Last year I didn’t have a Christmas wreath on our sad little front door but this year in our new house with a beautiful entryway there was no way I could go without! Wreaths out there were either too expensive for me, too big, too small or just…meh. So I made my own which I love because nobody else has one. I’m feeling festive so I guess I will share with you guys 😉
I purchased a plain artificial wreath but you could also use a fresh one! Once I fluffed up the wreath and gave it a good shape, I sprayed on snow, topped with a large burlap bow and added the CUTEST pair of ice skates in the center. Vintage holiday decor is my favorite and I have been eyeing them up at Hobby Lobby since last year. When I found them again I couldn’t bear to leave them behind. I don’t really have anywhere to hang more decorations so this was the perfect solution!
Have you made any of your Holiday decorations?
If you can’t stand people who love Christmas, LOOK AWAY NOW because today I am bringing you some DIY Christmas wall art!
Move over Fall, Halloween and Thanksgiving, it’s officially my time! I’m not obnoxious about it. I won’t decorate for a while and blast carols from my speakers but I ADORE Christmas. I find it amusing how genuinely disgruntled many people become when others get in the Christmas spirit. You don’t see me pitchin’ a fit when you all go crazy for pumpkins in August so hush. We can have Halloween decor in stores in July but now I’m the worst for loving Christmas 8 weeks in advance? As they say in the South, bless your heart!
Christmas was always a special time for me and since moving away from home it’s become even more. It was incredibly difficult last year to spend my first Christmas in 27 years away from home. It was even harder to participate in others’ ‘traditions’ that just did not feel right to me. Overall it was just a really emotional and sad time for me. I feel very strongly about carrying on my own Holiday traditions especially now that we are expecting. I can’t wait to have Santa Claus again in our home and the magic of Christmas that only children can bring!
So since November is just one sleep away I am sharing with you a super easy festive wall art I made over the weekend. This involves nothing but glue and some craft paint! You know me, I like the easy stuff!
I picked up this distressed hanging pallet piece a few weeks ago at the craft store and separately, this laser cut decoration. There was no real plan for either and placing them haphazardly on the counter resulted in this project! I decided to paint the cut-out gold + gold glitter top coat and attach it to the pallet. It makes a great piece of wall art that is simple yet festive! Remember you can also stain or paint an unfinished pallet very easily if you can’t find or don’t want a distressed look.
First I left it painted gold with the leaf element glittered only but I loved the sparkle so much, I did the whole thing! It’s not overly glittery just a gorgeous shimmer than catches the light.
