here's an easy simple idea that's economical, time & material-wise.
with a bit of ribbon & a few Christmas ornaments
hung from a simple ornate curtain rod
a simple elegant holiday statement wall
i used simple coat hooks with double hooks to mount rod and simply tied a Christmas ball on each end of various lengths of "rope-like" ribbon and draped over rod. the centerpiece was mad with 3" wide wire ribbon and two ornaments with tiny curling metallic ribbon. easy-peezy.... BEAUTIFUL!
