It's About That Time...

Time to break out the Christmas decorations and transform your home for the holiday season! Every year I do the same thing with my decor, except for changing up my Christmas tree color scheme. I'm a little bored so this year I'm going to try some new things, primarily DIY decorations to save $$. Check out these festive and fairly simple ideas...hopefully you'll find some inspiration too! What fun decoration ideas do you have in mind for the holidays? Have a wonderful weekend! xoxo - Julie

  8. Love all these suggestions. All very simple DIY projects, yet totally unique. Especially like the chevron tablecloth.

  9. Great ideas here! I've done the chandelier with ornaments, glass cloches (actually, it's a footed cake plate with dome) with ornaments... I'm going to have to do the wrapping paper on foam board now.

    Thanks so much for the collection.
