Pretty Quick: A Simple Trick for Holiday Glow

9 Nov

Ceiling Fan Candle HoldersChances are, you may be opening your home to friends and family a bit more than usual over the next few weeks as Thanksgiving approaches. (Yes, Thanksgiving. Not Christmas. Love ya Christmas, but please wait your turn, ok?)

If you’re like me, images of a beautifully warm and decorated home dance through your head when you think about entertaining, but the realities of time and budget can get in the way.

I thought I’d share a little trick that will add some holiday glow to your home on the cheap. No one will ever know how little you spent.

Well, I’ll know…but your secret is safe with me.

Pin It

I found these ceiling fan glass shades for under a dollar a piece at my local Goodwill store. They are a beautiful smoky gray with almost a carnival glass effect. Flipped over and lit by tea lights, they give off a lovely, soft glow.

You can find glass shades like this at Goodwill stores or a Habitat Re-Store, if there’s one in your area.

Got to love a happy home trick for less than the cost of a latte.

Have you found any second-hand treasures lately? What’s your best tip for making a room feel cozy on the cheap?
