From my last blog post, we have established that I love Christmas decorations.
I love DIY holiday decor, but I also love a good sale. So I wait to buy my holiday decor until the week after Christmas. My first stop is always Target, where decorations are marked +75% off. Yes, most of the really pretty ornaments are usually gone by Christmas, but you would be surprised by all the goodies marked down to clearance! After Target, I run to Michael's, Shopko, and pretty much anywhere else having a sale.
And with that, here is the process of how I decorated my petite tree this year:
At Michael's, they mark a bunch of their custom floral department ribbon way down after Christmas. I bought a 50 yard spool of ribbon for only $6.99.
Tree topper I knabbed at Target for less than $2. One of the gems is missing, but I'll just camouflage that with a little puffy paint.
My favorite gifts to receive are actually Christmas ornaments. I love hanging them up every year and having moments of nostalgia. This one if my favorite.
This one is an ornament I made while I was in college. I painted the outside of a glass ornament and filled it with fake snow.
