I’m all about easy this Christmas! Let’s give ourselves a break and make decorating easy… and beautiful! Yes, we can do it! We can leave all the big bins of Christmas fluff and choctchkies in our basements or attics! Instead we can add some fabulous and easy touches of Christmas… and not dump the whole sleigh of Ho Ho Ho decor on our homes! Today I’m sharing a really easy and simple and stunning Christmas arrangement that can be made for your mantel or table or tucked just about anywhere. And it will take only about 15 minutes, if that, to create! Just think of all the ways you can change and interpret this arrangement. I love that!

This week I made a very simple and pretty arrangement that anyone can do! Don’t you love simple?
I made two Christmas arrangements in glass cylinders filled with tiny greens and sparkling with candlelight! Easy and pretty!
Here’s what you will need:
- glass cylinders ( I got mine at Target)
- glass votive candles
- burlap, ribbon, or burlap webbing
- faux greens
- snow (optional)
- double sided tape
Just a note. I used (jute) burlap webbing for this project. It is the best best burlap to use!!! You can find it plain and with stripes and in different sizes. I used 3 1/2 inch webbing with a black stripe. You can find this on line HERE.
1. Cut the burlap webbing strip to go around your cylinder. It can be as thick or as thin as you like. I frayed the top and bottom by pulling out 1 strand. Fasten together with double sided tape.
2. Add three votive holders in the glass cylinder and fill in with tiny bits of faux greens and berries.
3. Add votive candles and light!
So easy! So pretty!
I put the arrangement on a pretty white plate with detailed edges (HomeGoods).
The large cylinder arrangement holds one large candle and greens. Just think of all the wonderful arrangements you can make… use a Christmas plaid bow instead of burlap. Add tiny ball ornaments instead of berries. Use a tall candle. There are so many way to be inspired by this easy-to-do Christmas decoration! And you can make all of these in no time at all!
Promise yourself that this will be the year that you will decorate tastefully, lightly and beautifully!! Enjoy the process and let Christmas decorating be stressless!
Just a quick note… please do not leave a candle unattended especially if it has faux greens around it! Use extra caution!
