chalkboard-mantel-christmas-family-room I am a big fan of decorating that I love and that can be done in 10 minutes or less. I love it so much that I started a whole series on it, called 10 Minute Decorating Ideas. I know, a very revolutionary name. Last year I shared how I used three of our vintage galvanized maple buckets and used a chalk pen to write JOY on them. Since there was such a great response to that, I thought I would share the new version that I did this year. Galvanized-Christmas-Buckets Instead of using three buckets, I used one this time. I simply wrote free hand and then added some simple snowflakes, all written with a chalk marker. It literally took just a few minutes and then I dropped in a small artificial tree and placed in front of the tree in our family room. And how sweet is the little cardboard house found at Michael's early this season? chalkboard-maple-bucket-christmas-tree Happy 10 minute decorating and thank you so much for stopping by.
