Well here it is December 21st and I finally finished my Christmas Decorating :)
I think I changed the mantle at least 5 times!
I LOVE fresh garland and I put it everywhere!
I removed the bins/crates from this basket and placed a few wintery items inside.
The cute tarnished brass tree I snagged at the Goodwill yesterday for only .99 cents!
I made a makeshift table out of this table.
And this round gold mirror.
I wanted to add something simple so of course I went straight to Pinterest and found the perfect idea.
Bowls + Moss + Candles
I already had all of the supplies on hand!
I put some sand in the containers and placed the moss over the top and stuck some candle sticks in!
I am wondering how long they will last before Abby gets to them!
I changed up the chalk wall as well.
I also painted this old frame we had on hand gold, cut some chalkboard to fit and included a little fresh garland on the top.
These plates I removed from the old chalk wall.
I included some red velvet ribbon bows and hung them along with a couple of silver pieces and some garland to the top of the window.
Our plan is to find more plates/pieces and fill the space up but for now this is what I have come up with.
A fresh evergreen wreath along with some old ice skates and this knitted throw are the perfect addition to this old ladder.
The colored candles I picked up at Yarbro’s Antique Mall for a heck of a deal!
70% off at Tis The Season’s clearance booth!
I tacked some red velvet ribbon to the lamp shade with a hot glue gun.
And the tree skirt is an actual skirt from my closet :)
I made the flag bunting garland out of old book pages.
And the “Move Mountains” ornament I received free with my Miss Mustard Seed Order.
This swag was originally on the mantle but I decided it looked better here on the buffet in the Dining Room.
We made some barn board Christmas trees for our booth and of course I had to keep one for myself!
I also added some evergreen to the chandelier and included some ribbon, beads and ornaments.
I did not do much in our bedroom but I did add a little bit of bling to the fireplace.
And this is as far as I got in the hearth room.
But they are super cute trees!
I kept the front porch simple as well.
And last but not least a little love for the mailbox.
Happy New Year!!!
