all wrapped up!

As promised yesterday, here is a 'whole' snap shot of my Christmas decor!!! And a little how I took my theme and added touches of it around the house, and where is found some great goodies on the cheap!

Tree, all lit up and sparkly!!!! Notice Garland.


 DIY Garland, in a simple link pattern - looping stripes of paper together like in elementary school - so simple and looks fab! I took the same paper and folded into thirds, then ripped and glued. The gently ripped edges too just like the nearby wreath !!! Notice Gold and Silver ornaments! Gold ornaments are new this year...head to the dollar store ladies! I swear. Edit and you will be sooo surprised! 5 dollars and I have a tree full of ornaments that look just like my $10/pc ones! 
 Silver frames, random red ornaments (they are all around the house!), vintage gold candlesticks (Goodwill for 99cents each!), creamy candles to match the book pages! 
 The same 'loops' used in garland were used to hang our cream stockings. We don't have a mantle so I hung them in the same area on large painting. 
The whole shebang! I tried to step back and squeeze everything in! Left to right: Tree, desk with Nutcracker and added gold Eiffel tower! Wreath. Stockings. {To the left of the tree is the entertainment unit which has the gold candlesticks} In the kitchen I have an arrangement of mason jars (just waiting for another fresh bunch of flowers - red roses preferably - HUBS?? so not pictured!) 

 So that is a little snap shot of how I decorated for Christmas this year!!!! Thoughts??? I in total spent in the ballpark of 60 bucks, and 40+ of that was my tree! Just time, DIY love and a bit of searching and I LOVE IT!!!
