This is going to be a really short post! I wanted to share one last DIY project for the holidays that couldn't be easier or take less time to complete -- plus, it can be customized for nearly any type of decor or season.
We have a clear glass lamp with a burlap shade from Homegoods that is pretty enough, but fairly bland looking. It's on a side table in a corner of our living room (and looks similar to the Pottery Barn lamps pictured below):
For winter, I thought it would be nice to fill the lamp with pinecones and faux frosted pine needles -- a quick (5 min) project that would make the room more festive. I had some leftover pinecone and driftwood vase filler lying around so I mixed these with faux pine needles (from an old wreath that I was planning to get rid of). To fill the lamp, I simply popped off the top, tossed in the filler, and then put the top back on. Here's a look at the finished product:
Despite how simple this project was, I love the result and how it really transforms this corner of our living room. Here's a photo of how the lamp lights up the room in the evening:
I plan to leave this filler inside the lamp throughout the winter and will then replace it with something more seasonally appropriate for Spring (and then Summer and Fall). A super easy and inexpensive way to liven up the room each season. Happy holidays!
