It's the new year, and I finally had time to work on my Christmas 2020 post. This post is going to be mostly photos with minimal description, just showing a quick tour of my Christmas home decor, so I figured I'd still post it even though it's late. I wanted to share some inspiration, and even if no one is interested in Christmas content right now, it's something I or anyone else can look back on at a later date. Enjoy!
The large wreath above the TV is a new addition this year. I had plans to flock it and add some picks, but the supplies I ordered came in late, so I didn't get around to it this year. But next year, I may document the process and create a post on how I decorate the wreath.
The pencil tree to the left of the fireplace is also a new addition. The tree was one my mom gave me two years ago, and I had never used it. But this year I put it up in the empty space next to the fireplace, and I absolutely loved it. It just pulled the whole space together.
This ornament was a DIY I was inspired to make this year, after watching a video by Megan from Glue Guns and Roses on Youtube. She has fantastic Dollar Tree DIY videos. This ornament was from one of her Dollar Tree Christmas Decorations videos, so it was really inexpensive to make. I made a few of them and may end up making some more next year because I love them so much.
If you know me personally, or have seen my previous two blog posts, you'll know that I had a baby this year, which is part of the reason why this blog post is so late.
This wall art piece is a DIY I made using a gift bag. I saw a lot of people framing cute gift bags to use as decor, so I was keeping an eye out for a cute bag to pick up. I couldn't easily find a frame to fit this particular design, so I just made a boarder for it using balsa wood and glued the entire piece to some foam board for stability.
Back in the fall, I purchased some wood stem floral filler from Dollar Tree just because I thought I'd be able to use it for something in the future. I ended up using some of the pieces to make these little wood bundles for my tiered tray. I simply tied three of the pieces together with twine and gave them a wash of white paint to mimic birchwood.
This wreath was another DIY I was inspired to make after watching a Youtube video. Kathryn from the channel Do It On a Dime made this wreath using wood houses from the Target dollar spot. I'm loving the look of more minimal, simplilstic wreaths, and I had already purchased a few packs of the wood houses, so I definitely had to make my own version.
This sled is the last DIY I made this year, also after watching a Youtube video. This DIY was originally created by Massi from the channel Masparkle DiYs, also using items from Dollar Tree and the Target dollar spot (in my opinion, those are two of the best places to get inexpensive decor items, great for DIY projects). Massi is a new content creator I found this year, and she makes really great home/seasonal decor.
