Helloo welcome to Day 17 of Love Your Christmas Home, we are on the home run, I’m hoping your home is looking pretty, mine is pretty in a bomb-site-pre-Christmas-oh-my-goodness-three-children-and-a-dog kinda way – or in other words, it’s lived in with sparkly lights…

Soooooo anyway I am thinking that today we need to do some vignetting, I mean one cannot possibly swing through this season without the partaking of some vignettes…

Here are a few ideas from me, key things to do and remember for this mission and when creating vignettes….there is a lot said on the internet now and even workshops in vignetting and a few people have said to me that they don’t know ‘how’ to vignette, I reckon throw those thoughts out with the dustman, don’t over-think it and just enjoy making nice little places in your home…that’s what I’ve always done anyway…

1. keep it simple

2. stick to one area at a time or you’ll get over-whelmed

3. add Christmas bling to things you already own

4. indulge in this festive event with some music and a drink and enjoy a little bit of sparkly creativity, it’s always better than the other version of this time of year which is headless-chicken-y

5. don’t pull out too much stuff, you’ll end up in a mess and wish you hadn’t started…

My vignetting has been quick and easy this year, I’ve been away for the weekend and have a few events this week so I’m keeping it basic…I used more greenery, bunched together, hand tied with a ribbon and secured to the back of a chair…

Letters are always simple and easy, paired with a couple of lantern jars and some shells…best thing about this is it’s easy to put away after Christmas, I am not a lover of the post-Christmas put-away, hence my decor always has that in mind…

And simple vintage bottles tied off with red polka dot festive ribbon and rosemary…too easy.

Enjoy foofing and vignetting
