Now that the Christmas tree is decorated, it's time to take care of all the other areas of the house. I like to decorate the bookcases that are in the living room. Adding lights makes them super festive and creates the best nighttime mood.
But I don't decorate with just anything. I am going to show you how to reuse old decor to make bright Christmas vignettes. Because pretty can be made from just about anything. Even if you don't know where it came from!

The Mostly Blue and White One
In order to fill the space of the shelves, I like to use printables and place them in frames. There are so many great bloggers out there who make pretty printables. My favorite is Katrin of Northern Feeling.
I also like to use ornaments as decor to create vignettes. The angel and church are a natural together. And next year I can hang them on the tree if I don't use them on the shelves.
And you know those clear plastic ornaments that are empty inside for you to fill? Well I added a pine cone that was painted in a metallic color.
Pine cones are really my favorite way to decorate for fall and winter. This year instead of leaving them alone, I've painted many of them in different metallic shades.
I'm Mary and I recently moved to New York from beautiful Greece. I like to re-purpose and up-cycle anything that is old or looks like junk. Join me as we use our creativity to spark some life into old things. And do it frugally! You will also see lots of photography of my Greece and New York.
