It's officially that time of year.
You know, the time of year where I no longer seem like a crazy person for doing nonstop Christmas projects in November.
And I couldn't be more excited.
Virginia and December are like peas and carrots.
For lack of a better analogy.
It's also that time of year when I finally get to share our Christmas tree with you (and one of my favorite projects ever)!
I re-purposed, re-used, or made many of the ornaments, along with incorporating some stuff from last year.
While last year's tree colors were white and silver, this year I decided to go with green, gold, and silver.
It just kinda felt right after the recent addition of the gallery wall.
I even made some bright green pillows to tie it all together.
I kept most of the decor on the tree silver or gold and just added a few pops of green in the form of three jumbo ornaments.
I added tons of plain metallic ornaments from the dollar store, as well as some pinecones that I painted silver and some styrofoam balls rolled in glitter. A few tiny disco balls and some glittery stars also made their way into the mix.
To fill in the gaps between the branches of my lackluster little thrift store tree, I used some gold wire mesh ribbon and a bunch of giant gold ornaments.
And then I also tucked several jumbo green ornaments into the tree. They're kinda my fave.
I also added the button ornament that I made (tutorial here).
And even covered some silver ornaments in gold leaf.
Btw, tons of people asked last year about my ornament hooks. You can find them here (affiliate link). I'm obsessed with those things.
And speaking of ornaments....
I added my handmade ornament wreath to my handmade mantel.
Doesn't it just look so cute up there, side by side with my thrift store deer?
And because the mantel can only hold so much, I moved my little diy art off the mantel and onto the side table with a mirrored frame that holds my favorite little picture.
And now for my favorite addition to the Christmas decorations this year! Did you happen to notice what was going on beneath the tree?
The tree skirt!
I made a tree skirt, ya'll!
It's one of my favorite creations ever, and it cost me less than $10. I made it out of some basic ivory felt, and it was super easy to make. I'll be sharing the full tutorial on Friday, so don't miss it!
And that's all for today!
'Til next time!
