My favorite thing to decorate for Christmas has to be the tree. Kevin and I are both huge fans of having a real tree, and this year I went for a more rustic theme using things like burlap, small chalkboards, rusty sleigh bells and metal tags.
I don't know about you, but it's feeling pretty festive up in here.
I found some super cute wood deer figurines at Michael's and placed some silver ornaments inside a cloche that I also bought there earlier this year.
I'm a huge fan of Lucy at Ms. Craftberry Bush's printables. She makes the most beautiful watercolor designs - definitely check out her work if you haven't already!
This pillow was one of my first purchases from Decor Steals. They have some of the best rustic and vintage-looking pieces.
Our mantel got a big 'winter wonderland' makeover as well.
I also updated our chalkboard to something that fit the season....
....and decked out the area above our kitchen cabinets with lots of Target hot spot finds.
I also made sure to give the outside of our house a little holiday lovin'. I hung this wreath from HomeGoods on our front door. I love the mix of burlap, pinecones, and rusty tin stars!
Next to the front door sits our antique window flower box which I filled with scraps from our Christmas tree. To add some interest I stuck in some red berry branches from Hobby Lobby and a lantern from Kohl's.
Last but not least, we can't forget our Grinch lawn ornament. Kevin and I made him last year and he's one of my favorite DIY projects to date. He's definitely a show-stopper and one of the most fun Christmas decorations on our block. (if you'd like to see how we made our Grinch, check out this post.)
I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday season with your friends and families.
Merry Christmas, and thanks for reading!
