Thrift Store Decor for Christmas Tablescape
Some Thrift Store Items take center stage on this Christmas Tablescape. These items cost only pennies compared to what you would spend purchasing new ones.
The thrifted items on this table include the hurricane lantern centerpiece, wine glasses, grapevine wreaths used as chargers, and a set of black candle holders.
You can save so much money by recycling thrift store finds. Here are some additional tips for shopping in thrift stores.
The pinecones are foraged from our property and received a snowy flocking using this 2 Step Easy Technique. Faux cranberries were scattered on the greenery to help brighten the table and pull together the red-and-white theme.
New Items Used for the Christmas Tablescape
One of my favorite things to search for in vintage shops is dishes.
However, I love all dishes, and although these dishes from Bico Ceramics are new, they definitely have a vintage feel and work perfectly with the DIY Napkins & Tablecloth.

The DIY Table Runner includes ticking tassels for a festive tablescape. The ticking tassel tutorial was a DIY tutorial from earlier this year.
DIY Ticking Napkins with Cutlery Pocket
The cutlery pocket adds a unique touch to these DIY Ticking Napkins.
I was inspired to make these napkins after these patriotic napkins made for the 4th of July.
The wrought iron candle holders are another thrift store find, and with the addition of festive napkin rings, they look festive over the Christmas table.
Repurposed Candle Sticks
The thrift store candlesticks look up to date with a fresh coat of black chalk paint. Placing the candlesticks at the end of the table creates a unique and unexpected arrangement.
