Sometimes it’s less about function and more about fun. Sometimes it isn’t about blogable beauty. Every year the theme for my Christmas decor is mass participation and memories. When the kids are in college I’ll have my matchy matchy, envy inducing Christmas. For now, I love every bit of this messy merriment.
The star lights are called Strala and are from IKEA. Every year, toward the end of the season, they go down quite a bit in price so we grab a few to use the next year. I love using them, they make the entire room magical and fun. Also, this year when we were getting our tree at Home Depot, they were giving away the scraps from trees they had trimmed. I used these scraps for the wreath and garland on the fireplace. Laying out a kitchen is fairly easy to me. Crafting a wreath, however, is not. That being said, I think I did a decent job of it.
Have a wonderfully tacky holiday!
