First off, let's start with another one of my ridiculously easy DIY's that end up looking really lovely. I literally took a handful of rocks my kid had collected from around the yard, gave them a good washing in the utility tub, and then let them dry. I spread them out on a plastic table cloth and then simply spray painted them gold with something like Krylon 1000 Premium Metallic Spray Paint, Gold
Regular rocks are always lovely for adding a natural touch to a display, but by painting them gold I know had something to give a little extra holiday glam. I filled a vase with the gold rocks then topped it off with a few natural treasures from the yard, and volia!
One other way to add some holiday glam very inexpensively is to hunt down vintage brass. I collect it, I hoard it, and occasionally sell it. There are all sorts of lovely pieces to be found from peacocks to pineapples, but I think brass deer or a rocking horse are perfect for the holidays. Display your brass with evergreen branches, piniecones, or even glass bulb ornaments to add to the festive look.
