Inspiration Christmas around the House

We are less than a week away from Christmas! I have focused on planning our Christmas Eve dinner and decorated the house with a few crafts. Please take a look at a few photos below with my Christmas Decor ;) How are you doing with your Christmas preparations?




I tried writing everyone’s name on the Kraft paper runner and it out turned good. Assigning seats will save us from lots of arguments ;)


I’ve used a few of these acorns around the house and they are super easy to do. You can look at all the details here.



The photo above shows a close up of a shadow box I designed a couple of months ago. It was a really cool creative exercise and you can read more about it here.


This used to be a candy jar with little sweets from Germany I found at Costco. The jar was so cool I kept it. I put inside white sparkly powder, mini cotton balls, a white ornament deer and trees.


I put together this table with a few items I already had around the house. The table runner is made out of a Kraft paper roll. The stars are from a previous craft and I cut these at Ben Franklin Crafts die cut center. Across the middle of the table I put a snowflake garland I bought years ago from Crate and Barrel. My white plates are my every day plates also from Crate and Barrel. Lastly, I’ve been using my cake stands a lot! I used them for my fall decor and now I’m using them as a center piece element for this table. The sparkly trees are also from Crate and Barrel.  So what do you think? As always I love hearing your comments :) Cheers, Ursula.
