Our 2016 Christmas Decor

Hey guys! We’re not a proper home DIY and design blog if we don’t show y’all our Christmas decor (not that being proper has ever been our forte). The big news this year is we finally upgraded from our tiny 4-foot, apartment sized Christmas tree to a massive 7.5-foot tower of pre-lit glory. Hello Handsome!

Our ornament situation is pretty simple. A mix of snowflakes, silver and red balls, and a sprinkling of homemade ornaments/ones we’ve been given over the years.

Don’t mind the fuzz all over my leggings… right before this we made a DIY faux fur tree skirt (we’ll post about that later) and clearly I can’t be bothered to lint roll mahself. You can see the tree skirt peeking out in the photo below.

Luckily, not too much on our tree is breakable (at least on the lower tiers) since we have this little munchkin claiming her new favorite spot.

It’s hard to imagine what our little OG tree used to look like in this spot, so I’ll just show ya.

So teeny right? Now the little tree lives in our office. I could see it traveling to a new spot each year… this one works for now though. We opted to forego ornaments on this one (mainly because we needed all of them to fill our big tree… haha) but we did wrap it with a DIY faux fur garland (we’ll post on that later too).

Some Christmas decor also landed on our coffee table. We got this little burlap wrapped tree from Michaels earlier this season before the holiday aisles looked like a post-apocalyptic raided drug store, and while chances are they’re out of stock, this one on Amazon looks the exact same AND is actually cheaper than what we paid for it… dang it.

We’ve had this little JOY glitter sign for years, and it happily sheds sparkles wherever it goes, but I think it’s super cute. These looked nice and wintery paired with our white constellation hurricanes from West Elm.

We also sprinkled some Christmas vibes on our dining table. We actually went with a look that was more wintery than Christmas-y so we can leave it up for a while.

Evan made these copper balls out of wire. We need to post about those as well; they look great on the table, in a bowl, or as ornaments.

On our back door we’ve got one of the wreaths we made for our West Elm pop up shop. We had to hold onto one for ourselves!

Our deer is looking extra Christmas-y with the holiday decor as well. So purdy.

I love this view of the tree with our art wall behind it. After taking the deer pic above, I had to take this tree photo as well.

And as always, Jack Skellington in his holiday garb is making an appearance.

And Christmas is not complete without a giant explosion of wrapping paper and ribbon! Let the wrapping party with mom, Evan, and beer commence! Merry Christmas y’all.

    Cool decor!
    I’ve decorated the house ‘n my office and this year after seeing one on the ‘net, I made a small book tree in my office from hardback books including some Rowling, Tolkien, Lewis and Milne, and decorated it with small ornaments and green/silver wrapping ribbon.
    Greetings to the fam! Merry Christmas!

    Awesome decor! Also, we were fidgeting around with our own L-O-V-E Marquee letters (thanks to your tutorial on how to build these! We used them as our wedding decor this past August) and decided to make an ‘N’ and rearrange the lightbulbs to spell out N-O-E-L for the christmas season! :)
