I can’t believe Christmas day is only in a few days. My little one is so excited and beyond all the chaos in my head, I am too. We will be spending part of the holidays with my family and knowing this, I promised my husband not to get carried away with decorating. Surprisingly, I kept this very promise and have managed to only add a few bits of holiday cheer around our home.
I will share some of the photos I have taken. And a peek into some DIYs I was able to complete as well.
This is a partial shot of the living room, where I added throw pillows that I made. I will share a tutorial on this in a later post this week, so stay tuned.
This year, I even agreed to buying an artificial tree! Since I would not be able to personally care for a fresh cut tree, it did not seem like a bad idea. I will admit the tree looks good and is pretty low maintenance. But next year, I will probably go back to my traditional fresh cut tree.
Below is my littlest helping decorate, last year she was too small to help and this photo will make a nice memory for years to come.
In our dining room, I slightly decorated the table with some pine needle branches, berries, pine cones and a white table runner. Did you spot the wooden sign in the background? I will spill details on how I made this on another post.
I added this cute Christmas countdown printable that I found for free here to our kitchen countertop. My oldest has been so happy to take on the job of keeping up with it.
Lastly, is canvas that I made a few years ago when I first started getting into DIYs. And I have hung it it every year since, like a trophy!
I hope you enjoyed the few details that I shared here. Our house is still pretty new to our family, so I hope that my next holiday decor post will have a lot more to share. Come back to check out some my future posts on the DIYs I shared.
