Christmas Decorations 2012

Merry Christmas and welcome to our home! Below are a few of our decorating projects for 2012!

Outside decor...

Using magnolia leaves and berries in the window boxes is an easy and inexpensive way to add fullness and holiday interest to the outside of the home.

Front door....come on in!

Christmas Mantel
Christmas tree with cotton accents and burlap ribbon

Cotton-Topper....using 'picked' cotton stalk stick-ins for interest. They have a starry look about them!

Another look at the cotton-topper! The cotton is recycled from a fall display.

Dollar-Tree ornaments and ribbon make an inexpensive wreath for my white shutter in the kitchen.

Our 16x20 Seasonal Chalkboard in the Kitchen. May Your Days Be Merry and Bright! We love our chalk-ink markers to change the board with each holiday! Simple greenery and red/white ornaments add a nice festive touch above.

Another chalk-ink project....template cut out from the back of a cereal box, painted with chalkboard paint, and decorated with chalk-ink pens.

Poinsettia in Santa's boots planter! A touch of whimsy is always good!

Merry Christmas to one and all!
