steal these ideas: holiday décor hacks from cb2

avec with snowball wreath

CB2 has to be the coolest store on the planet: Not only do they make affordable, modern, well-designed furniture, but they also allow their stylists to get creative with their products for catalog staging. And cooler still, they often post how-tos for these crafty hacks on their blog, In the Loop. The blog is brimming with tutorials from their most recent edition, like the minimalist snowball wreath shown above. I think the idea to use a ladder as an impromptu tannenbaum is really fun, (and I’ve heard it’s a Kinderclausen tradition). And for folks who don’t have room for a tree in it’s entirety, or just need a high-impact item over the dining room table, this branch chandelier is a striking and inexpensive way to go. Check out the site for more ambitious holiday tutorials, as well as great inside tips from the folks behind the cool. –Megan B.

I find the string of the lights around the ladder and interesting concept. I inspired me or gave me the idea of creating a wooden board tree now. Maybe to hang ornaments on.


Just discovered your blog while poking around the internet for last minute Christmas decoration ideas. You gave me enough to keep me busy all week!
