Here are some of the decorations I’ve been making for our first little Christmas at home together. Anything that wasn’t purchased in raw material form from a craft store was thrifted and then repurposed. For example, my “O Holy Night” canvas was first painted with a strange wine bottle still life, over which I promptly sprayed a few layers of gold paint. A little gold paint fixes everything, in my opinion.
a simple wooden bead + string garland for our tree
felt mistletoe for extra kissing valu
my wreath for all seasons, with wintertime swag
my “mantle” complete with a very subtle JOYEAUX NOEL garland
repurposed canvas with one of my favorite Christmas hymns
the little lord Jesus
and this little garland, just for fun

How are you decorating for Christmas around your house this year? Are you making or buying or both?
Let me know, I’m always curious!
