last year, i was aiming for mostly homemade decorations. it was our first christmas in this house and i didn't want to go buckwild buying seventy-two-million ornaments. i wanted our collection to grow naturally, year by year.
i started with a pile of yellow and white yarn...
...and ended up with hundreds of pom-poms!
...from which i made a festive tree garland!
i also made this deceptively-simple twisted felt garland:
i threw on some dollar store snowflake ornaments and yellow and white lights:
not too shabby.
i didn't stop there though -- my next step was adding christmas curlicues...
i went with a yellow/gold theme for wrapping gifts as well:
...and i stopped by michael's last month to scope out some faux white poinsettias. i ended up leaving with these pearlescent white berry sprays instead...but i still might go back for the flowers. i think big, bright white poinsettias would be such a pretty addition to our tree. i'm not sure yet. i don't want to go overboard.
our 2013 tree pictures are coming soon...!
do you have a color theme for your tree?
do you keep it the same year after year or do you like to switch it up?
