A Very Merry Christmas Home Tour


A Very Merry Christmas Home Tour, Delineateyourdwelling.com

I am thrilled to be participating in A Very Merry Christmas Home Tour hosted by Carrie from Lovely, Etc with 30+ other talented ladies during this entire week!

Over the years, I have collected various Christmas items and sometimes those items don’t fit with each other or my current style.  I’m here today to say, grab some spray paint, a few of your various Christmas decor items and  maybe a few items when they go on sale after Christmas and you can keep your holiday decor on trend without having to buy all new every single year!

 

Upon entering my home, the first area you step into is our entry foyer.  I hung a 4′ hand painted tree.  I was inspired by *Ikea’s Tree fabric but with no Ikea in our state I decided I could easily recreate it myself!  I’ll be sharing the tutorial for this soon.  I hung some simple white pom garland and a Merry Christmas banner sold at my Etsy shop at the top of my tree.

Moving into our living room, I have the fireplace mantle full of evergreen winter loveliness.

I took an old mirror and gave it a few coats of chalkboard spray paint.  Each season I quickly paint the frame and it goes from peachy orange in the fall to vibrant green in the winter.

I found these four stockings on sale at Hobby Lobby a few years ago.  They can easily be reused year after year and with glass letters to represent each member in the family, we can switch who gets each stocking.  It makes the kiddos happy to pick which one they want each year.

I participated in a thrift store to Christmas decor series and made this fun Rustic Christmas twig Tree which I think fits so well in my home.

The last area I decorate for Christmas is the main wall in our dining room.  Typically this wall holds my clipboard gallery wall, but this year I wanted to try something different.

I was so excited for Oh Joy’s winter Target line to come out.  And here is my secret, if you are patient and wait less time than you think, Target puts everything on sale.  That is when I jump into action and get amazing deals on items that are just a few weeks old.  Are those three pinwheels (gold, mint green and grass green) not amazing, $6 and they weren’t even on sale!

I made the huge white pinwheel in about 10 minutes out of eight regular sheets of paper.  So easy!

And my table is featuring another Oh Joy favorite.  I got this lovely wooden tray during her Summer line and then they reintroduced it in the winter!

  1. I rarely comment, however i did some searching and wound up here A Very Merry Christmas Home
    Tour. And I do have a couple of questions for you if it’s allright.

    Could it be just me or does it look like a few of the remarks look
    as if they are coming from brain dead visitors? 😛
    And, if you are posting at additional online sites, I would like to keep up with anything new you have
    to post. Could you make a list of the complete urls of all your communal sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page
    or linkedin profile?

  2. Love all of your unique festive touches Amy! Thanks for letting us in for the tour! I am so in love with your painted tree in your entry! (no Ikea near me either!)

    1. Thanks for the kind words, Alice! I’ve got a DIY coming up on how to create the painted tree later this week. Now that I’ve made that one, I’m sort of wanting to paint something large and bold for each season… but not sure how the hubs feels about that idea. =)

  3. Lots of lovely stealable (I mean borrowable) ideas here – I especially love the painted tree banner and pom pom garland. I see that in my future for sure!

  4. Fantastic job on the holiday decor! The pinwheel wall is such a unique touch. Glad I’m not the only one who spray paints old , not -our-taste-anymore Christmas decor!

    1. Thanks so much, Jennifer. I think the pinwheels are my favorite part of the decor this year! And there isn’t much that a can of spray paint can’t change!

  5. So many pretty details, Amy! I love your tree. I totally know what you’re talking about for the IKEA fabric and I wish I had found out about it before I set up the three I have now ha! Next year 😉

  6. Love all of your handmade details Amy! You did a great job on that painted tree canvas/ fabric! Can’t wait to see the details. Wishing you a very merry Christmas and that an Ikea pops up near you soon! That is just NOT ok!

  7. You have such an eye for detail, Amy! I love all this magical touches. Decorating for the holidays is my favorite thing to do–one day we’ll upgrade to an actual tree (when space permits :). What a beautiful home tour!

    1. Thanks so much, Ahsley! Yes it was a GROSS fake planter filled with mulch and silk plants when we moved in. I emptied it and made a cover so it’s a tall bench now. Gross turned functional!
