About a year ago I did a little post on adding shine with metallics, I enjoyed the glow of mixing
white, gold and silver so much in January, that I decided to use this theme in my family room
and Kitchen for Christmas 2014!
I keep tweaking the look, adding and taking away.
Along the way of decorating for Christmas, I received an e-mail from Liz from Hometalk,
asking me if I would like to curate a board on DIY Metallic decorations for the holidays.
Well, of course I said yes!
I had the best time, and Liz was a dream to work with, so pop on over and get even more DIY
inspiration for all of your holiday decorating.
Since it isn’t likely that I will have a white Christmas in Texas, I am creating my own.
I just adore the look of a White flocked Christmas Tree and I found these 24 inch trees at
Hobby Lobby for 50% off, seems they are a perfect fit on the family room mantle.
I am using these White Christmas trees in my family room as an anchor for my metallic Christmas.
To keep my metallic theme going, I added some white and silver jeweled stockings.
I found this little wooden serving tray at Angel’s Attic and painted it white.
Added some silver birds, mercury glass, burlap and another white tree.
Just for fun I glued on some peppermints-
there were more, but someone by the name of
Molly, pulled them off!
My adorable grand baby….smile….
I always enjoy combing the old with the new when I decorate for Christmas.
So, the past couple of years I have incorporated these two old black and white photos of Elk.
These are original photos which my Dad took, way back when. I love them and I thought they
look pretty snazzy in these silver frames.
I have this odd ledge in my Kitchen, for so long it perplexed me and I tried to ignore it.
Now, I use it!
So, I put my favorite Birdcages on this ledge and two gold glitzy bells.
I left my all white Rooster.
In the background you can see the family room mantel, by keeping with my white and
metallic Christmas theme in both areas it creates continuity and harmony.
I love decorating for Christmas!
White, metallic, red, green or blue, how are you decorating for Christmas this year?
