Decorating our front porch for the Christmas holidays was a new task for me this year! In previous years I use to hang a fresh wreath and garland and call it a day. But not this year! I had so much fun pulling out the galvanized buckets and combining fresh and faux greens!
The weather this week has been in the high seventies and low eighties all week. I cannot believe it is the week before Christmas and it’s been this warm. But there is a silver lining for our family. And that is our back porch! Today I’m talking all about decorating our back porch for the holidays.
Decorating our family room for the holidays was so much fun. I think the red has made such a difference in this room. And I am not sure if we will have to wait for valentines day for it to reappear! I mean those pillows aren’t even from Christmas!
Oh my gosh. You know when you have an idea in your head for a DIY, but you are afraid that it might not work? I have been so nervous about my DIY because I found two perfect items that I truly believed would make a perfect coffee table. Fortunately, the idea became reality.
Today I’m sharing with you a MIY Project with Old Barn Milk Paint.
I can honestly say that it never occurred to me to decorate my master bedroom for Christmas. Apparently, I am clueless because I have never decorated any bedroom in our home for the holidays.
But that has all changed.
As I sit here and realize our house is finally decorated for the holidays, I can catch my breath for a minute. As much as I loved decorating every room in our house, decorating the kitchen for Christmas was a special experience.
As much as I struggled this year with decorating for Christmas, I do have to say I am very happy how it turned out… especially Christmas in my living room. This was the first time I have decorated our entire house and I learned a lot. Don’t overdo it. Stay true to the look and feel of your home. And don’t get intimidated by what you see on all of the beautiful Instagram feeds. (That last one was the biggie for me.)
Every once in a while it’s nice to find an easy holiday DIY. Don’t get me wrong, I am the queen of long and drawn out DIY’s. But when I was at home goods and saw some adorable pom pom trees for $29.00 each I decided it was DIY time. So I went to Hobby Lobby and found everything I needed for pom pom Christmas trees! And of course, it was on sale. So my cost for each tree was less than $10.
Back in July when all of you were posting beach photos, I was posting Christmas Craft DIY photos here on my blog. Some of you thought I was crazy. In fact, a lot of you couldn’t believe I was posting Christmas ideas when it was ninety degrees outside! But now that it is almost December, can I tell you how happy I am that I have so many of these completed?
