Christmas Home Tour


I spent most of Saturday getting all of our Christmas decor finished up. Some of it was stuff I already had and the rest was put together for cheap creatively haha.

Since this is our first year in an actual house versus an apartment, I was super stoked about finally having a banister to put a garland on. I got a $2 9 foot from Walmart and spot brushed white paint for a "snowy" effect.


Since we have a very tiny mantle I just wanted something simple so I draped some burlap and jingle bell garland.


The hubby and I found these little birdies in a small town that we vacationed at during our first anniversary. Aren't they just too cute?!


I found some twigs with pinecones and battery operated LEDs at Walmart and threw some greenery in to hold them up.


I'm totally obsessed with neutral Christmas decor so the shelves next to the TV are filled with various brown and white trinkets.


The "snow globe" mason jar was super easy--it's just a mini tree glued to a mason jar lid, filled with fake snow and flipped upside down. I got the idea from something similar that I saw on So Much Better With Age's Christmas Tour.


The coffee table is also super simple, mainly because we have a wild one-year-old running around! I just placed some greenery in our metal bowl and filled it with ornaments.


At Hobby Lobby I found glittery shatter resistant ones and clear ones that I just filled with fake snow. It reminds me of a bunch of snowballs!


One of my favorite things at Christmas time is a basket full of pinecones! This year I finally upgraded my basket.


I found this adorable tree at Gordmans. It's so sparkly and warm :) It would probably be easy to DIY too.


Our entry table is decked with my mini tree and candle that has sparkly twigs inside of it. This would also be easy to DIY, hmmm.....




I couldn't leave my year-round wreath out, so I hung a little snowflake ornament and instantly Christmas-fied it haha.


I couldn't find a table centerpiece that I loved in the stores, so of course I ended up making one which ended up being so much cheaper.





This week I'll share how I made the little Christmas tree board for the mudroom. It was super easy and since I only used scraps--cost $0.



There isn't much to our tree this year (the one-year-old...). I kept all of our pretty breakables packed away and only put out the shatter resistant ones.

It's kind of blah but still looks super pretty lit up at night :)


I'm also making some holiday pillows for the couch, but my fabric hasn't come. I ordered it last Monday and it STILL hasn't shipped. So frustrating!

Linking up to these awesome parties!

  3. You've done a wonderful job on your holiday decorations. I love the stocking on the stairs with the garland all your natural touches and the jingle bells you've used. I always forget about jingle bells but I love them so much.
