Show Me Christmas {Decorations}; Week 2;Link UP

Hey guys!! Welcome back for Week 2 {Decorations} of Show Me Christmas hosted by Aly @ Analyze This and myself. First, we just want to thank all of you who linked up last week. All 114 of you! It was so fun to hop around and see your guys' lists. I met some really cool bloggy friends, and I hope you did too!

So. This weeks theme is DECORATIONS.
{inside. outside. diy projects, you name it!}


Our Christmas Decorations: INSIDE

These are just a few of our items in our home, but it is definitely a collection that grows every year. Like I've mentioned before, I wait until after Christmas to snag up tons of x-mas decor that goes on sale 50-90% off. I plan on doing the same thing this year... and this year actually getting stuff for the outdoors. I also have tons of pinterest idea inspired crafts that I would like to carry out. If only I could find the time! 

Christmas Decorations: DIY {Christmas Tree on Canvas}
 First off, please don't laugh at me. Second, when Aly and I got together last week we had planned on doing "crafts" so that we could post about it on the blog. Well, that plan quickly went down the drain when we didn't quite "prepare" for craft day.. and the crafts we did start... well basically failed. I'd show you, but you would only make fun. 

But, I did paint a canvas. Silver. Because that was the only "Christmas color I had." Then Sunday night, while putting my post together, I realized I still did not have a DIY project to show you guys. And that was a big fat no no for me. So I remembered a pin I had pinned, and quickly went to work. This is by far the easiest project to do. And I'm actually going to do another one once I gather up wrapping paper from my mom and MIL.
Instructions:
-Gather left-over wrapping paper {the different colors the better]
-A canvas, any size. Mine up there is a 11x14.
-Roll the paper just like seen in the picture. Tape the paper. Then tape it down. {You can also use hot glue gun, but I plan on changing mine, so I wanted to make it easy to take off. And you honestly cannot see the tape at all!}
-Use something for the top as your "Star." I took off a little red ball from a decoration I had {haha} and just taped it on top!
-And wa-la! Done!

Want to see what a really cute one looks like? Yup. That's what I am going to make mine look like the next time I do it!!

So what are you waiting for?! Grab a button, make your post showing us your inside, outside, and any diy decorations and LINK UP! Be sure to hop around and check out what everyone else is doing this holiday season!

I can't wait to see what you guys have done for your decorations!!

  1. Holy moly girl- look at all those presents! I'm slightly jealous because I have barely started wrapping our present. I'm a terrible wrapper and much prefer gift bags but I didn't think they would be as fun for baby girl so wrapping paper it is. All of your decorations are beautiful and I'm quite impressed with your Christmas tree craft. It looks like something I might be able to handle without messing it up. :)
