Christmas Cheer Blog Party - Christmas Craft

Today's the first day of the fabulous Christmas Cheer link party. You'll see me posting about various Christmas projects over the next week.  I'm linking up today with Cassie over at Hi Sugarplum!  Make sure to join the fun over the next week.


So here's my craft.  Let me tell you, I kept this one super simple and even better, very cheap.  I've wanted to change up my traditional Christmas mantle and knew I wanted something sparkly.  Our Christmas tree is decorated in mostly blues ans silvers but I wanted to add a touch of gold to make it look a bit more fancy.  I was perusing the aisles of JoAnn's last week and wanted to find something sparkly gold with some height.  I found some various floral sprays as they call them.  
A couple in white, some blue and my favorite was the gold.  I may be running back to the store to purchase another handful of the gold sprays.  Each were originally $1.99 but they were having a sale so I got each for 50% off.  I grabbed a total of 8 sprays (2 white, 2 white w/ blue, 4 gold), if you're adding this up were at $7.96.  
I wanted to find a nice Christmasy or white vase to put them in and I just hadn't had the time to find what I was searching for.  Solution:  a clear flower vase I had under the sink.
