Up until now, our Christmas decorations have been a smorgasbord of items from college and newlywed days, hand-me-downs and handmade gifts. There wasn't anything that was necessarily tacky about any of it, but I've never had the opportunity to create my own cohesive collection.
I've been feeling a little better during daytime hours the last few weeks, so I jumped at the chance to pick out new colors and themes and dive into a project with my newfound energy.
Instead of shopping over Thanksgiving weekend, I had a party with my 14 rolls of burlap. I still don't have any Christmas shopping checked off my list, but I have new ruffly stockings, a tree skirt, and wreath to show for my time.
And I'm pretty excited about it.
As a side note, I bought the pin with the first letter of the name I want to use for baby as well, just in case. That $3 investment definitely secures my pick, right? Troy and I can never agree on names.
Maybe if I get really ambitious I'll even put together a burlap ruffle tutorial.
Update: tutorial here.
