That is the theme for our Christmas decor this year. Cute, crafty and candy coloured.. or as Laine would call it.. 'funky' hee heee! I had dreams of going all matchy matchy like these Amy Butler photos that have circled the net, and are absolutely gorgeous! But.. I have waaay too many bright and fun ornaments from years and years of our ornament tradition.. and I cherish them waaay too much to not include them. Previously, I did the traditional red, green and white.. but this year, I wanted to make it totally funky and bright! Pinks, turquoise, lime, yellow.. all of it! lol
It started with these wreaths. I took them apart (they had berries, pine cones and a red bow on them before.. very traditional).. then last Saturday, Laine and I worked on these pom poms.. and this is what we ended up with! Love how they turned out!
This next one is on the side entrance door.. the door we use, and it is snowing and soooo windy out right now.. so the cute little pom poms are getting a taste of winter! lol
Yesterday I got in over my head with Christmas crafting and decorating. The house was a disaster (photos to come! lol) and there was stuff EVERYWHERE. I had picked up this little wreath form to do a yarn wrapped wreath, so in my crafting craze, I did that yesterday morning. I found the cute white accents last night (at Canadian Tire believe it or not lol) and knew they were perfect! How cute is that deer!?
I hung it from the curtain rod in our living room. I have now officially used up all of my black and white gingham fabric too! Best $10 ever spent! lol I made a ruffle garland for the tree with it as well (although it kinda got lost in there! lol).. speaking of garland.. I made some 'finger knitted' garland that took me FOREVER the other night.. but it ended up looking silly, so I am going to have to figure something else crafty to do with it! lol
These little guys were from last year.. that white flocked one makes SUCH A MESS... but is ohhhh so cute! They got a wee bit of a makeover this year (as did the star with some pink glitter.. and the trees on the pail used to be green... like I said, it was crafting chaos in here yesterday! lol).. a pink tree would be a welcome addition to the duo... maybe when they go dirt cheap! ;)
My little white tree was really really dreaming of having a giant sized (compared to it anyway) white companion.. but I can't really justify going and buying a white Christmas tree quite yet.. again, maybe if it goes dirt cheap. heee! I did spot one last night that would be ohhhhh so lovely though! SO, to fulfill little white trees wishes (and maybe a wee bit of mine).. I picked up this white garland for the railing at Jysk... it will do just fine I think! ;)
It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas! heeee! I am sooo in the Christmas spirit now! Next up.. some more colourful button trees!! I just need some more pins first! lol! I am sooo enjoying crafting Christmas decor this year! So fulfilling! :)
