My Home for the Holidays

Our Work | December 13, 2011

So I got out all my Christmas decor that I’ve used for years and years and I decided that I was sick of it. Does that happen to anyone else? So I’ve changed up some things and added a few new pieces that I really love. 
Welcome to my Home at the holidays! 
I bought this welcome mat at Pottery Barn. It was on sale for like $20 I think. I love it because it’s wintery and not Christmasy so I can keep it out all season. Plus the little blue bird matches my house! 
I saw this amazing window decal on Pintrest and I became obsessed with it. I wanted to recreate the look without the $120 price tag. So I  bought some window paint online and just drew it myself.  It is obviously not as cool looking as the decal but it’s close enough.
and you can’t beat the $9 price tag! 
I also loved this sweet little mistletoe on Ohdeedoh. I decided to attempt one for myself. It was kinda time consuming but I loved how it turned out. 

I love love love boxwood. This wreath found on etsy looks really cute on my backdoor. 

I also saw these cute scalloped garlands on Pintrest and I decided to give it a try. They were really easy to make. I just bought some glitter foam sheets and cut out the scallops then sewed them together. 
This adorable paper wreath is also from Etsy
The little cottage print is from Sarah Jane Studios
The santa is from Russia. I lived there for 5 months and bought it then. 
The terrarium is from Etsy as well. 
And who can forget my little penguin friends from Wish Daisy
I bought these christmas lights last year after Christmas. I though they would look great in a little bowl. 
I wanted to dress up my bathroom a little bit so I bought this DIY paper garland from Paper Source
Every year I put out a little tree with ornaments that I bought in Russia. It’s really colorful and I love it. 
Behold my gingerbread house! I made one this year with my mom and sisters and it took us FOREVER. But it was really fun and I hope it becomes a tradition. 
The Poinsettia pillow cover is from Etsy
This little reindeer pillows is really sweet. It’s from here
This year I decided it was finally time to get stockings. I decided to keep them all white. So they will all be different but each will be white. This way I don’t have to buy a bunch of matching ones as new kids come along but they will all look good together. Jett’s is from West Elm. 
The Happy Holidays banner is from here
Another craft I decided to attempt was this holly garland from Me oh My. It took a really long time to cut out all those leaves! But I think it was worth it. 
This little wreath is on my mirror and is from here
Some more scalloped garlands hang behind my t.v. 
I hope you enjoyed a little tour of my Holiday Decor this year. It was really great to change things up and add some new things. Now that it is all decorated I can sit back and sip some hot chocolate and listen to some Christmas music!
