A few weeks ago, I fell in lov ewith pink pepper and its pretty stylish little balls … To such an extent that I decided to make it a central element of our Christmas décorations … This pink pepper is so lovely directly placed on a table, or in a pretty plate. It can also make pretty bouquets in metal tumblers … And if you have more time and you’re ready for a DIY activity, here are some simple decorative ideas which immediately bring a festive mood : a crown and a set of candles.
Very easy to make! You just need :
- A 50 cm metal rod
- A floral tape
- 4-5 eucalyptus and fir sprigs
- 4-5 sprigs of pink pepper (easily found at florists)
- 60 cm satin ribbon
Take the metal rod and fold the e if it is not already done to form two small circles (through which one will pass the satin ribbon at the end)
Start by entirely wrapping the rod with the floral tape.
Then, starting 7 to 8 cm from the beginning of the rod, make mini bouquets of eucalyptus, fir and pepper that you will keep to therod with floral tape. Be careful to always place your mini bouquets in the same direction and tie them one by one to the structure.
Stop 7 to 8 cm before the end.
Pass the satin ribbon through the end rings to attach and adjust your crown to the desired size.
There you have it!
DECORATIVE SET OF CANDLES
To achieve this, you will need:
- A wooden log (you can find it for example at Fleux conceptstore or at your florist)
- 4 round candles
- 4-5 pink pepper berries
- 4 medium-sized pine cones
- 4-5 small branches of fir and/or eucalyptus (about 5 cm long)
Very simple: light a candle and glue the pine cones to four quarters of the log with the liquid wax . Then, place, between each pine cone, the strands of pepper, eucalyptus and fir, taking care to alternate. Gleu them with the wax. Then place your four candles in the center. Nothing complicated for a pretty décoration for your festive table or fireplace!
Another nice discovery for this Christmas, the pine tree from Fleux Conceptstore (where you will also find plenty of other pretty cool decorative ideas). To hang on the wall (29 €). You can decorate it with a light garland to brighten the living room.
We do not know yet if we are going to make a Christmas tree because the house is already very festive as well! And you, on what mood are you for Christmas this year?
