2011 Decorations

I try to make a couple things to add to my decor each Christmas.  This year I had been planning to make a door 'wreath'. I found the frame at a garage sale back in October for $2.  It was perfect for my idea (stolen from Pinterest).  Then on Thanksgiving I got the ribbon and ornaments during Micheal's black Friday sale.  I'm so happy with how it turned out!

I don't have too many surfaces to decorate in my house so this is the majority of it.  Peyton's stocking still hasn't been embroidered.  I did get a quote this year and they wanted $17 to put her name on it.  No thanks.

I glittered these trees this year.  First time glittering anything.  Kinda messy and takes way more glitter than I expected.  Love them though.

I found this free printable and make an 8x10 then took an old black frame and spray painted it.  Then distressed it with some sand paper.

I love this tiny nativity set.  They are so cute!

I had some fun with my tree, homemade filters, and some textures.  I see a lot of people do the hearts, but I thought the Mickey Mouse would be so cute if I could get it to work.  So fun!
