decoration ideas for christmas.

It soon will be christmas and  this morning i was thinking of what i was going to choose this year as a decoration. This will be unexpensive decoration this year! I  will give you some ideas i have already done in the past. The first one you need: a floral mousse(in french, something you soak in water and  stick the flowers in, if you understand what i mean?)
wire  mesh and 4 meters of ribbons. It looks nice hung in a hall.

I love "fruits givrés" it's very simple and very nice for xmas. Just egg white , sugar and fruits thats all!
This is the one i like best, an ice bowl. For christmas it is nice with dried leaves  and tiny pine cones .You need two bowls and a jam jar. Put some water between the big and smaller bowl and the jar full of water and some tape to keep the second bowl in place , some dried leaves between keep in the freezer for the night and that's all !
Christmas crackers. How to make your own. Very easy , you only have to choose what to put inside ! I hope it will give you ideas for  christmas  and enjoy your weekend! see you soon . Catherine.( You may click on pictures to enlarge)

Hello Catherine!
This post took me by suprise...I wasn't thinking about Christmas at all but you reminded me that it's just around the corner and I need to get busy and start making a few gifts! It's amazing how quickly time flies. I love all the things you've shown us but I have always wanted to make an icebowl but never got around to it. I think this year I'll put that on my TO DO list for December...thank you for reminding me of that too ;) I hope you're having a wonderful afternoon my friend. Maura :)

I am so happy to find your blog! I am a native Californian with a love affair of all thing French. I have been studying the language for several years. I haven't come very far I am afraid, but like blogging, it is so much fun.

Your blog is lovely...I see so much to enjoy. Here we are still decorating for Halloween, but I will be taking notice of your Christmas ideas!

Love your rooster picture!

Beautiful ideas. I once made the ice bowls for a Christmas dinner centerpiece. They were lovely but with the house full of guests and a fire in the fireplace, by the end of the dinner they were melting. . .

Warm wishes,

great ideas, I have been thinking a lot of christmas and how I will decorate this year. I can't wait. I love when the house gets the warm glow from the trees and smells like pine and cinnamon.
Have a great weekend.
