The Friday Countdown to Christmas continues. Did you know that there are only 6 more Fridays left! Time is flying. Are you getting ready?
I am trying my hardest to get myself organized for Christmas this year. So far I am in control. This past week, I took a look in a big basket I keep in my guest room. I buy gifts all year long and place them in the basket. I took a look to remind myself what I have bought and to make a list on the gifts I still need to buy.
I also brought all the Christmas decorations down from the attic where they are stored. I keep everything I have made over the years, but don’t use all of it. I edit the decorations I will use each year.
Instead of making a new project to share with you today, I thought I would show you my favorite holiday decorations that I have used in past years and that made the cut this year.
I made this Trash to Treasure Ornament Bowl the first year I started blogging. I used two unmatched pieces I found at the thrift store. I have used it in my foyer every Christmas since making it.
This Tabletop Knitting Needle Tree is taken apart to be stored each year since all that is holding it up is a knitting needle. It is super easy to make.
I like to hang souvenirs and keepsakes on my tree. I call them memory ornaments. I have shared more in my post, Memory Ornaments. This key to my childhood home is my favorite.
I used real greens to make these outdoor Hook-On Greenery for Outdoor Light Fixtures decorations , but this year I am going to make them with artificial greens so I can reuse them each year. Wait until you see how easy it is to make and hang them.
I made this Photo Frame Tree Stand Cover last year. I used it around the artificial tree in my dining room. This year I am going to use it around the real tree for the family room.
I love preserved boxwood wreaths, but they are pricey. Last year I decided to make my own using paper – Paper Boxwood Wreath. I included a free printable of the leaves in my post. It is fast and easy to make if you have a digital cutting machine.
I will be making a few more decorations this year and will be showing them over the next 6 weeks.
Have you started thinking about how you are going to decorate this year?
