As I was scanning through my options for programming offered through direct tv deals southgate, I always find myself during this time of year stopping for periods of time to watch how designers transform homes into magical showplaces for the holidays. With the simple addition of a few holiday touches, any home can sparkle and shine. Last week on HGTV, a designer attached a plain, green wreath to a kitchen chandelier. She attached the wreath to the light fixture with three strands of beautiful silver ribbon. From the bottom of the wreath hung a handful of simple silver Christmas ornaments suspended with fishing line. The ornaments seemed to be floating magically from the wreath. It was a beautiful, yet simple idea that transformed a rather ordinary space into a place inviting for any holiday feast. What I was even more impressed with was the ease of this project. Sometimes designers on these shows make these do-it-yourself projects seem so effortless, but for the amateur, these projects never translate into such easy tasks. This project, however, required minimal skill, and could be done in a matter of minutes.
