I usually start small when I get into the Christmas decorating thing and then I move onto the bigger projects as I get more into it. Slowly, so I can really enjoy what I’m doing.
I’ve made a promise to myself to keep things simple, and I intend to keep that promise.
So, this year I’m looking to existing stashes for simple projects.
Like my small collection of mini tea cups.
I used to have many more, but some ended up in garden plate flowers that I’ve sold over the years.
It’s so much fun to go through my Christmas stashes each season because I’m often surprised by what I forgot I had. I donated three large boxes of newer type decorations a few weeks ago and still have a lot of great stuff left to decorate with.
Like this mixed bag of bottle brush trees that I thrifted for $1 a few years ago. Perfect for some mini tea cup trees.
And just like that I have my own little Christmas tree cup forest.
They’re not even glued in. They just sit nicely in the cups. Easy peasy!
The trees don’t have to be perfect.
Real trees aren’t perfect, so why would fake trees have to be.
They don’t even have to be decorated.
Often beauty is in simplicity.
Especially for this over-thinker. I find the whole keeping it simple thing very relaxing. I’m going to try to under-think things this year. lol.
No Christmas stress allowed. How about you?
Don’t forget to pin it!
Thanks so much for reading, and until next time…
keep on keepin’ on!
