How to Spice up a Traditional Mailbox for Christmas
We have had a snowy start to December here in Atlanta and its been putting me in the best Christmas spirit! I have been so inspired to decorate literally everything, including my mailbox! I am going to show you how I spiced up a traditional mailbox for Christmas to be a beautiful vintage decoration. I had my friend Neeley down to help decorate and we started with adding some cheap faux greenery from Amazon. Just wrap it around randomly and boom, you have the base to add fresh greenery on top. We needed to add something to spice it up, so we went looking outside for some Magnolia leaves, boxwood, holly berries and cypress to place on top of the faux greenery! You can really be as creative as you want with add ins to your mail box. I went and bought some fresh baby pinecones (which I used in a lot of places around the house!) which are cheap at your local florist or wholesale dealer so it’s a total win! We added those where we felt needed and it really brought together the whole box!
I wanted to add some cuteness to it, so I used some gold tulle that I got from Amazon and some plaid red ribbon to layer. The bow is super easy to make; all you do is cut the ribbons and tulle a pretty long length, so you have some room for it have extra to hang and simply fold it into bunny ears one at a time. Keep going around until you have the desired bow size. Easy right? Next, I just secured it with some extra red ribbon and stuck in between the greenery. To our surprise it was snowing and a ton of it. It really looked like a winter wonderland! So I added the final touch to the mailbox and went to play around in the snow with the girls. It was such a perfect snowy day! Make sure you check this post out on how to spice up your staircase…seeded eucalyptus is probably my favorite greenery to decorate with. It’s so festive and pretty when you style it with a basic garland strand OR fresh blooms for your dining table or guest room. Stay tuned for my holiday guest room!!
