Let the countdown begin! How many of you remember making paper chains to countdown the days to Christmas? I remember a few back in the day.. made out of red and green construction paper. And how about those advent chocolate calendars? Every little piece of chocolate bringing one day closer to Christmas morning! I love creating fun little traditions like that for my daughter, so this year I set out to make a colorful Christmas countdown with 25 days packed full of fun holiday activities.
Happy Holidays!! It’s after Thanksgiving so I can say that now, right? For crying out loud, it’s after December 1st already! Can you believe it?? I think I missed a few days… must have been the turkey coma. All of the sudden Christmas is 23 days away!! Did that just send you into a head spinning panic whirl?? I’m right there with ya!
I’ve been feverishly trying to get all the holiday decorations up and thankfully I think we are ready. Well, maybe. In any case, I got up some holiday front door decor so for anyone that is just passing by the house it looks like we totally have it all together. Nevermind the chaos that is going on behind that closed door…
Time to get the Halloween porch decorations ready for all the trick-or-treaters that are gearing up for loads of candy! I wanted to do something a little different, a little bigger than last year. I made a trick-or-treat banner for the front door decorations and added some lights to make it glow at night.
We’re going all Halloween this week at Creatively Southern as we start gearing up for a neighborhood Halloween Party in a few weeks. I needed some cute and easy Halloween decorating ideas, so I headed to Michael’s craft store for some inspiration. I picked up a small craft pumpkin and some floral picks and created an easy Halloween centerpiece for our party table.
I can’t believe it’s already October!! I spent part of the weekend trying to get some Halloween decorating done, starting with this Grandinroad Inspired Halloween Wreath which is donning the wicked mantel this year. This wreath caught my eye because of all the different patterns and I loved the broom and witch hat accessories. I set out to a few craft stores and made a knock-off version of this wreath for only $40, and I’ll show you how. [Please click to continue reading…]
Have I mentioned that I love fall?? Yeah, thought I might have brought that up a time or two. 🙂 I’m over at the The Girl Creative today sharing my new Fall Burlap Wreath tutorial. This is so easy and quick to put together, which is great when you’re trying to push out a new wreath during naptime! 🙂 Hope you’ll hop on over to Diana’s blog and check out my post!
