Christmas Tour

I’ll start my Christmas home tour right at the front door. I wanted the front door to represent what the inside is like, full of Holiday Cheer. 

The garland that I used was from Micheal’s, I ended up using two on the door. I made the bows and just took a few pieces of the ribbon to put on the garland where I wanted it. The berries I got at Hobby Lobby, which are just shoved into the garland.

 We seem to get a lot of wind here, the first day I had the bows up on the pillars they blew away. When I put them back up I made sure to use zip ties to hold them to the garland. We wrapped all three of the pillars with garland and lights. Hubby also hung lights on the front of the house.

Come on inside

As you enter our home from the front door you walk into our foyer. My thought for the foyer and half bathroom was rustic Christmas.

Utilizing things around the house was my way of cutting cost with making changes to my Christmas decor. I did this by moving things from one room to another. 

This ladder is an example of how I utilized things I already had. The welcome sign, the gas lantern and the lantern on the floor where all items I had elsewhere in our home.

This is a great way to changing your everyday decor as well to give your home a new look.

Here is a close up of the lantern that is sitting on the floor. The Wheelbarrow was a tree ornament but I cut the string off and Mr. Snowman is a village accessory.

On the wall behind the ladder is where my coke crate hangs. The Coke crake was my inspirational piece on how I would do this room.

Tucked in the corner

This corner of the foyer is kind of strange, not really sure what our builder intended this corner to be used for. But thankfully I already had this shelf that fit perfectly.

On the second shelf those wood trees I picked up at my local Goodwill. The sign and truck are from Micheals, can you believe I got that truck for under five dollars. The only trouble is that one of the wheels was missing and it happened to be a front wheel. My wonderful husband was able to move the back wheel to the front, so it doesn’t even look like its missing a wheel.

This cute rocking horse is Winter, last year after Christmas I found Winter on clearance. My husband questioned why I still had Christmas out after I bought him. I told hubby no that’s not Christmas its Winter. He will be displayed after Christmas again this year as well. Winter

 

 

Half Bathroom

The half bath isn’t very big so I kept it simple in there. Santa’s sleigh and reindeer are made out of paper, I used my cricut to cut them out. Target’s dollar spot is a great place to find reasonable decor, that’s where the red truck came from last year.  

Half Bath

 

 

 

Behind the door is where the cow picture and shelf are. I kept this simple as well by adding the little tree and gift box. The gift box was extra I had from when I did the coke crate, the beads are normally on this shelf.

Heading into the living room

As you walk from the foyer to the living room we have this little wall with a mirror.  I wanted something that would tie the two rooms together and I thought the green from the wreath would go with the tree that is around the corner. The buffalo check ribbon I used other times in the foyer.

My crock has been kind of sitting in limbo since I found it this past summer at a flea market. So I had my son find some wood pieces, he then cut them to the perfect size. I used more of the buffalo check ribbon to tie the pieces of wood and pine assent pieces together.

Thanks for coming on my Christmas home tour part one with me. Keep a look out for Christmas Home Tour part two soon. 

 

                              Happy decorating ~ Jenny

    1. Thank you so much, Cherryl. I know what you mean about not finding a good deal. When I saw mine I knew even with a missing tire I could make it work. I read on a Facebook feed somewhere that someone went into the toy section at Walmart and found a very cute red truck and then just added the bottle brush truck her self. Thanks for visiting the blog. Merry Christmas

    1. Thank you, I think for the most part decorating is finding what you like and placing it where you want it. By adding or taking things away will help accomplish the look your after. Take my front door, for example, some might think its too much. I, on the other hand, think that I could add more next time.
