Last week I shared with you our living room and today I’ve got just a little more to share. I don’t do much Christmas decor anywhere else, but my big kids like to decorate their rooms a little. They each have their own small trees and ornaments and we also do a little tree with colorful lights in the playroom.
After she decorated her little tree, my daughter kept saying, “I want it to be MORE Christmassy!!!” Ha! I dug around my boxes and came up with what I had. This seemed to make her happy.
Here’s my oldest son’s room- a tree and some garland with twinkle lights.
One of my favorite decorations we have are paper snowflakes. The first year I started making them, I stayed up super late on Christmas Eve trying to make an Elf-inspired Christmas morning for my kids.
Ummm, yeah I’m no Buddy the Elf. I made about eight snowflakes and then went to bed. But I saved the ones I made, and that winter, my oldest son wanted to learn how to make them too. Ever since then, he and I have been making more and adding to our collection every year.
I love that these are the cheapest and simplest decorations that I have but they definitely have the biggest impact and were the most fun to make and hang. Especially on our new black hallway. There are a million paper snowflake tutorials out there, but we just usually cut willy-nilly and then are surprised when we unfold and see what we made. There is a little technique in the folding though. Here’s a great step-by-step tutorial (with pictures!) on how to fold your paper.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
