Christmas decorations

To kick this off I am going to post the various decorations that the husband and I have made to get in the spirit of the holiday season. We are not going to be around our house for Christmas so we did not go ALL out, but we did some things that were easy and consists mostly of things that we already had lying around.
These pictures are not awesome, so you'll have to fill in with your imagination.

1. Front door wreath
First up, the husband makes things! He made a beautiful wreath for our front door out of cedar branches and pine cones. I was so impressed.2. Our china cabinet.

I just put Christmas bulbs, fabric scraps, and pine cones in bowls and glasses on the shelf.

3. Christmas boughs in a vase, with a side of kitty.

"Oh me? I'm doing nothing up here."

4. Christmas yarn projects.

I made a yarn wreath using a styrofoam wreath and balls, all covered in yarn. I also crocheted a single poinsettia blossom (pattern from The Fabled Needle) and mistletoe, from my brain.

I also made a garland with granny square inspired shapes. The star I got from here.


  1. Great pictures, Molly. Looking forward to more posts.


  2. Everything looks great! I love the wreath and the garland. Looking forward to seeing you all. Thanks for sharing.
