I've finally finished my Christmas decor. I've been enjoying all the lovely Christmas decor in blog land so I knew I needed to get busy and finish mine. I usually do some simple touches in the living and dining area, but I spent too much time deciding what to do, so it took a bit longer. I knew I wanted to do a softer wintry theme for my mantel this year and reuse things I already had, so once I finished that the rest went more smoothly.
The deer and trees are from last year's mantel. I painted all of them a frosty white and added glitter to the edges of the trees. It gives the mantel an entirely different look from the gold deer and green trees of last year. The tall jars are filled with ornaments and tied with soft green fabric ribbon. Also the faux greenery is from last year and I added some pine cones.
I covered my burlap frame with some vintage looking musical notes paper and used it for a backdrop for my wreath. I like the soft touches of red in this paper. I was lucky to find this wreath at Joann's, since it was in a pile of Christmas things with a clearance price of 4 dollars! I love the sweet simplicity of the pine cones and frosty branches.
I found these deer last year at Michael's. I added the silver glitter collars last year and painted the antlers silver as well. I wanted a frosty silver theme on my mantel with touches of red and green.
I filled one of my wire baskets with some mod podged ornaments I made with more musical notes paper.
My little bookcase got a Christmas update with some items I've collected over the years and a few vintage things as well. I keep my decor fairly simple and also updated my family photo picture collage with some ribbon and snowflakes.
These are pictures from my Dad's side of the family when he and his siblings were children. I shared how I put this together in a previous post. You can find it here.
Instead of replacing pictures on the walls for the holidays, I just add something to give it some Christmas appeal.
I've had this sweet little tole painted caroler for quite a few years. I decided to display things that I could find easily and add some whimsical appeal.
A little snowmen globe from Dollar Tree.
I love making Christmas trees so I added one to my little bears.
A vintage snow globe of Santa.
Simple red berry wreath added to an old candle.
I keep my little bookcase decorated very simply for a little Christmas cheer.
I wanted to decorate my antique table in a soft frosty white, so I collected some things from around the house to create this vignette. I added a few musical note trees again and made some of yarn with snowflakes as well. Pine cones were added to my candle and I made room for my vintage caroling angel from last year.
I had extra white yarn and just added some silver snowflakes to make the tree for my snowbird.
I added another yarn tree to the top of this floral designed white stand.
The purity of white, with a few pops of color, casts such a lovely glow at Christmastime. I'm adding some finishing touches to my tree so I'll be showing that in the next couple of days. Thanks for visiting and Merry Christmas!
