Christmas Ornaments and Lights – Simply Beautiful

Christmas Ornaments and Lights - Simply Beautiful

 

This is one of the easiest projects you’ll undertake this Season.

Materials

  • Favorite ornaments – even better if purchased 11 months ago at a considerable discount, though, right now, you may find a fantastic deal!
  • LED battery fairy lights
  • Large glass container

Instructions

Assemble an assortment of ornaments. These traditional, glass, satin ornaments are a few of my favorite. They aren’t on the tree this year, so they’ll live in my guest bath until January.

In lieu of battery lights, a short string of crafts lights would make a great alternative for this project if there is an outlet handy.

The lights in this project are warm white.

Layer the ornaments and lights in the container. This is nicely done listening to Christmas music and drinking eggnog.

If you don’t have a simple vase like this one, a canister or vintage glass vase works fine.

Keep layering ……  don’t worry about filling the vase to the brim.
