Happy Holidays everyone! Are you all as ready for 2020 to end as I am? Even though I can’t hear your responses I am sure there will be a lot of YESES! I have decided to try to enjoy December despite this awful year. I shall ride out the rest of it on a wave of fairy lights and glitter! Turning the house into a winter wonderland has helped! Let me show you a few of my favorite things the Christmas edition!
This is my Disney tree that I’ve collected ornaments for for over twenty years. Disneyland and Disney World are two of my favorite places on the planet! These ornaments represent countless trips to the parks over the years and bring back so many fun memories.
Nutcrackers are another fav of mine! The more shiny, the more sequins the more obnoxious the better!
Fairy lights, nutcrackers, and a wreath that I DIYed adorn the mantle. I also love the little ceramic angels with the letters NOEL. They belonged to a dear family friend who passed away years ago and it always is in a special place in my Christmas decor now.
Fun fact…my middle name is Joy so I always collect them at Christmastime like the sign above.
Our foyer is so many of my favorite things! Dinosaurs, pompoms, disco balls and bottlebrush trees may not make sense to everyone but to me they make a perfect combination!
This little retro television craft I created after seeing similar projects from the Crafty Lumberjacks (if you haven’t seem them they are AWESOME) as well as Anthropologie. I loved it so much that I had to take Poppy’s Christmas photos with it and find a spot to integrate it into the rest of the decorations! Plus I can transform it and use it for a photography prop for my side business Bee Memorable Photography!
This was seriously the easiest DIY and I absolutely adore the way it turned out. I just took a cardboard box and cut the hole out of the front. The panel on the right side is foam paper from the Dollar Tree and the buttons are water bottle lids I painted black and hot glued on. The antennas are skewer sticks with foam balls that I painted with Mod Podge and silver glitter.
For Halloween I had purchased a black tree this year and had it decorated in the foyer with a candy corn theme. For Christmas however it has been turned into a Nightmare Before Christmas tree! I found the cutest Jack Skellington at Walmart in the Christmas section and a Zero plastic piggy bank that looks perfect beneath the tree!
I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and let’s hope that 2021 is the exact opposite of 2020. Here is to good health, amazing career opportunities and fun times with friends and family! Until next time you all stay safe!
