Clever Creations sells holiday home decor, including nutcrackers, wooden advent calendars, stockings, garland, wreaths—pretty much any holiday decor you can think of. Their Amazon store front features all of their holiday decor and they have a special Nutcracker Collection on their website.
A few days ago, I spent a couple of hours decorating my home using products from Clever Creations. I am absolutely obsessed with these products and even more so with how the decorating turned out.
As usual, I start my holiday decorating in the kitchen. If I don't, it always ends up look bare when compared to the finished look of my living room.
What I did first was make use of the wooden chalkboard my sister made. I'd been trying to figure out what to do with it, so I decided to use it to spread some holiday cheer and hung it over the stove.
To compliment the chalkboard, I added this Reindeer Christmas Decoration from Clever Creations.
The Clever Creations Reindeer Holiday Decoration is amazing. I love everything about it. It's three reindeer—from smallest to largest—and it lights up using two AA batteries. The first reindeer has a wood grain look, the second is white, and the third is a copper color, and they rest on a black stand. It fits in beautifully with our kitchen decor.
On the other side, I added a small bucket with fake flowers (I had this sitting around) and hung a Noel pot holder that I picked up from my local dollar store.
On the counter next to the stove, I placed this incredible 24-day wooden advent calendar, also from Clever Creations. Didn't I tell you their products are AMAZING?
The advent calendar is truly incredible! After opening the package, my husband immediately said, "Wow!" and asked me to pass it over so that he could get a good look at it. He remarked on how nice it was and I had to agree. It is my favorite of all the decorations.
The Santa Claus and "Merry Christmas" message both light up with LED lights that are powered by two AA batteries. It fits in perfectly with our kitchen's holiday decor.
There are twenty-four wooden drawers to count down the days until Christmas.
Each drawer is about two inches long, an inch wide, and a little over an inch deep. Inside, you can fit small toys or candies. My husband was able to fit two Starbursts, one mini Three Musketeer bar, and a Tootsie Roll into one of the drawers.
The quality of this advent calendar is great. I am very impressed. I've never owned a holiday piece this awesome and I'm so happy to have it as a part of our winter decor.
Moving along into our "dining area," we have a beautiful wooden star shadow box.
This Hanging Wooden Star Shadow Box Decoration lights up using three AAA batteries to illuminate the house scene with pines. Clever Creations really is pretty darn awesome, huh?
This shadow box can be hung on the wall using a nail, or free-standing on a side table or fireplace mantel.
I love the wood grain design of this shadow box. Even more so, I love that way it looks over our kitchen table.
As a table centerpiece, we're using a Red and Gold Ornament Christmas Wreath. The wreath can be hung on a door or a wall, or used as a centerpiece for your dining or coffee table.
I couldn't decided if I wanted it on the dining table or the living room table. It looked great on both, especially with a candle holder in the center, filled with other Christmas ornaments. It'd probably look even more amazing with some Poinsettias.
Here's a picture of ours on the coffee table with our black candle holder in the center (I added the ribbon to the top of the candle holder for a more festive look).
In the living room, which is my favorite place to decorate, I decided to place the Clever Creations Artificial Garland with Pine Cones and Berries.
While the garland didn't come with lights, I was able to purchase a small strand of white lights from my local dollar store for less than two dollars. It worked out beautifully.
On each side of the mantel, I placed these gorgeous white metal and glass lanterns. They're actually made to hold candles, but I filled them with Christmas ornaments for a festive look. I love the way they turned out!
Next to my lanterns, I placed this wooden Snowman Nutcracker.
Clever Creations has dozens of nutcrackers to choose from, including pirates, cowboys, football players, and more.
To finish off the look, I placed this mini artificial Christmas tree (with decorations already on) in the living room. I was going to keep it next to the fireplace on the hearth, but I finally decided that it looked best on our living room table.
I also picked up these sparkly golden ball ornaments but I haven't put them to use yet. Once we get our Christmas tree (which will likely be the last week of November or the first week of December), I'm going to hang these up—so stay tuned for pictures of that!
These ornaments are light, so they won't weigh down your tree. Last year, some of our decorations were too heavy for the tree and kept falling off. It was a pain! This year, I won't have to worry about that.
I can't wait to pick up more of their inexpensive holiday decor!
