To say that I LOVE decorating, at any time of the year, is an understatement. However, at Christmas it is definitely heightened! I absolutely LOVE decorating for CHRISTMAS! So, since we moved, this year, I wanted to add a few new decorations to my new home! The only thing is I didn't have a very large budget. So, I had to be smart about it. That's where Pinterest came in to play. I would say Pinterest is like crack to me! I just can't get enough! I love all the DIY projects you can find, as well as photos that help inspire you to create a warm and beautiful home environment. Here are a few projects I tackled this holiday season, along with pictures of the pinterest photos that inspired them!
Glitter Letter Stocking Monogram
My New Stockings:
I used a tutorial off of pinterest that can be found here to make the glitter letters!
I loved how they turned out!
Pinterest Mantle Inspiration:
My Completed Project:
I got the frame at Hobby Lobby for 50% off the original price!
I used a fresh boxwood wreath from Whole Foods because the preserved kind were a little out of my price range this year.
Pinterest Mini Wreath Inspiration:
My Mini Wreaths:
I used $0.99 embroidery hoops and painted them green. Then, I went out in my backyard and clipped fresh greenery for the wreaths. Floral wire was used to apply the greenery to the hoop.
I just love little details like this!
