Christmas Pretties at My Home

by Jesse on November 29, 2011

I tried my best to wait until after Thanksgiving, but the tree actually came out several days before. We did hold off on decorating it until the day before Thanksgiving! I am always just as excited as the kids! Out come the Christmas music and giggles.

I LOVE having a white tree!! Not sure that I will ever go back to a regular tree. It is just so sparkly!!

*********************

The next photo is of our dining table. Do you remember these trees from last year?

Here is the tutorial.

I thought a little NOEL banner would set off my glitter trees in the entry way.

(paper doilies, glitter and glue)

Have I mentioned how much I love this little helper?!

One of my very favorite things this year are my Christmas labels!! Instead of looking for their names on their packages this year…

They look for their photo!

This project is super simple! While I made these in photoshop, you could easily print out a 5×7 photo of your child and use a craft punch to cut each photo out. Then using a whole punch run your ribbon through and attach to your package. =)

Fun huh?!

So tell me, are you all decorated for Christmas?

Blue and White, my new fav too! I agree about the white tree…I just love ours! I suppose I waited for too many years to change my deocrating as the girls really miss the traditional red/green/assorted ornatments we have used for so many years. Did you make those adorable trees in your entry? If so, what did you use as the cone base? Might just have to copy them ๐Ÿ˜‰ since we do live so far apart these days. Thanks for sharing the pics…your home turned out beautiful!!!

Kim, I didn’t make the glitter trees. Gordman’s had them for such a deal it was just more convenient to buy them. =)

So pretty! We have a tree up but no decorations or lights yet! I’ll be making a trip to the good ol’ Hobby Lobby and Target tomorrow to help fill up the tree!

Your house looks so pretty! I am kind of tree crazy so I have 2 finished and one to just hang the vintage balls on. Other than that I have nothing done!

Can you come and decorate my house for Christmas please?? I am just not into it this year for some reason? I all the sudden hate all the decorations I’ve used in years past and want to start over. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for the awesome inspiration!

So you’re the one who owns that lovely white tree I keep seeing on Pinterest! It’s just beautiful! Somehow I can’t see my family converting, but who knows. Never say never. And no, we haven’t decorated much at all. I’m not really feeling Christmas quite yet.

How do you make the ornament garland on your white tree?

I just happened to luck up and run across your blog. Absolutely love your Christmas tree! The colors are gorgeous together… I have a question if you don’t mind. How did you make the “garland”
of Christmas balls. I’ve never seen that done before; it is something else!! I know you must have made them because of all the other neat ideas you have. SO talented… Sorry, that just brought up another question. HOW ON EARTH DO YOU STORE THE BALL GARLAND to keep it safe from breaking?!!

I REALLY look forward to keeping up with all the fun ideas you come up with. Never kept up with a blog before BUT I can’t think of a better one to try. Thank you for getting me motivated and doing crafts I have been wanting to get back into!!!

Thank you so much for your sweet comment! I would love to take credit for the garland, but I can’t. I purchased it at Target a couple of years ago. They are all plastic balls. Some have glitter and some are shiny all attached with some sort of wire to a long flexible cord of sorts. I think you really could do this yourself. I wish now I would have bought more packages of it just incase something broke, since they haven’t carried it in a year or so now.

Hope that helps you some. =)

Have a great day!
