Christmas Decor, Part I

(some supplies)

I do love decorating the house. And Christmas time of course requires a fresh set of decorations. 
So I'll just go through the sections.

The wreath: 
Crafted of course. The wreath is from Hobby Lobby and the sprag/picks (depending on your view) are from Hobby Lobby and Michaels. I attach mine with mini zip-cords. 
Ta-da:

Next up, the garland. You know I love a garland.  This one uses felt pendants, bells, and ornaments. 
I used a paint pen to write out be merry on the ornaments (frosted glass)

And sewed the felt pendants to some red yarns with a zig-zag stitch.  
(I did the same thing for the fall garland)

I then tied the ornaments and bells to the yarn in between the pendants:

There are three little scenes (i guess scenes, i don't know what else to call them) made from a variety of things.

On the coffee table, scene 1: pine cones, bowl with bells and gilded mini pine cones, cranberry pick, gold acorn pick, and a frosted white pick of mixed fruit and leaves, on a green felt pendant:

Other side of the coffe table: a pumpkin! (yes yes yes, deal with it) some felt in green and red, a candy-inspired pick, pine cone, glittered santa sign, and jar filled with mini ornaments  bells, gilded baby pine cones, and regular pine cones:

On the bar: a glittered noel sign, a bowl with bells, cranberries, and gilded mini pine cones, another filled jar, a felt stocking, white snowflake, and santa head. 


The stockings: (post to come on how to make these):

The mantel: 
In the middle, some candles, a leaf trivet, and a nativity scene ornament from the Wooley's:

On the sides: pine leaves, pine cones, and various metallic picks:


(Almost) All together now:
 

Hope you've had fun decorating for the holiday season!
