We got a fairly big snow Sunday night.  Technically, it was a blizzard because of the high winds.

I figured it was the perfect time to show you what I worked on while it snowed.

Christmas decor need not be expensive or hard to create!

I picked up an antique drawer during the summer for just a few dollars.  Turning it into winter coffee table decor was so easy.

Here’s what I used in addition to the drawer.  (I forgot to include the bow I used in this photo.)

Everything except the bow was 50% off.

The bow is actually a ponytail bow.  I just snipped off the rubber band.  It was less expensive than any other bow I found and was the right size.

The floral foam was one I’d used before and I’m reusing it.

It was as easy as wrapping the wired ribbon around crate and adding a few dabs of hot glue to secure it in place, then adding the bow on the front.

Admittedly, it’s a little crooked.  I’m a little wonky anyway, so I left it!

Then I just pushed the picks into the foam and put it in the crate.  So easy!

I didn’t have anything to use for snow, but I still might add some cotton batting to make it look like the snowman is in a wintry forest.

I used a scrap piece of wood to make the “Let it Snow” sign.

So easy to do.

If you want to make one yourself, my wood measures 9″ x 11″.

It’s stained with Early America color, but you could use any color or paint the wood instead.

I used the Let It Snow transfer with Ocean Mist chalk paste and sealed it with clear sealer.

It’s about a 10-minute project, not including the time for the stain to dry.  That was fast too with our heater running.

I made a few of them for gifts, too.

I’m going to sell this sign for $12 + shipping.  I haven’t listed it in my shop yet, so if anyone is interested in buying it, just let me know.

  1. Very pretty, Angie! It’s fun to have decorations that last through the winter!

  2. It’s very cute, Angie, and looks like it was fun to make. Cheers and Happy Holidays to you and your family, Ardith

  3. Angie, that is so cute! Especially the little snowman. Did you make him or buy him? He looks like he was made out of a piece of white padding materialk–do you know what I’m talking about? I can’t think of what it’s called.

    I have an old drawer I’ve been wondering what to do with, too. I better get busy! Time flies when it’s almost Christmas!
