Handmade holiday

7 Dec

The weekend after Thanksgiving we hunkered down in front of the fireplace with some string, colored pencils, scissors, and card stock, and made some new Christmas decorations for our home this year. Then I boxed up half of our decorations from years past and shoved hubby out the door to Goodwill. The result: a wonderfully charming and handmade collection of holiday cheer. Just what we were hoping for this time around.


One proud big brother. Notice the family of 4 red nosed reindeer on the wall above his head, carefully drawn and labeled as dad, mom, big bro, and little bro.

Pennant flags *glee* hand decorated by the boys. And in the reflection, our happy mismatched stockings.

More happy, more mismatch…

The dining room fireplace. And more pennant flags!

And of course the tree.

Flags, wish envelope, and star.

The sweet ceramic angel that my dad made as a kid. I think I might have the boys re-create this one next year.

~ Be inspired this holiday season, friends! Then share with the group. I’d love to see what you’re cooking up this year. ~
