I made the “Merry Christmas” signs last year using some stained 1×4’s and a paint marker. You can see a little peek of how they were dressed up last year here. (I know I need curtains, they’re on my list for this year, but finding or making 12 ft. curtains is EXPENSIVE!!)
And now, my very favorite part of my Christmas. This little gallery wall. This was one of the first things to go up, and it sort of came about from me just setting a bunch of my bottle brush trees aside while I decided where to put them. Then, they just ended up working right were they were. The big wood “picture ledge” is actually a piece from the underside of the top of a dresser (that probably makes no sense–I’ll explain another time). I reused some of my embroidery hoops from Halloween, and added some crocheted snowflakes I found in my mom’s old Christmas stuff. And yes, I’m like that rockstar that wears my own t-shirt: My prints are EVERYWHERE, but it’s honestly because I have so freaking many of them floating around, so why not put them to use, right?
