Wow, I had such an amazing Thanksgiving Break but I have seriously missed you guys! Last week was so relaxing and I loved every second of it. First Vegas with the hubby, then Thanksgiving with my in-laws, then we went straight into Christmas. This weekend we took our annual trip to our favorite tree farm and cut down our Christmas tree. It was the first year Miss E was aware of the whole process and she was quite the helper. The cutest part was, after my husband cut down our tree she walked right over and sat on the stump like that was the whole point of cutting down the tree.. so she could have her own little seat. So cute. Makes my heart melt.

This weekend was also spent decorating our house for the holidays. It’s not even close to being done yet and I think I added about 15 projects to my ‘to-do’ list, but I did mange to complete a few new things…. just a few.

Remember my Fall Twig Wreath I shared a few months ago? Well, it got winterized this weekend! Here is my Winter Twig Wreath.

After I posted by Fall Twig Wreath, Lucy gave me the idea of painting it white for Winter and I decided to go for it. I’m adding a lot of red to my holiday decor this year and I loved the contrast of the white twigs and the red ornaments.

I used a can of basic white spray paint on the wreath and let it dry overnight. It was so simple and it completely transformed the look of the wreath.

The red ornaments came from The Dollar Tree. Seriously, I love the Dollar Tree. Love.

    Super cute! Is it bad that I used a store-bought swag this year? It’s not my normal but it reduced my stress a ton to be able to just STICK IT UP there and have it be decorated. :) I love this one!

    Your winter wreath is so pretty, white sticks with red ornies. Love the simplicity and contrast.
    I took my fall wreath apart that I tried to copy from yours. Just might have to try it again making one similar to yours. I had all my old faux pine garlands out today but then hubs decided to make trees with tomato cages.. He snagged all my garlands and whatever else he thought he might need.
    I got rid of so much Christmas stuff this past spring but thankfully didn’t toss all the garlands. (what I didn’t keep went to the thrift store.) He’s wrapping them around the tomato cages then wrapping lights around them. We’ll have 2 or 3 of these trees and will put them up on a patio table we have on front porch. Have to try to keep them out of “hands” and mouth of resident dog. When he gets bored he tends to dismantle decorations. The first winter we had him he ate pretty much all the light strings, the connectors, you name it. I bought a vinyl holiday tablecloth at the thrift store a few weeks ago so that will make the table that needs painting look somewhat better with the trees on them. Happy week

    I love this take on a winter wreath! The red balls are great for Christmas and you could take them off and put pine cones on to last the rest of the winter. Thanks for sharing.

    I love your wreath! It’s so pretty. Plus I’m a BIG fan of red and white for Christmas so this is perfect in my book! It’s like rustic glam! Love it.

    Love this wreath! I am currently challenging myself to “use what I’ve got” for my Christmas Decorating. This is a PERFECT project. Thanks for sharing, Roxana
