You should have come to my blog from Kathy's Blog!!

Glad you came by today to see what I have to share.

Today I thought it would be nice to share an easy decoration.

I got two bags of artificial fruit in some grab bags from Michael's recently. I have been trying to figure out how to use some of the many inexpensive goodies I purchased. I took the fruit and spray painted one bag gold and the other silver. I grouped them together in a red basket I have. Then added a few cut glittery bells I purchased last year after Christmas. I also took a small piece of artificial holly that I took apart and made into 3 smaller groupings. I then added a piece of Christmas ribbon around the basket.

This is a quick and easy yet very pretty decoration you can whip up in less then an hour!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my project today. Stop back tomorrow and check out what I have to share.

Have a great Tuesday!!!

  1. Clever decorating idea and one I use myself each year. I have a big ceramic lobster that I found at a thrift shop years ago and I fill the little bowl on his back with small Christmas ornaments (yard sale find) - instant decorating at no cost.
