DIY Christmas

Lifestyle December 25, 2015

  

Better late than never!  Of course I wanted to post this days ago but life just kept happening and I mindfully went with her.  But seriously Christmas is my FAVORITE holiday. The smells, colors, family, food, decorations, and the CRAFTS!  Christmas crafts are on a whole other level. Definitely the holy grail. Well, I did a good deal of crafting this year and I’ll kinda walk you through some…

Any good DIY project worth its salt involves repurposing some old once useful object into a new more meaningful one. For my DIY Christmas I repurposed some old lightbulbs into Christmas tree ornaments. 

  My photog fiancé is the king of lighting…I mean his first word was literally light. So I figured this would be a great addition to our holiday decor. It’s easy,  I wrapped some twine around the bulb and hung them up. Bang! 
    
Our colors were black and white so I played it up with some black ribbon, glitter and satin, (class you), some black ornaments, and white flowers. If you noticed my tree stand is an upside down ikea end table. The crafting way, repurpose, reuse, recycle. Got it from Oh Joy‘s yard sale. I made some 3D stars for my walls and to top my adorable little tree. I found a tutorial here.  

 

We get a new camera/photography related ornament every year. We only have two to show for ourselves but I’m pretty sure we have time to grow our collection. 

   

Next, I cut out about one million Christmas trees. There were so many. I stuck them on everything. You may even remember them from a previous post of mine. Hmmm I wonder who will find the post first?  

 

This is the view into our cute little kitchen. Wish I was organized enough to take pictures of everything. Sometimes the holidays just get away from you.
