Welcome to my home! This is our second year doing a flocked Christmas tree and I swear we’ll never go back. I love the feeling of Winter and snow in our home! I toned down our ornaments and stuck with just a few basics – gold glittered stars, gold glittered pine cones and some white snowflake ornaments. Since we do have little ones I let them decorate the tree first and then a few days later I went to town and took everything down and redid the tree! The good news is… they’re too young to notice I even swapped them out! I doubt I’ll be able to get away with that next year.
Last week I featured a DIY Gold Glittered Pinecone craft that I did. I decided to apply that same look to some old wood stars that I had – check out the ornaments below! Anyway, in last week’s post you will also be able to see the holiday display that I have on the other side of my living room. Check it out!
I have seen a lot of cute white stockings with monograms this year, and I was tempted to buy new ones, BUT I stuck with our red and blue crystal monogram stockings we have been using for a couple years now. Also, since I decided to keep the bright ornaments off the tree this year, I did use them on display on our coffee table in a leaf bowl. They look super festive and bring some color to the room.
The mini glittered pinecones I found at Michael’s.
And this is one of my old star ornaments that I glittered out just like I did the pinecones. The white and gold play off each other so well! I couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out.
I have a love for gold, glitter, and DIY, so I thought it would be fun to do a little project to add to my Christmas decor this year. My mom recently purchased glittered pinecones and that pretty much inspired me to do them myself. They came out so pretty – I love them! They are super easy to do, even for a person new to DIY! Check out more DIYs on my Pinterest board!
Here is all that you will need: pinecones – I purchased a bag of these at Michael’s, Recollections Gold Glitter, a paint brush and Mod Podge.
Step 1: Brush mod podge onto any area of the pinecone that you want glitter on.
Step 2: Sprinkle gold glitter onto pinecone
Step 3: Shake off excess glitter and let it dry!
Some of my pinecones have glitter practically everywhere and some I just sparkled out the tips/edges. Either way, they look great!
I displayed my pinecones on a glass cake stand with a cute little owl!
I am really happy with the way everything turned out!! The gold tree on the other cake stand was white and I decided to glitter that out too!
I love December! Everyone seems so happy and in the holiday spirit, my kids love the house all decorated and I just love the beauty of it all – trees, lights, the smell of peppermint, family time, lit fireplace, hot chocolate, and sparkly ornaments! Here are a few of my Christmas inspirations for this year!
I love the idea that December is so dreamy and has the power to make people so happy! What a great quote this is!
Not only is this Christmas tree pretty, but I love the DIY garland! Check out the DIY tutorial from The TomKat Studio
My family officially does flocked Christmas trees now!! This is not our tree, but this truly shows the beauty of a white Christmas tree – feels like snow is in the air! I also love the gold chair, sequin pillow and white Moroccan pouf!
Pretty Christmas window display – the ornaments hanging from the rod are so creative, and I love the gingerbread houses as well! So cute!
Love the pure white look of the mantle, stockings and trees!
This wreath totally pops against the red door – I love the use of fresh apples and acorns. This is super creative and pretty!
This wall and floating shelf looks so rich with Christmas decor – I love the use of ornaments hung on the wall, gold tones and glass accents!! Beautiful!
