Christmas Decor Inspiration

November 8, 2016

Blame it on the video of dinosaurs destroying really early Christmas decor... but it's put me in the decor dreaming mood.

Now it's going to be a few years before I've collectd my heart out and am ready to do a home tour, but I thought today I'd just share the direction I'm moving.

Basically rustic tartan and burlap.

Now to keep Harrison off of my actual tree I'd like to make a felt one for the wall.

I'd also like to make more garland for above cabinets, my last batch was lost in the last 3 moves. 

And felt trees for the mantle. 

I'd also like to make another pinecone Christmas tree, since the one in this photo melted in the hot Louisiana attic heat. Major sad face people, big time. 

Now for the red glass balls you see on the tree above... I'd like to get some and do this to them. 

I also plan on making a ton of these. 

I think that about covers everything I've pinned on Pinterest in the last 5 years. The other item on my Christmas list is to have a small Christmas dinner just the three of us before Christmas, well before the week before Christmas. Jeremy is having his second ear surgery right before Christmas while his seminary classes are out for the holiday and he is going to be miserable on the actual day... so a English Christmas before hand is in order. 

My plan is to make a few traditional English dishes and celebrate early while he is feeling good and while he doesn't have that big dome attached to the side of his head. Poor hubby.
