Today is the day I officially started decorating for Christmas. Why so soon? Because my home is scheduled to be on a couple online Christmas tours this year starting the first week in December! So I’m not waiting until after Thanksgiving to deck the halls. I’ve gotta start doing it now or I won’t be ready! It was such a gloomy day here today, I’m surprised my photos turned out as bright as they did.
Want to see my first DIY Christmas decor project? I created a simple door hanging with a trio of boxwood wreaths.
They’re not fragrant, but I love the soft, shiny leaves.
If I remember correctly, I purchased the trio of Christmas boxwood wreaths from Decor Steals.
Add a few inches for looping the ribbon around each wreath.
I found 2 spools of this ribbon at the local November flea market.
Make sure you wrap it so the ribbon runs behind the wreaths.
Use another piece of ribbon to tie a bow, allowing the ends to trail down a bit.
My first official DIY Christmas decor project is done! Last year I made fresh boxwood wreaths for Christmas. This year I decided to purchase preserved boxwood wreaths so they’d last longer. I’m lovin’ this simple look for the door!
Speaking of Christmas, I’m teaming up with several bloggers to give away a $500 Visa gift card and an iPad Mini! The giveaway starts Monday, November 18th. Be sure to stop back and register to win an iPad Mini and/or $500 Visa gift card!!
