If you still remember the candles that I bought from a yard sale, the here's the continuation. I am not really good in decorating so I created, recreated, then change it again a bunch of times lol..
I used these marbles that we bought in store and put it inside the gree bottles which I find in the attic.
I tried to put the candle holders on top of the bottle which by the way has holes under them and makes it perfect to slide them on top of the bottles.
However, hubby said that they looked like angels with wings in front and that they are very tall. So I tried to remove the red ribbons but they still look hideous lol. Here's how the bottles looked like at first. The statue of Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus was also bought for a buck at the yard sale where I bought the candles.
So I then changed it again and settled for this one. I wrapped around the leaves that I originally wrapped the bottles into the candle holders. Then I put Holly in the middle, put the bottles on the other side. I plan to buy some small candles to stick in the bottles.
The Santa with gifts cost $.50, so cheap isn't it? I bought it in a garage sale long time ago. The other Santa is a musical one, Dad gave that to the kids. Thanks to Mel of Love Home Grown Garden for giving Rylie one of her doll collection (Holly). So there's my decorations that costs $7 only.
Below is a parenting tip from parents.com.
We’ve got creative crafts that do double-duty, such as this gift wrap made of full-sheet label paper. Pick your favorite project and set aside some time this weekend!
