Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas

Posted on Tue, 13 Dec 2011 by midcenturyjo


Looking for something just a little different for Christmas decorations? Take a little inspiration from interior designer Chad Falkenberg who has just finished “decking the halls” of a number of Vancouver shops and restaurants for the season.  A wreath made from 100 beer cans, an upside down Christmas tree made from ribbon wrapped kraft paper boxes and a twinkle arch made of live plum trees. Don’t tell my husband about that wreath or we’ll be working through a couple of cartons of beer to get one made before the big day! And I don’t even like beer. You can see more on Chad’s blog.

I love the lit branches…and the hanging presents…love this inspiration. co

I think I like the idea of the hanging presents more than I like the actual finished results.

Beer wreaths are also a good idea, but in my experience very few good beers come in cans.

Oh that wreath is too funny…and kind of cool looking to0!

So cool! The reuse of objects is very appropriate and quite stunning.

I might try the lit branches by just gathering some from the woods and tying together over my balcony. What a great idea and so simple!

The packages are also very different and the boxes can be reused.

I love the lights and the presents…so creative and so cool.
Love the concept and the execution.

I'll have to look into the shop with the twinkle arch the next time I walk by. It's just around the corner.

Wait a sec…. they're all around the corner. I recognise them all.

The hanging presents are beautiful. It would be fantastic to recreate a smaller version of it at home.
