It is amazing how fast the seasons change; one day you look up and realize you are your parents' age. I cannot believe it is almost Christmas! The first week December for me signifies that it is time to take down the festive Fall faire, and time for rockin' around the Christmas tree!
I am a gal who adores Christmas traditions, so for the outside of my house, I wanted the décor to emulate that feel. First, I placed these festive swags on my door.
Next, I placed this adorable lamppost box right in the planter just outside my door.
Being that recently I changed the color scheme inside of my house to cool blues, silver, and grey, I wanted the décor inside of my home to reflect the same theme.
The first thing I decided to do is adorn each of the bedroom doors in my house with a festive wreath. First, I measured the door and placed a small mark with a thumbtack right in the middle of the door.
I used the mark as a guide and placed these simple hangers made by command. What I like most about these is the ease of removal.
Next, I decorated my bookshelf. I draped a simple garland around the pole and down both sides;
On to the fun part!! Trimming the ole Christmas tree. First, I decided where I wanted set up the tree. This corner in my entryway looked friendly.
After the lights were strung, I threaded light blue tulle fabric throughout the tree. I like to use tulle in lieu of a traditional garland, because I feel it is a better way to showcase the color palette.
Next, I placed the largest bulbs in sporadic places. Shown here.
Finally, I placed my hand-built tree topper. If you would like to view the tutorial for this topper, you may see the post on my other blog, The Crafting Table, by clicking here.
