Clearly I have been
obsessed inspired by the Christmas edition of Jeanne d'Arc Living. I have copied three or four different looks...as part of my holiday decor. The two previous looks I posted about were:
So when I saw this in the magazine...I was hooked. I loved all the little details and decided I wanted to create this as part of my holiday decor. Hope you like my interpretation of this beautiful vignette.
So I started with a old vintage box that I purchased on Etsy and stuffed it to make it easier to work with.
Then I placed two hardcover books on top of the stuffing...to give it stability. Before I put the candles in place.
Then I filled it in with some moss.... and started mixing in my favorite goodies. Here is a paper flower that Donna from My Shabby Chateau made....that was on the wrapping of the French inspired holiday ornaments I purchased from her Etsy Shop.
I placed the two ornaments on either side of the box - with double sided tap....
And then - the fun began...filling it in with some of my very favorite things....
I took twine and a crystal ornament and wrapped it around the candle. I also put in a beautiful glass bulb ornament from My Shabby Chateau - that has vintage music sheet, seam binding and all kinds of cute little things...some coral, glass floats, seashells, pine cones...
I've made a couple very slight modifications since I took these photos...I put in another pillar candle and added a few more coastal touches...
Hope you enjoyed my interpretation!!
