Anticipating Christmas - Episode 9 - Video Series

in #video2 years ago

I picked up this old postbox at an antique shop with this exact purpose in mind - to seasonally display my collection of vintage postcards! Here is a quick floral arrangement consisting of a variety of frosted floral & just a few antique postcards!

Episode 9


With a dark-red & silver color scheme, this snowy tree has just a hint of color. Burlap warms the look and adds a rustic touch next to the elegant mercury glass ornaments. I gave old gift ribbon a second season by using the various length pieces on this tree, then filling in with burlap & a narrow gold glitter ribbon.

Episode 8


This festive planter contains contrasting colors and floral to add an interesting variety of textures and color. With an eclectic mix of Christmas embellishments from candy cane stripe ribbon to gold glitter stars - this planter gives a warm welcome to your holiday guests! This could be done to fit any color scheme by changing the color of the ornament, ribbon, and artificial floral.

Episode 7


Create a charming snowy village scene in your home! In this video I will show you how to set up a Christmas village display using light-up houses, decorative accents, & fake snow. I will also show you how to minimize cords & hide cords.

Episode 6


Elegant & wintery, this frosted floral arrangement is the perfect decorative addition to any spot in your home! Coordinating floral can be time consuming, so to save time, choose a pre-made bundle of floral and add in your own accents to bring it to life. We chose this white floral bundle & added a variety of artificial pine for extra texture and height, as well as some frosty leaves to break up the shape & add a wintery texture. This arrangement would also be perfect for winter weddings!

Episode 5


Smokey blue, gold, and cream colored ribbon give this tree an old-fashioned Victorian color scheme. Ornaments in silver, gold, light blue, and off-white continue this color scheme while warm ivory candle lights add to the vintage feel. With only 100 candle lights illuminating the branches, this tree's lights are subtle & not overpowering, like the soft color scheme. A coordinating angel in off white & soft gold was used to top the tree.

Episode 4


With a silver & gold color scheme, these neutral planters will look great anywhere. The addition of a large lantern (and flame-less timer candle) warms the look. Artificial pine garland & pine floral were used rather than real so they can be reused year after year!

Episode 3


Here is a quick video showing how to light a Christmas tree! Light amount is a preference, so if you like more subtle lighting, weave the lights closer to the edge to use less. If you want more, weave a little further into the tree. This balsam fir is lit with incandescent string lights. I used about 850 light count on this 7.8 ft tree. 150 of those are twinkle lights that were mixed in (after the regular lights) to give the tree a sparkling look!

Episode 2


Adorned with golden paper stars, this gilded tree is covered from head to toe with golden ornaments & glitter floral. In the first part, I will show you how to make 3D paper stars - an easy craft! Then, watch the tree put together from start to finish! I try to do an artsy tree each year - 2016 got the "Wave Ribbon Christmas Tree", 2017 got the "Elegant Feather Christmas Tree", and 2018 gets the "Golden Star Christmas Tree"! :)
