Wanted to share a few of the DIY and thrift store Christmas projects I’ve made/arranged aroundΒ the house.
Two years ago I made this pinecone wreath by hot-gluing a bunch of mini spruce pinecones to a styrofoam wreath form and hung it to the wall from a wired plaid ribbonΒ that I picked up at Michael’s.
Also loving this adorned pair of skis I picked up from an antique shop a few years back.
I picked up these trimmings from the ground of the Whole Foods Christmas tree parking lot to make my own evergreen bouquet in the kitchen. We didn’t get a tree this year (I know, so sad) because we will be traveling for much of the holidays, so this was a great way to get that fresh Christmas tree smell in our house (for free!).On the table, I’ve been using this as my nightly centerpiece. I took Pottery Barn pillar candlesΒ (such good quality!), wrapped them with burlap ribbon and hot glued the edges together. I placed them on a slice of tree trunk, added more fresh greenery, and a pair of fallen antlers that I picked up from an antique shop in Wisconsin. They look so pretty all aglow at night.
InΒ the living room I put up my DIY gallery wall.
Outside the house I added a Target wreath (not a DIY project!),
wrapped the railings with pinecone garland that I picked up at a garage sale for $3 a pop,
and filled the topiary planter with glittery pinecones and faux greenery also from antique and thrift shops.There are lots of other little momentsΒ around the house but I can’t seem to take good enough pictures of them. Someone PLEASEΒ teach me how to use a DSLR camera.
