I get so excited to see all the beautiful lights, spend time with family and friends, eat lots of delicious food and of course decorate our home.
I am typically one for the traditional. I love the greens and reds and bright white lights that represent my favorite time of year. This year though I have found something new to love. In case you missed my post about Shutterfly Holiday Cards I am now in LOVE with the blues, whites, silvers and reds of Christmas and if you were wondering....this...the Brillant Blue (Bright and Merry) is the card we went with.
But since we are on a budget...buying lots of new decorations just does not work. That's right....I'm behaving and sticking to our holiday budget.
So I decided to create this....The Twelve Days of Christmas...and I think it turned out beautiful!
Here she is displayed in our hall...
A little blue, a little red and lots of white and silver! Swoon!
Oh you love our glitter trees? With a foam cone, glue and glitter you could have some of your very own...oh and of course a candle stick as the stand! And since I still had to stick with that ummm budget...I used one of our Pilsner glasses to hold the ornaments (left over from my ornament wreath) for a little touch of red delight!
And this beauty? I learned how to make her on some amazing blog...unfortunately I somehow did not save said blog (please let me know if it was yours!) But I know they got the idea from Design Sponge...Ruffly Felt Wreath Tutorial!
This little pretty? As you can see she isn't totally finished yet but her silver glory hangs from the mirror above our table display. I learned how to create her over at Joy is at Home!
And because I love you so very much I decided to share the love so that you can enjoy these gorgeous colors in your home this holiday season!
Simply click HERE, save to your computer, then print out at your favorite photo place and put it in your favorite frame! And there you go....Beautiful, FREE, Holiday art!
'Tis the Season!
No flippin way!!! The Real Life Mom was featured for the Twelve Days Printable!!!!
Check it out!
On a side note....the wreath and felt tree do take quite a bit of time. Both very easy but time consuming....hence why I have yet to finish the wreath! But I do love both of them and the time spent creating was well worth it! And a special thanks to my husband for providing the awesome lighting for a little photo shoot...he thought he deserved some credit!
