I hope y'all had a great Thanksgiving! We sure did! What a wonderful week full of family, food, and fun! :)
I am soooooo excited to finally be getting the Christmas decorations up! It just feels so magical now that T is a little bit older, and I wanted the whole house (well, at least the downstairs) to be completely decorated!
I know that we're on a bit of a tight budget, so I've been creative with a bunch of my decorations. I wanted a "new" look, but without having to buy anything. I thought I'd share some of my crafts this week with you so you can make "free" new decorations, too!
For these little cuties, here's all you'll need:
*Cardboard- I used diaper boxes because I had an abundance!
*Wrapping paper. I bought a double sided roll at Sam's 4 years ago, and I still have about half of it left!
*Ribbon, whatever you have!
For starters, I cut long, skinny rectangles out of the cardboard. I made 3 pieces because I'm a big fan of odd numbers :)
Finally, add a little loop on the back to make them easy to hang *DISCLAIMER* Do NOT use tape, as shown in the picture! I did, and all 3 fell down in the first hour. There are currently 2 on the floor again, so I will be fixing this with hot glue! I should have done this in the beginning, but wasn't thinking :)
Stay tuned for a few more easy Christmas decorations this week!!!!
