My Christmas budget is quite small this year, so I decided to get creative for home decorations. I looked around the house to see what kind of materials I had on hand and managed to gather a few empty cardboard boxes and old yarn. This is what I ended up making:
Each hanging wreath was cut out of an empty cardboard box and then covered with yarn. All I did was secure the end of the yarn with a knot and wrapped the wreath until it was tightly covered.
These lovely little bells are from my old Christmas decoration stash, so I decided to use them in this arrangement instead. I only looped them on the top of the wreath so that I have the option to take them off or swap decorations without fuss.
Here is a closeup of the lettering. The word ‘Noel’ is also cut out from an empty tissue box, then wrapped up with yarn. They may look a bit imperfect, but it’s my handwriting, so I think it looks more authentic *^_^*

I am one of those people who loves to organize everything well ahead of time. I write lists, include alternatives and always keep everyone in the back of my mind for holiday gifts. This year, I’m just finishing up my Christmas shopping -just a few people left for initial gifts, then the task of wrapping and decorating all of them.
How about you? When do you start/finish your Christmas shopping?
My apologies for leaving you high and dry for so long. I allowed myself to get bogged down with lots of work and left no time for goodness and play…..so now I’m back and ready to get into blogging again!
I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year and has a positive outlook for the great experiences to come!
Wishing a very special holiday season to:
