I tucked away the picture frame that normally hangs here and swapped it for a big beautiful wreath. I made it with a wreath form ($8) and ribbon ($3) from Michaels, along with some plastic gold balls that I picked up at the dollar store ($2). Not too shabby for only $13!
I used some of the extra ribbon to tie some bows on the Candle Holders I made this Fall. I also gave my beloved Maltese Falcon his own little Santa hat.
Canadian Tire (On sale, $70). Its an indoor/outdoor Fraser Fir with prestrung lights and cute pinecones glued onto it, so I figured that I can use it again in the future for an outdoor decoration when I get a house.
I'll be posting the tutorial on how to make these cute little guys next week!
While digging through my big box of Christmas stuff, I happened to find this star made out of twigs. It was easy to convert it to a tree topper, but removing the ribbon loop and then using florist wire to tie it to the top branch.
Oh how I love the smell of beeswax!
For the little pillow, I used an old white knit sweater that I was destined for the landfill. With the larger pillows, I found a wool lining at the fabric store that reminded me of faux fur, but at HALF the cost!
Have you got any decorations up yet?
