I'm thinking...

...inside the box!
I have filled some old boxes to add to my Christmas decor this year. These boxes are not permanent so I can use them for other seasons and the items are not ruined by glue.. I fill them with basket filler and/or greens to help secure them. This is actually a sewing machine drawer. I found this darling girl dressed for winter in a outlet junk store . The glass deer was in a bottom of a box of Christmas stuff at a household sale.
This box is in my bathroom where I have a candy cane theme. It has 3 separate areas, each filled with basket filler and all topped with 'snow'.

I've picked up the canvas, wood and pipe cleaner candy canes a craft shows.
This red metal box is on my dining room table. My mantle is in this room and I chose a Santa theme this year for my Granddaughters. A couple old books and Santas and some greens is all it takes.
I've used a vintage tree skirt for a table topper.
Dig thru you boxes of Christmas stuff and use your imagination to think inside the box the Christmas!
