Though I love embellishments as much or more than most, every so often my mind gets a "Less is more" inspiration.
When a component is so beautiful, that adding anything to it would take away from its perfection, these are the times that my brain tells me "Just because you can, doesn't mean you should".......
Here are three examples of my tabletop creations where less is more, and oh so easy-peasy to create in the eleventh hour of decorating......
Can you ever go wrong with silver glass glitter? As long as you don't glitter every square millimeter of the creation, you can create beautiful results. A grouping of these trees twinkles and shines fabulously in ambient mood lighting.
LIke the little black dress, this tree is very simplistic, but very chic. Glass glitter over styrofoam, mercury ball top, and a base made from stacking 2 fluted tins. A glue gun to join the styrofoam to the top tin, and of course I used a thin magnet to connect the two tins together.
This next example takes us away from the city chic, and brings us to an elegant forest.
Just one layer after the other, with a couple smaller balls on top.
These can be whipped up fairly quickly, so get crackin' if you haven't yet!
