Budget Holiday Window Wreaths

I feel like every store is selling an array of the same holiday decor. It’s hard to sift through the good stuff, the bad stuff, the expensive stuff, and the budget stuff. As a girl on a budget this year, I’ve been hunting out items that look good, but don’t cost a ridiculous amount. A good example of this was the holiday wreaths that I wanted to put on the windows of my home this year. It’s such a cozy, New England type of style like the Pinterest image below.

$8 wreaths at Michaels! Sometimes on sale for $4!
Velvet Ribbons via Amazon found here. I just cut the bottom to make it look at tad more fancy.
These metal command strips are my best friends during holiday decorating. 
I think they look pretty good for about $10 a wreath. I’m satisfied.

Christmas Tablescape 2018

I think simple was the theme this year. Greens, silvers, whites, and glass. It felt right. Less is more this year.

My shopping was done on a total budget. Most of the items I purchased were from Target or Michael’s (our local craft store). You may recognize some of the greenery is from Hearth and Hand, Magnolia’s Target line. I also collected cloches and candle sticks from my own collection. The white nutcrackers were painted my moi. You can see that post here if you missed it. 

I’m really in love with my name tags. I bought a little tea set from Decor Steals. It is a complete ceramic set with saucers, teapot and cream and sugar. I finally found the perfect use for them! Eeek!

DIY Nutcracker Decor

I love Nutcrackers! But, some years I don’t love all the color they add to a room. I’m doing kind of a white-ish, snowy, silvery, green table and wanted sold, white nutcrackers.

No one sells white nutcracers.

But, craft stores like Michaels does sell wooden, unpainted ones! Yes! They sell large ones and little ones. You could paint them any solid color that would go with your decor. I’m imaging all the possibilities!

You will need only one can of spray paint that you can also find at the craft store. This is what I used because it’s what my craft store had for about $6.00. Again, you could use any color. How cool would a gold be?!
