10 Minute Christmas Project

We are all busy during the holiday season, so 10 minute projects are good projects right!?! I spent my Sunday afternoon at a photo shoot with my sister & my sweet baby niece. That's what's keeping my busy these days :) Anyways, let's get down to business.

I found this lantern type thing in the free barn at the dump. I stuck it in the garage until I could figure out what to do with it. Then I got some {pin}spiration & came up with this. I didn't paint it, it looked okay the way it was. I did have to add a piece of glass though. Since I didn't want to go have a piece measured & cut I used glass out of an old picture frame. It didn't fit perfectly so that is the back side ;)
Filled it with thrift store Christmas balls & pinecones.
I think it really came to life when I added it to my Christmas vignette.

Stay tuned for more 10 minute Christmas projects!!
