard, prettied up a counter top or tinseled your entryway? If so, you better get on over to Courtney's blog, A Thoughtful Place, and link up with her today

I'm also linking up with Sarah at Thrifty Decor Chick, Kate from Centsational Girl, Katie from Bower Power, Stephanie from Under the Table and Dreaming and Beth from Home Stories A to Z.

  1. That looks perfect! I have a little wall nook area in my house that I am trying to figure out what to do with it, and I think a little tree would look perfect! And I absolutely adore your word art. I love that quote!

  2. So funny I have been on the lookout for a Christmas pillow! Love your little tree and great idea to put the ornaments in a jar. I have ornaments in bowls all over my house- it's probably overkill but I love Christmas decorations!

  5. I see your wall art all over the internet and can't figure out why it doesn't say "whom" instead of "who". But I love it and am going to try my hand at it soon. Jo @ Let's Face the Music

  12. I love this space and I definitely love how you included the bulbs in your vignette without putting them on the tree. That's a great toddler proof for me:)
