Freebie Christmas Print

It’s the holiday season – and one of the best times of the year. I won’t lie, we’ve had our holiday decorations up since November 6th…but it always feel more magical once December rolls around.

We just love the way our home looks full of garland, glowing lights and pine scents wafting around. Our home feels so cozy and it’s so fun to get our family and friends together during this time.

I’ve always been a fan of the traditional holiday colors such as red, green and gold…but recently I saw some amazing decorations that included navy and I fell in love. Inspired by these colors, I made a quick print that is a little more modern than my own decor, but it will look so chic in a gold or white frame! You can get it here, or on my freebies¬†page.

Please feel free to print this and hang it up around your home, but if you share it online, link back to myself for credit.

I hope you are having a great start to your holiday and enjoy!

Decor On A Budget | DIY

I am always looking at decorating ideas on Pinterest (find me here¬†), and I’ve been trying to find some options that are budget-friendly, and versatile. We have a spare room that has many purposes such as a guest room, craft room, storage and we hope a nursery within the next few years. With so many different purposes, I need decor that can be easily moved or taken down, and decor that does not put a hole in my pocket.

Decorating

 

We actually had a lot of left over wedding supplies, and they have just been sitting in Chris’s office for the past few months. This past week, I found some really cute uses for wood slices – which is perfect, as we had about 30!

First, I lightly sanded our wood slices. I did not care to make them smooth as long as I was not going to get a splinter while painting. I have painted just a few little scenes on our wood slices, and then I covered them in a gloss to protect them and prevent any further splintering/chipping.

Take a look!

 

These are barely larger than the size of my hand outstretched and my plan is to get some picture hanging tools to attach to the back. They are also fairly lightweight, and should be able to be hung with nothing more than a thumbtack.

So there you have it! These were essentially free to create as I already had the paint, gloss and wood slices. For those that do not have these supplies, I have seen wood slices at craft stores (such as Hobby Lobby or Michaels) for less than $5.00 a piece. Acrylic paint can be found at Walmart for less than $1.00.

Have you been able to find any cheap decorations for your walls? Let me know below!
