This month's Pinterest Challenge is so fun and simple for the holidays.
Welcome to another installment of our monthly Pinterest Challenges hosted by my sweet friend, Cindy, from County Road 407.
This month for our Pinterest Challenge, we are recreating this beautiful crate with greenery and trees created by Grace House Interiors. Be sure to give the blog a visit. I love this idea! I created my own look using similar elements.
Isn't this pretty! It's such a simple way to decorate but looks amazing.
If you are visiting from Yvonne over at Stone Gable, welcome! Yvonne's home and decor projects are always stunning. I always leave inspired.
Neutral Nativity Scene
Takeaways for my Neutral Nativity
- wooden base
- ornaments with varying height
The beauty of Pinterest is that it's a springboard for inspiration. Don't feel like you have to break the bank recreating rooms, decor and projects that you see.
For example, I didn't have a crate for this challenge. That's ok! The crate was wood so I looked around the house for some sort of base that had a wooden element. This tray was perfect.
I was totally going to do something else, but I was drawn to the nativity that I had already set up on in the exact spot.
You'll notice that I added 2 bottle trees on the left side of the tray. From there, I began to place the nativity and additional greenery to fill out the space.
I've had the JOY word for several years now and is fitting with the Holy Family.
I was so excited when I got home and started to paint the set that I realized that it was missing the most important part…..the baby Jesus!
If you are determined enough, you can find anything online.
I actually found a great replacement on eBay!
Both of the bottle trees are the same height, but you'll notice that the inspiration photo had varying heights.
I simple turned a silver dish upside down and used it as a riser.
The tray was not large enough to display the entire nativity so I expanded it out on either side. The greenery and candles on either side helped to tie it all together.
Up next on today's tour is Laura from Decor to Adore. Laura has such a lovely home. I love her flair for vintage decor and period costumes!
