Christmas is just around the corner. Seriously, we've only got twenty-three days left until the sleigh bells start ringing. Its kind of hard to believe that Christmas is so close and I have yet to finish anything Christmas related! I plan on making all of my Christmas gifts in the next week or so. I'll be sharing all of my DIY gift ideas over the next few weeks with you guys.
Five Ways to Decorate Your Home for Christmas
Do you decorate your house for Christmas? Over the past few years, I have not decorated my house, but with a new baby in the house I feel like I am obligated to make his first Christmas the best it can be. Here are some tips that I have incorporated to share the holiday spirit in my house.
Decorate Your Tree
Over the past few years I have put up a tree, but I never really put much thought into it. This year is different. I am making a number of tree ornaments that go along with my tree theme. Next week, I will share my tree theme with you guys (hint: its a book and a movie!). There are several ways that you can decorate your tree: themes, colors, or just do whatever you want. Decorating the tree was my favorite holiday tradition and I hope that Zander loves it just as much as I do.
Hang the Stockings with Care
I don't actually have a mantle to hang our stockings on, but I do have a cute window that will work perfectly. I'm not sure what I'm going to fill a newborn's stocking with but at least he has one and that is what really counts!
Nutcrackers remind me of the great holiday play The Nutcracker- three guesses why. I have always, always, always loved nutcrackers. I even have a small collection that I have been hoarding for years and years.
I've never been one for snow globes. I mean, I'm clumsy and anything that is made out of glass and filled with water just seems dangerous. But, there are less fragile versions of this old favorite tradition that doesn't cost anything and is more durable that other options.
Spread Cheer with Family and Friends
Let's face it, the holidays are meant to be spent with family and friends. So, the best way to decorate your home for the holiday season is to spend time with the people that you love the most. And most importantly, have fun and enjoy your time with your loved ones.
