Decorate your home and garden with the West's winter colors and beautiful natural materials
Let a black-and-white palette be the antidote to tinsel and flashing colored lights. Spray-paint inexpensive nutcrackers white,
then place them at attention beneath a paper-loop wreath. If you happen to have dark walls, this look can be especially pleasing.
DIY: Cut white and ivory paper in 1- by 8-inch strips. Bring the ends together to form a teardrop shape; tape or staple to secure. Hot-glue the loops to a wreath form, layering them tightly. Nutcrackers and candlesticks, Michaels. Stockings, Serena & Lily. Moroccan rug, Elsie Green House & Home.
