Just add Egg Nog

The Christmas decorating has come to an end, and I have nothing left to do except to look around and enjoy it all. I'll share with you some of my favorite holiday decor around here. I loved putting ornament all over the place, not just on the tree. They are cheap and add lots of color quickly. I found most of mine from Goodwill over the last few months.

Here are some hanging from my chandelier, with some pearl garland.

Hangin' out in my China Hutch...

On a mini tree in the kitchen...

And from some photos on the wall...

 Another thing I did for Christmas was make a Christmas card holder. Last year I had them sitting all over the place, and they never had a good home. This year I decided to make a card holder with some ribbon that I bought from Michaels. I picked up this "Christmas Blessings" sign from Ross for $4.99. I thought that would be a perfect fit for our friends and families cards, since that is just what they are - Christmas Blessings. Cheesey? Ohhh Yes, and I love it.

I just hot glued the ribbon to the back, and glued some clothes pins to the front of the ribbon...

 Cheap and easy... just how I like it. Don't take that the wrong way you dirty little mind. ;)


One last Christmas project that I did also involved ribbon and my hot glue gun. Oh how I love hot glue guns.  I cut my ribbon so it would hang down from the top of my bookcase. I cut the ends in a banner cut. Then I used antique gold spray paint on some little wooden letters that I got for $1 each at Michaels. I hot glued them to the ribbon and wa-la... a little custom banner to frame my shelf. ...just in case I forget which day Christmas falls on. (insert sarcasm)

Yeah, kinda pointless I know, but it was fun to make. ;)

And that wraps up my little tour 'O Christmas decor. That's all folks!
I hope you enjoy your Christmas Eve's Eve tomorrow and stay warm.
