Well, what-da-ya know, I'm late. Story of my life this week. But I *finally* have it done and I'm SO EXCITED!
Ever since I dreamed (yes, I really dreamed it) of red and white holiday decor I knew I had to do it! So here she is, all dressed up for Santa.
Isn't she cute!?! I love, love, love it!
Here are a few more pictures, just for fun :)
So glittery. I made the cones out of styrofoam from Michaels. I smeared them with glue and carefully poured glitter over them. It took a couple days for the red/white one because I had to do it in layers. I wish I took pictures of it, but I was in a hurry to get it done. I know, bad blogger.
The banner I made with my Cricut cutter. Looove.
See those branches in the photo below? I spent the afternoon wrangling branches from a tree in our backyard. Do you know how hard it is to break up branches and keep the dog from chewing them up? Hard. She's a fast little girl!
Once I got them together, I spray painted them white, then sprayed them with Santa Snow.
I like them on the mantle, and they definatley balance the decor, but I think they need something. Maybe small ornaments? Some small candy canes? I'd love to know what y'all think.
And just so you know, I do have the mantle done, but the rest of my house is a wreck! The fall decor is still sitting here:
It appears a tornado hit the coffee table. I will say, I'm loving re-reading the Chronicles of Narnia. Perfect Christmas books.
And My kitchen table looks like this:
But the mantle's done!
Hopefully we can keep the holiday decorations going and get the tree up soon :)
How fun that you dreamed your theme :)I love classic red and white. So sweet!ReplyDelete

So gorgeous! I wish my mantle was done. We're going to get out the eleventy-million boxes of Christmas crap (this is my Hubby's label) this weekend. You could put some tiny round red ornaments on the beautiful branches just to give it a little more color. Love what you did!!!ReplyDelete
I love it! Very cute, I agree that small red ornaments would add a lovely pop of color on the branches. Maybe you could make some glittery too.ReplyDelete
