Today I am sharing what I have been working on around the house in terms of Christmas Décor!
This is my first time going all out with Christmas décor since I have my own house and don’t plan to move anytime soon.
I am starting to slowly grow my Christmas décor over time, and plan to save money by shopping clearance after Christmas.
So this year I want to focus on the big, important pieces and will buy some other things when they go on sale.
Before I started planning, I wanted to narrow down my overall theme.
I love blue and white themed Christmas décor, as well as pastel.
But ultimately I wanted something classic, with a little bit of a personal twist.
So I landed on the classic red and green, with touches of navy and gold.
The tree is of course the most important décor item.
While I did not have many decorations last year, we did still have a tree.
It was simple, but I really liked it so I did the same this year but added some red bows for a little extra something.
Of course another décor staple is the Christmas stocking.
I wanted something specific and also personal, so I decided to make my own.
Last week I shared the tutorial of how I did it in this post.
As I said above, I wanted to have a color palette of red, green, and navy.
I searched all over the internet for a fabric I liked, and ultimately went with a classic tartan pattern with some navy in it.
I really loved the look of a scalloped top, so I incorporated that into my design as well.
I have two fireplaces in the house and was excited to decorate them.
Of course the living room was the main focus.
I got this garland from Joann (also mentioned in this post)
I found battery operated string lights at the 99 Cent Store for about $3.50 and added blue velvet ribbon bows, also from Joann.
Front Door Wreath
I decided to get a plain wreath so I could decorate it myself.
I added a monogrammed sash I made out of scraps from the pillows, as well as some battery operated lights.
I am definitely not done decorating this one, I am thinking I might add some pinecones or other accessories.
Mini Chair Wreaths
After the stockings, this project is what I was most excited for.
I have 12 dining room chairs, so I wanted each wreath to be as cheap as possible.
After lots of searching I found these from Christmas Central, which were $3.19 a piece.
I used the red velvet ribbon from Joann to make the loop for the wreath, then tied bows and glued them on top.
I also added little gold glitter pinecones I found at Joann.
Then I was able to use safety pins to attach the ribbon to the backs of my upholstered chairs, easy!
I love that our couch is white because it makes it super easy to change out the pillows.
Monogrammed Tea Towel
Of course I like adding small details around the home as well.
And when I found this tea towel at Dollar Tree I had to get it and spice it up with our monogram!
