TIS’ THE SEASON
Happy Black (and gold) Friday, friends. Today I’m sharing my entry way all decked out for the season in my favorite color combo.
Are any of you braving the crowds and shopping today? It’s not really my thing. I’ve done it before, and it pretty much sends me into panic attack mode. If I could ever master the art of shopping online, I’d never shop in stores again. For real.
My “crazy Christmas lady” comes out in the fact that I decorate at least a week before Thanksgiving. (I’m sure I have some fellow “Christmas crazies” who probably beat me.)
I’ve been in Christmas mode for a while, but somehow the day after Thanksgiving makes it socially acceptable to flaunt it like Buddy the Elf high on syrup. Prior to that you open yourself up to judgement and eye rolls from those who feel badly for Thanksgiving. (C’mon, like it really has feelings?)
CONSOLE TABLE DECOR
It started with my black and gold lamp (from Target) that has a permanent spot there. I added the “O Night Divine” canvas from Lindsay Letters as the focal point, and layered the gold himmeli wreath I made last year on top. The little silver bottle brush tree was a gift, and I found the larger one at Hobby Lobby. The white village is a DIY that I created for Glitter Guide. (More details soon!)
Some of my favorite projects start at the dollar store. I love changing up every year, so I never spend much on new decorations.
You’d be surprised what you can find for just a few bucks from dollar store that make great DIY supplies or filler decor. (Remember my Christmas plaques? Still one my fav DIY’s ever.) I bought 12 glitter star ornaments at $1 a piece and glued them together before I hung them from the ceiling.
I love this little scene in our entryway, and the twinkle stars make a nice visual when Gemma and I sing “Twinkle, Twinkle”…which is no less than 100 times a day.
I’ll be back next week with a fun DIY for a wreath alternative. Thanks for spending a bit of your time here today…I’m thankful for you:)
