christmas is in just four days, and i'm not even close to being ready. my tree was set up, without lights, for a full week. then i added the lights and garland, and it sat for another week. then i added half the ornaments, and it sat for another week. and just a few days ago, i finally added the other half of the ornaments. the only other spots i usually decorate in the house, are the mantle above the fireplace, and the entry table by the front door. those are both decorated nicely, with lighted greenery and christmas decor and accents. and yet yesterday, one of the daycare girlies asked me "why didn't you decorate for christmas?". lol! oh, and btw, i haven't wrapped a single gift yet, so there are NO presents under the tree yet.
this year, it just seems that we haven't had time for so many of the things that i wish we could do. work, school, soccer, band concerts. it's just been really busy and hectic. since i haven't done a single crafty things in ages, i figure i would use my love for pinterest to show you some of the things i have "pinned" on my boards, that i would like to make. if i had time.
love the pom pom garland. i have a basket of yarn covered styrofoam balls in my family room already, in these same colors, that i keep out year round. need to make one of these for my mantle. info and tutorial HERE.
and i have to have the pom pom ornaments to match. into and tutorial HERE.
these star ornaments are perfectly simple. love them. info and tutorial HERE.
i love this tree skirt! would match my home decor so much better than the tree skirt i've been using for the last 8 years. info and tutorial HERE.
these stockings would match the tree skirt perfectly. from etsy, but no links, and could be easily made. i think.
i have a thing for covered styrofoam trees. love these, but i'd choose a different color to match my decor. instructions HERE.
super cute felt trees. love these. info and tutorial HERE.
love this paper tree too. so simple, and love the sheet music paper. info and tutorial HERE.
these tissue paper covered trees are adorable and fluffy! i'd do different colors, to match my decor. info and tutorial HERE.
if i had a big chalkboard wall, i would love to do this for a unique advent calendar. love the simple brown bags. info found HERE.
i kind of wish my mantle looked like this. love the painted pallet, and the rustic stockings. info found HERE.
maybe after christmas, i'll make an effort to start planning for NEXT christmas, and actually try some of these projects ;)
