I found these incredibly inspiring Christmas pictures on Dutch magazine vtwonen's site. They all show very simple DIY settings, made with just some white paint, newspapers, candles, sheets and string. And takeaway boxes as tea light holders, very cool and clever! All the other things you see are things that most of us already have at home, like cardboard boxes, a stool, a ladder, chairs and a big mirror. You just have to style them correctly, and they will help your christmas spirits right along.
