Holiday Home(ish) Tour

There are only 17 days until Christmas. 17! I’ve been in the holiday spirit for a couple months, since we started The Home Depot Holiday Challenge (back in October!).  We moved shortly after, which means we had to take down and box up our holiday decor before we were ready.  We’re still settling in to our current spot, not 100% unpacking since the plan is to move to our next spot in a few months before I pop out an infant.  With that said, we haven’t totally decked the halls quite yet, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been working on holiday decor!

The last couple weeks I’ve been sewing, gluing and glittering like mad preparing for a pop-up shop I participated in this weekend.  I’d like to say I definitely turned my booth into a mini living room full of Christmas cheer.

I decked out two mini flocked trees in German glass glitter ornaments.  Flocked trees and glitter ornaments are a must have for the holidays if you ask me.   It’s so easy to turn a plain glass ornament into something special.  Here and here are two easy tutorials that I posted the last two seasons. Customize your ornaments has never been so easy!

Every year I like to make one big Christmas craft.  This year I decided to make some fab stockings from remnant pieces of fabric from my (absurdly large) fabric stash.  It’s a fun way to add some whimsy to your fireplace or mantel.  And of course! I’ll be sharing a tutorial soon 🙂

Fresh greenery in the form of garland and wreaths are also a must for holiday decor.  For the pop-up shop I shared a booth with my girlfriend who is quite the talented florist. She hand made these gorgeous wreaths! Crazy, right? I totally soaked up their beauty in my holiday space all weekend.

My husband and I are absolutely ready for the holidays, however this year we’re just spreading the cheer in different ways than we’re used to, which includes this darling little booth.
