“Could the magic of Christmas be that it never loses its magic?”
Slowly, year by year, I am trying to revamp my Christmas decorations style. I know you know what I mean. Some people love the vibrant reds and greens, others dream of the “snow-frosted” white Christmas. I like vintage pieces, but also rustic DIY projects. I think I’m still in the process of finding my Christmas style, but I’m getting there.
Below you’ll find some of my favorite pieces, and for the most part where you can buy them and how much they cost. Because let’s be real here – you need to know the good good if you want to replicate anything you see in your own home.
Let’s start out with some home decor you probably saw in last year’s Christmas segment (shout-out to my ONE YEAR blogging anniversary coming up!).
That beautifully-glowing Christmas present glass box was given to me by a friend. Get this – someone made it for them! So it is doable. My best guess is a frosted glass box, some twinkle lights on the inside, and a big bow to tie it off.
The “Merry Christmas” sign is from my all-time favorite vintage/rustic Christmas shop,
The Old Candle Barn in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. It was $8.99. This is the same place I bought my little caroler girls for $3.99/each.
The “Holiday House Rules” came from Kohl’s and cost $29.99 originally but I know I wouldn’t pay that (LMAO); I remember buying it on sale during Black Friday in 2016.
The wooden “tray” is new from Home Goods and cost $12.99. I think it adds a nice rustic touch to the wooden coffee table. I remember buying the reindeer candle holder from Kohl’s years ago. That Fireside candle is from the Shady Maple Gift Shop (also located in Lancaster, PA).
Per usual, I have to include a couple photos of my Christmas tree – would it be a Christmas post without it?!
That sign above my tree came from Home Goods for $14.99.
I got my tree from Big Lots on Black Friday in 2016 for $59.99. Incredibly good find.
One of my favorite ideas this Christmas are these pillowcases. Casey Holmes posted about this genius idea on Snapchat and I was determined to replicate this in my home when I got the chance. Here is where you can buy all six pillowcases for your throw pillows for $19.99. Then I bought a pack of four pillows (18″ x 18″) for $19.99. Instead of buying a single pillow for $15-20 depending on where you go, you can invest in the pillows and swap out 4-6 cases each season for the price of one. You’ll save storage space and $$ spent on decorative throw pillows!
“All Hearts Come Home at Christmas” pillow is from the Old Candle Barn and cost $7.99.
Lastly, I have this really cool DIY project involving a galvanized vase and some branches I picked out and put together. I think I’ll save this for its own blog post.
So those are my holiday decorations for 2017! How about yours? Do you have a blog post up detailing your finds? Is there something I can add to my collection? Lmk in the comments below!
