How to Make a Holiday Vignette
1. A statement piece. Pick an item with character that you love and build around that piece.
2. Height. Balance your vignette with varying levels. Make sure it properly fills the space you’re using.
3. Layers. Different textures and colors work together to create an overall balanced picture.
4. Something natural. If it feels a little off, add greenery, pinecones or holiday berries for a fresh finish.
ribbons and pops of red, while others, like a long bough draped over a hutch, are left completely natural. The effect of the simple greenery is both whimsical and calming. A pair of ice skates, a basket of pinecones and some hanging red hats finish the delightful scene.
MAKE YOUR OWN
With an appreciation for all things handmade, Michelle created several of the holiday signs herself, including one right outside the front door made from an old cabinet face. She paired the sign with a red vintage oil lamp to complete the vignette.
Chalkboards and handmade signs allow you to personalize your home for the holidays with messages that resonate with you and your family. In the kitchen, a sign created from a template reads,
MINT GREEN DREAM. The steel Youngstown kitchencabinets added sometime in the 1950s are cool year round, but they truly come alive during the holidays whenthey create the perfect Christmas color palette.
