My Christmas Decor 2017
I haven’t stopped creating since making my Thanksgiving Table with nearly every waking hour spent on making this year’s Christmas decorations. Everything you will see was made by me. I hate shopping for holiday decor because I am easily distracted & I go in wanting classic Christmas but end up bringing home flamingo pink. I kept it simple this year and only put up what I actually made. I hope y’all enjoy & inspires you to go out make something too!
I made everything in the photos below, including the built-in with one exception. I did not make the garland. I can’t be good at everything.
Yes, I am tired.
Yes, it was worth it.
Can you smell the gingerbread from there? It’s delicious! Now, some may wonder why they are different colors…well….you see what happened was…I didn’t have all the proper ingredients initially but that didn’t keep me from making them. LOL. Some may call me “determined”.
Can you see the “frost” on the mirrors? It’s a little hard to see but if you look close under the snowflakes you’ll see the white powdery texture. No, it’s not snow spray. It’s dry shampoo.
Yes! Dry shampoo.
I made this tree last year as a last minute display for a morning show out of wood shims, epsom salt, glass beads, mason jar and copper battery powered fairy lights. I just love the simplicity!
Theses paperwhites were an amazing find from Trader Joe’s!
Really, I bought them for the vase. I LOVE forcing bulbs all winter so I am going to get a lot of use out of them.
If you can believe it, this garland is even more beautiful in person.
Next up, my front door decor!
