Back to Crafting: A Christmas Garland

With all the snow and negative temps I have managed to stay warm inside and snuggle up with my lights. 

I wanted just a little extra white to anchor the back of my Christmas setting on my dresser. We have like $0 right now to spend on ANYTHING let alone decor. So, what did I do? I rallied up some muslin that I had previously bought at JoAnn's (an old sheet would work well too!), I cut/ripped it into about 6 inch strips and tied it on a strand of lights. Done! 

When I'm done with my little set up here I will show you more but isn't it pretty? 

I especially like how it hangs off of the ends. 

 ( pst- I know that book isn't in English but one of my goals is to learn German! *crossing fingers that this book is actually auf Deutsche!) 

We have been setting up some other traditional decor like this advent calendar my mom made for us when we were kids! 

This is the first year I have put it out and they loved it! It was a great way to talk to them about the Christmas Story!

AND... The tree is up and has been since November 1st! 

I am not hosting Thanksgiving at my house and since I already shared my sentiments on fall decor right now I'm going full speed ahead into Christmas and winter!  I can't wait to show you the new sweater pillow covers I made!
