I made these cutie little ornaments from scrapbook paper and had the branches there from my fall decor...so I thought, what the heck? Let's decorate them too!
I used little bitty clothespins to clip the birdies on...so cute and simple!
Now, the husband won a cute little galvanized coca-cola tub with these in it...
(he drank every last one of them)...
I've got some plans in the making for these...so stay tuned for that!
And oh, my goodness...I saw the cutest cupcake christmas trees over at
36th Avenue , plus she has great ideas for handmade gifts under $5!
I decided that these would be my Christmas cards this year...Love, love, love it!!
Getting it all together!
Dollar store snowflakes!
I need something to hang off my planter posts on the new deck and I found these over at the Dollar Tree...sparkly and twinkly in the sun and the nighttime lights!
How are you decorating on a budget this year??
I visited on of my favorite blogs this morning Mayamade, and she, too, had a simple Christmas plan for a stress free holiday....a list. A list of things she wanted to do with her children, and it's all pre-planned so you celebrate what is important and meaningful in your holiday time with your family...
Here's my list...
1. Letters to Santa
2. Cinnamon ornaments
3. Salt dough snowmen
4. Visit Guido Gardens to see the lights.
5. Hot cocoa night
