I think I'm addicted...

To Christmas decor that is! I have always been a huge fan of the Christmas season, but now as an adult I am even more addicted. I know my house will never look like these in the pictures, but I love the ideas and a girl can always dream!
Today I found some really great and creative ideas, that seem like I could tweak them a little and have my very own DIY projects for some chic new Christmas decor. See what ya think.

Not only do I want B to built me a piece like this but I also want to make a wreath like the one hanging and use some fabulous ribbon similar to the one in the pic.

I have some old wood frames that are natural wood color and I think I could paint and destress them, add some garland, berries and Christmas cheer and....VIOLA!!! A Christmas display.


This read tree caught me eye, and I saw one at Crate and Barrel for about $40....I think I could make one for way cheaper. Yay or Nay??



I am in love with my new gold glass balls and I just can't put them enough places....now I just need this little number!


Happy Holidays!
