Today, I have for you another almost free seasonal decoration idea:
Go on a walk. Look for branches. Find branches. Bring them home.
Arrange them attractively on a mantelpiece, or in a vase or pitcher. Or just lay them on a table.
If you want, tie them with a beautiful ribbon. Cloth ribbon, please; not paper ribbon.
It's richer. More elegant.
If you want, switch out the ribbons to reflect Thanksgiving (above), then later, Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa (below):
Beautiful cloth ribbons can be found at good yardage shops, vintage shops, and flea markets.
If you live in the middle of nowhere and want to find some gorgeous ribbon online, I like this place.
Something beautiful for practically nothing makes my heart happy.
