Hi, I'm Colleen Mullaney for: and I've got some great modern Christmas decorating tips for you today. You know modern Christmas decorating is really all about the boldness of it all and the sophisticated style. So here I have a little silver going on, we have some, a lot of reflection, we have some great little silver trees on, on a mirror tray and again this is really sophisticated and it's really sleek and yet if you throw a couple of candles on the tray you'll have a really great glow to it and it's perfect for the holiday decorating. Now, on our silver branches that are just branches that I've gotten outside and I spray painted silver, we have these great balls. Now, these are actually plastic balls that I got at the craft store and I filled them with pipe cleaners that I cut into little pieces and you know pipe cleaners come in so many different colors, so many different shapes but these are great and I cut them into about an inch and a half length, just fill them up and throw them around your branches and you know for a little added glam instead of using a ribbon this is actually a trim but you can get these at craft stores as well. So you just use this because it's a little iridescent and adds a little extra holiday sparkle and you see I have my birds with their feathers and with their glitter and glam, this is a really great modern sophisticated holiday look. Now, if color is what you're after we have plenty of that into a jelly jar, I love these jelly jars, you know they really, they make beautiful display pieces and all you need is a couple of ornaments and some really bright colors, different shapes, different textures, just toss them in there, make a nice arrangement and you've got yourself a beautiful holiday decoration and everything here you can find at home improvement stores or craft stores and you know the trick to filling a jelly jar is to use things with different shapes and different sizes. So you can get smaller things done at the bottom and then you can use the larger things towards the middle and then a couple of smaller things at the top so that your top can fit on. Now to add to our jelly jar you can either, these are actually beads, these are necklaces that I found at the party store and very inexpensive but I thought wouldn't they look so pretty just in a cluster in a clear cylinder next to my jelly jar. It makes a really great combination and it makes a really great colorful modern statement. So these are some really great modern day decorating ideas. Thanks for watching, I'm Colleen Mullaney.
