Target, with some handmade crafts sprinkled in.
chalkboard frame myself and added an ornament garland from Target.
Jenni Bowlin that I did with my silhouette. A little bit of glitter never hurts either.
mini marquee letters (follow the link for my pictures and how to info) from years past, also made by me. These are paper but have held up really well over time and even survived the move! This year I added some evergreen sprigs from the tree farm and Avinash's new nutcracker.
I actually went back and took down the felt banner. It was too much and making everything feel too cluttered. I like it better this way, softer, more neutral with just little pops of color. I think it helps the little details stand out more, like the vintage number and the leaves on the Diwali layout I put out for fun.
Supplies: foraged tree branch, punched stars, cotton balls, string + needle
Instructions: I spritzed the white cardstock with a little silver before punching the stars. I used the needle and thread to string the stars and cotton balls up. Avinash and I worked on the cotton balls together but I did the stars myself because the paper needed a bit more pressure and I didn't want him poking himself. I used plain cotton thread here. Then I tied the strings to the branch and situated it on the mantle.
I think it would look darling in the new baby's room too. You know, assuming that he ever gets his own room and we somehow manage to clear all the unpacked boxes out of the spare room.
Glitter Ornaments we made last year have held up pretty well and went back on the tree too.
Thanks for visiting! In my etsy shop, in addition to my washi tape samplers I added a holiday set as well. This set is cool because it comes with red and gold glitter twine and glitter ribbon. Check out the Christmas washi tape sampler here. I really had fun with the colors here, lots of red, green, silver and gold with pops of teal, chalkboard and lime. Every order from now until the end of December also comes with a free gift. Use code WASHI for 10% off any order or code RAINBOWS for free domestic shipping.
