If you need to put together some last minute Christmas décor, try making vignettes that are quick, easy, and use items you probably have on hand.
When decorating for Christmas, I like to add at least a little touch of festive holiday décor to lots of the tabletops in my house. Creating simple vignettes using pitchers, greenery and small seasonal items that I already have is a budget friendly way to do that.

Decorative pitchers are great to use as vases. I use them frequently as centerpieces. It doesn’t take a lot of seasonal decor to fill them. For these three vignettes, I used two that are ivory and one copper pitcher.
Easy Christmas Vignettes
I started by gathering items from my Christmas bins that would look good in the pitchers. I used most of the items pictured here and decided not to use a few pieces.
Usually, I would add a floral foam block to the bottom of the pitcher, but I didn’t have any on hand and these projects were all about using what I already had. I found a bag full of cotton balls that I hadn’t opened, so I had plenty to use for the ivory pitchers.
I added soft Christmas garland on top of the cotton balls and brought it up to the rim of the pitcher.
This little jingle bell added a bit of color to the arrangement, but before placing it in the pitcher, I added a wood skewer so that it wouldn’t fall down below the greenery.
For the greenery, I used pieces of stiff garland ties. These come in handy for so many things at Christmas. I used the on my stair railings, on the outdoor railings with lights, as filler on small trees and more.
To use the ties for the vignettes, I cut them in half and placed them in the pitcher. Next, I added some beaded stems, two jingle bells, faux baby’s breath, a small pinecone, and finally a couple of candy canes.
Once the pitcher was finished, I added a small candle next to it on a table that sits just inside our front door. For the candle I removed the label and added vinyl lettering using my Cricut to say “Be Merry.” Some red and white baker’s twine is tied into a bow around the bottom of the candle.
For our foyer table, I used the copper pitcher that I often keep on this table with flowers. I added large Christmas stems without filler to this because the stems are long and full. Next to the pitcher, I added two small greenery stems with pinecones, battery operated candles, and some copper jingle bells.
The bottom shelf of the table has a small tree wrapped in a burlap and decorative candle holders.
The second ivory pitcher was done using the same process as the first one. For this one, I added more pinecones, a red berry bunch, a couple of wood slices with self adhesive designs on them, and more candy canes.
This one is in our sunroom on a side table near our main Christmas tree. I placed a candle on the table next to it for the simple vignette.
All three of these simple vignettes turned out pretty and added some festive touches to the tabletops. I always love using what I have on hand in different ways to create new looks.
Since these can be put together in minutes, you can add some last minute decor to your home if you have a few spaces that still need a little decorating.
