Did you all check out the awesome ideas at Kim’s DIY Blog Party? I got some ideas for sure and also realized how retarded I am for not realizing that painting foam forms before covering them with stuff was the smart thing to do. I have 2 more foam forms that I plan on using this holiday season and now they’re due for a coat of paint before I start hot gluing.
So next week at the blog party is all about Christmas decorations, so I’m going to keep those from you until Monday. But I wanted to recap what we did last year for our Christmas decorations.
The outside of our house:
(This is largely the same this year with a small handful of additions. Also, I got a timer for the outside lights so they’ll automagically turn on and off. No more stepping outside at 10:30 in my PJs to unplug everything. Score!)
Our tree, complete with cat:
We still need a stocking for Savannah, but Target only has lame little stockings this year. I might end up getting a plain red stocking from Michael’s.
I think I need to move some of decorations around into some of the other rooms in the house so they can get a good dose of holiday cheer. I kinda hate to move stuff into rooms we hardly use, so I might just move stuff right before our party on the 19th.
What can I say, I like to keep the decorations where I can see them the most– in the family room!
