Christmas Decor

Hi everyone! I hope you spent a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families! I sure did! I also put up all my Christmas decorations on Friday. I'm keeping this pretty short because I have lots of pictures to share with you today. Get ready!




 Here's my homemade tree topper. Stop over at Between U & Me where I'm guest posting and sharing the tutorial on how I made it.

This year I decorated my tree with:
Vintage postcards

Plastic candy canes that I wrapped with twine

Family photos



 A year or two ago I saw a gorgeous muslin tree that Alice from Thoughts from Alice W made for her etsy shop. When I went to purchase one they were no longer available. So, I made one of my own and two others to go with it.

The Joy ornament is made from sticks that I just glued together. 

My glove and postcard garland!



Our snowman tree

Kitchen tree

Our son's tree


I decided to use this huge frame to hold our Christmas cards this year




I LOVE Hallmark ornaments! They are so pretty and have such great details!
This is the Winter Garden series

Winter Park series

Garland I made from hymnal pages and upholstery webbing
 
And of course, I can't forget the Christmas wreath I shared with you last week!

I hope you enjoyed seeing all of my Christmas decor! I look forward to seeing yours! Please be sure to follow me or check back here often. I have a couple of great giveaways coming up that I will be posting very soon!!
