Happy Wednesday! We’re now deep into December and I thought today would be the perfect time to share out little holiday home tour! This year, I really wanted to go with a bright, colorful Christmas theme. Lots of handmade elements and cozy textures. So, here we go! No mantle here, so our stocking are hung on the bookcase with care. I used little chalkboard tags to add our initials. Honestly, it’s just Josh and me, so we have never actually used stockings for holding gifts, but I love hanging them up. It just screams “holidays!” I picked up these cute little green elves from the Crate & Barrel outlet on sale last year. Paired with bright, bold colored candles they look super festive. They just sit on our bookcase and hug our candles! Cute, right?
Also on our bookcase, I’ve got our DIY Cheeky Gold Foil Art and a cute little modern reindeer that I snagged on sale at Target last year.
For our tree this year, I wanted to have a “we threw everything on here” sort of vibe. Sometimes, themes that are super coordinated don’t feel as cozy to me. Do you thing so too? From all the gorgeous Christmas inspiration floating around this fall, I wanted to embrace that traditional, mis-matched aesthetic.
I added more handmade touches with these simple DIY Yarn Tassel Ornaments.
My favorite way to fill in empty spaces on artificial trees is to use flowers. These white flowers pack a big graphic punch and bring a little whimsy to the tree.
To add more color, I made these simple DIY Painted ornaments as an updated version of the traditional ball ornament. I really wanted to change up out tree skirt this year. For the past few we had this white and burlap ruffle thing going on, but this year I really wanted to ditch the neutral. I found this blue velvet fabric at a craft supply reuse store and just sort of swaddled it around the base of our tree. Just $2.00 and no effort for a totally different look.
I bought this wire wreath from CB2 on black Friday and thought it’d be perfect to display holiday cards as they come in. It was way way bigger than I expected, but I’m so in love with it! It’s a perfect blank slate that can be used for any occasion.
