Christmas Home Tour 2015

Since I started blogging this summer, this is my first official holiday home tour! I tried to keep it simple this year, because I have a two-and-a-half-year-old who has a tendency to take down Christmas decorations and put them in the toilet….I wish I was joking.  So I only decorated my living room and dining room and tried to keep a fairly neutral, gold, silver, green color palate with some burlap and other natural elements.

The only DIY project I completed was embroidering these burlap stockings I purchased from Joanne fabrics for around $9 each.  I used some white embroidery floss and just embroidered the first initial of each family member on the stockings.

We cut down our Christmas tree at a local tree farm and when we brought it home, it had the most wonderful citrus aroma.  I really love the smell of a freshly cut Christmas tree!

Here is our Christmas Card this year. I spray painted wood letters I got from Michael’s to spell out “JOY,” in gold spray paint and then I repurposed them as decoration on my mantle. 

I skipped paying a professional photographer and just took my own photographs with my iPhone. If you want some tips on how to create a great Christmas card without breaking the bank check out this post.
