My 11th & 12th Favorite Holiday Decor Items: Bells & Mirrors
My next two favorite holiday decorating items are bells and mirrors.
Bells are somewhat obvious with their jingle sound, but their shine and shape also appeal to me. My grandmother used to hang a garland of silver bells over a door way in her house and now I have that strand. I use it in different ways each year, but it always says "holiday" to me.
Bells shaped as wreaths, star shapes or bowls filled with bells are other great ways to include this great decorating item.
I love mirrors for the same reason I love bells - the sparkle factor. When placed properly, they reflect light and create shine. I love them used as trays to hold candles, silver and glass containers.
They make for great backdrops to fire place displays, too (disclaimer: when you are aren't using the fire place!). I wish I had some photos of mirrors with holiday decor, but I don't! Maybe you do? Send any pictures my way and I'll post them!
Happy decorating and lucky number 13, my last favorite holiday decorating item is next! Stay tuned.
