Deck the Halls... {Our 2011 Christmas Decor}


Adorning our entryway mirror is now this fabulous twig style wreath, strung with a strip of torn drop cloth, and embellished with silver pine cones and leaves. Simple, but stylish.

Sitting upon our entry table is now this 60cm red and white Christmas tree (in a cute metal red bucket).  The candle holders and Santa statue are also festive additions. As well as the little star ornament on the drawer handle.


Our Christmas tree sporting a new star on top!

This gorgeous red metal star was half price at Lincraft and is a perfect addition to the top of our tree.

My two turtle doves, glittering from the handles of our repurposed side table.
They look so beautiful.

This entertainment storage cupboard (that is on my long project list of things to redo) sits next to our TV and is now topped with lots of Christmas goodies, including our snowman, pine cones, light up twig thingy (cost only $2 but looks amazing lit up at night) and this year's framed Santa photo.

And this year I found somewhere to hang our glittery Joy sign - on our beautiful white lantern.

Another project on my list are these used shutters. I intend to paint them grey and shabby them up.  In the meantime, I've hung them in the lounge room and used some more strips of canvas drop cloth to attach cane wreaths.  Again, simple, but they fill the the blankness of the wall and fit in with the vintage/shabby Christmas style of our house.  

And sitting upon my craft storage bookshelf is my bargain star I picked up on the weekend for $1.  
So happy with the way it sits next to the basket and old books.
