Wrapping it up!

I have been wrapping gifts this week and when I was through, I thought, hm mm, maybe those chairs in the dining room could use a little wrapping.  I had bought this wide mesh a couple of months ago, because I loved the color and thought, I bet you could do something fun with this! I tried the wide wrap first, and I didn't like it so I took it off and cut the mesh in half.  Much better!
I then added some red berried and some sparkly ornaments.

I attached the ornaments on some gold wire that I had and put about 5 per wire and then wired it around the bow knot.

Doesn't that just add some festiveness to my table?

I know I said that I was through decorating but sometimes I just can't help myself. (I know, I need help.)

I had some of the mesh left over so I added some to the potted topiary in the corner.  I had already put a string of lights in the bottom and putting the mesh over the top just made it better.

I added another nativity and put it in the center of a crystal ice wreath and just added lights around the wreath.

It kind of looks cold and I hope baby Jesus stays warm, but the effect looks nice.

I added a garland to the stair railing and little red rice lights. I added just a few pinecones and metal stars, and it finished it off just right.

Hope you are having a great day and wrapping up all of the rest of your projects that you have left!
