First, I used my amazing $3 cutting board again to make a nature-y glittery centerpiece. With a grapevine tree (Hobby Lobby, 50% off) and some other decorations I had, I mixed gold and black and bronze. Oh, you didn't know that the Gold Glitter Reindeer's natural habitat was a cutting board? Now you do.
The gold and red is intense. I get it. But what other time than Christmas can you pull something like this off??
My mantle is sporting silver. All leftovers, with a few things spraypainted silver (I LOVE the silver spraypaint, if you hadn't noticed..)
My newest project this year was my front porch tree. Apparently I have a strong pull to take the inside outside when decorating. I showed you my giant hanging ornaments last year, but this year I added to it with a tree. It's just a simple Walmart fake tree (gift from Tony's parents!) that I ziptied to a piece of plywood to keep it from flying away. Some plastic Ikea red and silver ornaments top it off.
I love my outside tree.
Here is the Santa Art that is gracing my wall:
And the festive gold tinsel tomato cage tree I made last year:
And of course, the $5 silver wreath I made last week decorating the front door.
That's how I've decked my halls this year! With a few homemade touches and a bunch of preexisting treasures, our house is comfy and cozy, and we will snuggle up together like two birds of a feather on this cold Georiga night!
I'm linking up to Kim's party this week, because I want to keep playing each week, and I kinda sorta made some stuff!
