Wit and Whimsy: Easy Christmas Decor

I love the simplicity of the glass candlesticks and Shiny Brite ornaments:

I would so try this if I had plain glass candlesticks.  I love this look!

I think this easy grouping would make the cutest centerpiece.  What do you think?

Until next time...

  1. I have some vintage ornaments (almost identical!) in a silver compote. They look so pretty with a bit of greenery!

    Hope you are enjoying the festivities of the season.


  2. Hi Ricki Jill,
    Oh I love this, it's a great look! It looks like you have a good excuse to hit the thrift stores, or garage sales, or? :-)

  3. I have a few ornaments like that. They belonged to Keith's Grandmother and I'm terrified of breaking them!

  4. I love it! I need to find some more candlesticks at the thrift store! Hugs!

  5. Two things I think:

    1-I used to have simple glass candle sticks like that. Wonder what ever happened to them?! I have noticed really inexpensive ones at Hobby Lobby that would work.

    2-I'm the only one on the planet who doesn't have Shiny Brite ornaments and now I want them. :)

  6. Shiny Brite ornaments and glass candlesticks seem like a perfect match up to me :)

  7. I not only love it, but it is an easy fix when you are pressed for time especially at this time of year.

  8. I have some ornaments like that and a few glass candlesticks. I love it too. This would be one of those decorations that would have the whole house quietly staring sideways at me wondering how far I will go with my decorating binges. Ha!

  9. Great idea. So simple, yet festive. Love vintage ornaments.

  10. Hi, Ricki

    This is a great idea. I found clear glass candlestick at the dollar store. Have a great Thursday!


  11. Love it! Ricki Jill, do you have a store called Dollar Tree? They have those exact candle sticks for $1 each.

  12. I love the amount of light these bring in! Perfect for a mantel. :)

  13. So very simple but so very lovely! You know you can get those clear glass candlesticks in various heights at the $Store! Endless things you can do with those little things -- super cheap, but they don't look cheap!

  14. LOVE this! I must try after I find some candlesticks :)
