Christmas Decor {Miss December}

December 30, 2013

Can we just take a moment of silence and honor the pass of Christmas? Is it just me or is this one of the most lame times of the year? I’m telling you, the few days after Christmas I’m just a little sluggish and a lot sad that Christmas came and went so stinking fast. I always hit up Target the day after to score some discounted wrapping paper & what nots, but if it weren’t for that, I’d never leave my Christmas tree lit home.

The last tradition I want to share with you guys is all about decor. I’m Christmas decor obsessed. Every year I make a new piece of decor, and it’s turned into a fun little tradition. Of course there will always be the making of ornaments. This year I forgot until Christmas Eve, but alas, I whipped one up in 30 minutes and called it done. It’s r e a l wonky, but I love it.

This year, I made a Merry Christmas banner and several PomPom garlands. Oh, and I took some sparkly card stock and cut incredibly wonky stars for a fun installation. These are high end DIY crafts right here guys, duh!

The point of the tradition is to have fun making them, not have perfect magazine worthy crafts. I can not wait for my kids to one day help me in the decor making process. It’s such a fun tradition and brings such originality to our home verses just buying Target decor (even though I reallllllllyyy want those sparkly silver trees). If you’d like to see our Christmas home tour, head here.

We were blessed beyond measure this year. Our Christmas season was full
of family and celebrating the birth of our Savior. I know my posts here on Traditions were very materialistic in a sense, but the truth is, our Christmas is spent focused on the birth of Christ. We have fun traditions, of course, but our desire as that as our children get older, we start new traditions centered around Advent, the Gospel, and Christ’s birth.

Thank you ladies of MSWB! I had such a fun time guest posting. I hope some of you readers left my posts with inspiration to start your own traditions.
