I am pretty traditional when it comes to decorating for Christmas – I don’t like to do it until after Thanksgiving! Now that Thanksgiving has passed, it’s time to grab a few things to make my apartment ready for Christmas! I’m not doing much because of Fran, but I am excited to add a few little things to my home, especially since my boyfriend and I will be living in the same city during the holidays this year.
Mud Pie Tagged Burlap Stocking, $14
I have a cute little counter, and I think it would be adorable to hang these from! My favorite part of the stocking is the tag – perfect to write a name or a monogram on!
Oven Mitt, $11.20
Is it really a holiday if you don’t spend waaaayyy too much time in the kitchen? My mom’s side of the family is Italian, and a lot of our holiday family time centers around the kitchen. This isn’t exactly “decor,” but I like to hang my oven mitts on the bar on the stove, along with my dish towels. (Also, when your apartment is 750 square feet, I’m convinced everything becomes decor!)
Merry Christmas Burlap Banner, $24.95
I want to keep with the burlap theme, and I think this is perfect for that! This could also be a DIY project!
Boxwood Wreath, $69.95
I have been wanting a boxwood since I moved in to my apartment. I LOVE how festive this one is!!
Who doesn’t love a candle that looks like a sweater?! It’s like two of the most cozy things I can think of… combined!
Aside from these great items, I want to do two DIY’s – one involving pinecones because I collected a TON of them in South Carolina, and one involving a papier mache deer head like the gorgeous one A Mrs. Among Magnolias always has featured on her blog. If anyone knows where to find one, I would love to know!
So what about y’all? Any Christmas decor you’ve been eying? Any DIY decor projects in the works?
