But maybe you are more of a traditionalist and you prefer the classic red & green!
I’m not much of a traditionalist myself, but I have a handful of red and green holiday decorations that I just can’t seem to part with.
Plus, I whipped up a couple of Christmas decorations in red and green to sell at Reclaiming Beautiful this year.
For starters, I found this oil can at a garage sale last summer and loved the patina of the red paint.
I washed it up with some Dawn dish-washing liquid (to cut the grease), I added a couple of Tim Holtz rub-ons, and then I clipped on a Dec 25 card.
It definitely makes for a unique Christmas decoration, despite its classic red color.
Next I purchased a green kid-size shovel from my friend Sue a few weeks ago. She always has the best garage sale finds. Unfortunately, I neglected to take a ‘before’ photo of it. But I added a “Merry Christmas” in adhesive backed white vinyl that I cut on my Cricut machine.
I already had another similar shovel that I stenciled last year …
The shovels would be perfect hung on a door.
Last year I used the older one in the planter on my deck.
And finally, I painted this Christmas Tree sign for my sister using traditional red and green yesterday.
She stopped by to pick it up, and already has it hanging on the wall above her Christmas tree.
How about you? Are you a traditionalist who loves red and green for Christmas?
