What colors do you do for Christmas? I pretty much always include red except for the year I did an all neutral theme. DecoArt challenged us to use silver/white/blues for a Christmas project this month and if I was to do a wintery/blue theme this is how I imagine it! Silver, white, snowy, and muted blues and grays. Maybe one year I’ll leave my tree up after Christmas and do a winter white/blue theme – that would be pretty and fun!

I really loved this silver metallic paint – it was so pretty on this 3d wood snowflake!
And the other 4 colors – white, a light silver, a muted gray blue, and a dark blue I used on the other snowflakes. I think this muted color palette is so pretty!
When the last coat of paint was drying I sprinkled some epsom salt on it to add some texture and sparkle.
All that was left was to thread some twine through the holes and they were ready to hang!
They look especially pretty on my flocked tree!
What color theme are you doing for Christmas this year?

They are beautiful. I am having a new kitchen at the moment and can’t get to my craft room as it is full of saucepans and kitchen utensils? I hope that after this weekend, I may be able to get in and start some Christmas crafting. Love from Cornwall, England. X
My preferred color scheme for Christmas is red, green and gold, with a combination of rustic and vintage decorations. I have been collecting ornaments for years representing milestones in our lives, my kids activities and interests, vacations, etc. so have a wide variety, and I fill in with gold tinsel garland and red wooden bead garland, and red and green ball ornaments. I enjoy snowmen decorations as they can be left out longer, and I’m also partial to gingerbread people and houses for my kitchen. I have been know to leave my tree put through February as I enjoy it so much in the cold dark winter evenings. Sometimes I will at least remove the ornaments and other decorations around the house and just leave the tree with lights and garland on for awhile.
