Easy Christmas Decor with Frugal Mommas

Happy Saturday, Friends!

Just popping in to share a super quick and easy holiday decorating idea.

I happened on this idea because it troubles me that from September through Spring, it seems that I am constantly putting up and taking down decor. Ugh. 

It’s just too much.

This year, I’m taking a short cut. On the buffet server in the dining room, I simply dropped some stems covered in ice chunks in a copper pot at the beginning of December. The plan is to leave them here until Spring. 

Three stems filled the pot. And the texture and color reflection provide a completely unique wintery look.

And that’s all there is to it.

What easy and quick decor can you share? I’d love to hear your ideas in the comment section at the bottom of this post.

For easy and quick Christmas decor that goes from December till Spring, try stems covered in ice chucks. They provide neutral texture that matches any decor | The Chelsea Project |

And now, let’s say hello to the sweet Frugals.
