This last weekend was the traditional weekend to put up Christmas decorations and trees. Unless you’re like me and went full on Christmas Spirit a month ago. Anyway, I thought I would share just a few simple decorations from around the house.
We actually have 3 large storage bins full of decorations, but once they are spread throughout the house it doesn’t seem like that much. It’s amazing how cheering just a little red and green can make things!
This is my favorite Christmas item! My Grandma made it and every time I see it I think of her and smile. I remember the huge smile she had the last Christmas we got to spend with her. She was like a kid in a candy shop! She was one of those Grandma’s that could DIY anything and everything. To this day I treasure every handmade item/gift of hers that I have.
We don’t have a chimney, not that Sky even realizes what that is all about. I thought this was cute though especially since it was only $1 at the dollar store! Once Sky is a bit older we will hang it outside Christmas Eve. Seriously check out the dollar store for Holiday decorations!
I used Christmas printed tape and Instagram pictures to make a Christmas tree on the freezer door. It’s so simple and almost silly, but it added a nice Christmas touch to a large white appliance! I do believe I got this idea from A Beautiful Mess (ABS).
P.S. All pictures have been edited with the A Beautiful Mess App. I’ll get this out of my system soon! There are just so many cool tools to play with. And, no I’m not a spokesperson nor have I been asked by anyone to talk about ABS as much as I have the last few posts.
When do you decorate for Christmas?
Christmas lights…colored or white?
I like white lights the best, blue and green second.
Do you have a real tree or fake?
Does anyone get flocked trees anymore?
I have never seen one in real life in anyone’s house!
Does your house look like Santa and the elves moved in, or is it subtle Christmas Cheer?
