This Christmas season I really wanted to make my home cozy and full of Christmas decor. I am sharing some pictures with you, but unfortunately pictures never do anything justice. I tried to make as many decorations as I could myself. To name a few, I bought silver metallic spray paint and painted walnuts, pinecones, and oak leaves. I filled apothecary jars with the walnuts, used the pinecones in various places, and scattered the leaves on an end table. I bought whole cloves to decorate oranges in different patterns. This is a very easy ornament and smells really yummy too. I made burlap sacks to place the plastic plant holder of a mini tree and poinsettia. This just makes things a little more rustic looking. I used left over pine sprigs to fill little jars and added candy cane for a pop of color. I also used candy canes and peppermint sticks to fill my other apothecary jars. These jars are my new favorite accessory because they can be filled with various different items according to the season. I purchased red and white checked ribbon and tied it around various items. And in a previous post, I mentioned cranberry and dried orange strands that are easy and budget friendly. And last but not least, outdoors on my porch, I filled buckets with Pine trimmings, silver painted twigs, and pine cones.
This was definitely the most fun I have had decorating my home for Christmas yet. I look forward to relaxing at home and enjoying the holidays. I am fully in the Christmas Spirit and hope everyone else is too!!
