This weekend I will be “selling some of my wares” at a local holiday sale.

I will be selling some of my vintage items just as they are, but I put my own twist for some of them for Christmas.

It occurred to me after I was done that this was actually a very easy project to share with you.Easy Christmas Decorating Crafts

Step 1: Choose your container of choice.

I used cheese boxes, tabletop sleighs, wooden boxes and  some quirky greenery purses.Easy Christmas Decorating Crafts

Step 2: Line the bottom of the container with some sort of floral foam.

I chose not to glue it in case someone wanted to use the container out of season as well.   However, you can secure it with hot glue if you choose.

Step 3: Decide on your style direction.

I chose a few directions to appeal to more people, but still kept it all within my own aesthetics.

Some are greens and golds, some are rustics and reds and some are bright and fun.

Step 4: Layer in your larger and “fluffier” greenery – being sure it is secured to the floral foam.

Step 5: Begin layering your smaller greenery and details.  Add a bow if you feel appropriate as well.

I also wired in vintage ornaments on several of the pieces.  On the larger sled I also secured the ornaments with some hot glue from the underside.

And that is it – as you can see the options for containers and style direction can be limitless. Easy Christmas Decorating Crafts

    These are all so adorable and beautiful. I have don’t that kind of stuff before but never thought of using the floral foam. I’m going to make a centerpiece for Christmas with candles. Now I’m not sure if I’m going to use real or fake greenery. This time I’ll at least use the right kind of foam. I made my mom a gorgeous arrangement for her birthday, one year, and used the wrong stuff. I was bummed when the craft foam didn’t absorb the water. That was way before I blogged and learned all new tricks. :)
