Holiday Front Door Decorating With Ice Skates

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…

Grandinroad Inspired Halloween Wreath

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...]halloween knock-off wreath

Earlier I shared my fall mantel display which included more neutral colors and natural decor like this jute Fall wreath. This wreath is so easy to make, but does take a little time. Here’s how I made this wreath for less than $15!

I used a white 16″ styrofoam wreath form for the base. You can see I had a little helper on this one. (Love those little baby hands!) :) [Please click to continue reading...]

Minnie Mouse Wreath

Happy Wednesday!! On Monday,  I shared all the fun pictures from Bree’s 2nd Birthday Party. As promised, I wanted to share with you the Minnie Mouse Wreath that I made for the party, even though all the humidity kept me from hanging it outside. Yes, even duct tape didn’t keep it up!? WHUUT!??  I know, crazy.

This was a fun crafty wreath that went perfectly with her birthday party theme, and I was able to make it in under 20 minutes! I mean like 20 minutes before the party started. :) [Please click to continue reading...]
