So...umm....I've started a little "light" Christmas decorating :)
I just simply couldn't wait any longer.
I've been craving the cozy, warm (as in sit-by-the-fire), wintery holiday feeling...and for some reason I'm drawn to holiday decor that feels "cozy".
ie: anything made from wool/felt/pompoms, etc
I decided to roll with a red, white and grey colour scheme.
And I love it!!
I found the yarn at my local thrift shop, and the styrofoam balls and round brown cardboard (?) wreath form at the dollar store.
It's easy to make.....well, slightly time consuming to wind the yarn onto the styro balls...but I did the whole thing in about and hour and a half after the kids were in bed :)
Now I just have to decide where to hang it....
On my chalkboard wall in the kitchen (I kinda like the look of the grey wool against the chalk board) [first picture]
Or on my black front door...
Or where it is right now...on my mirror above the mantel.
I made some make-shift tree stencils and sprayed some spray-snow on the mirror.
I'm sort of loving the winter wonderland look, and how the curve of the mirror looks a little bit like a snowy hill.
If you want to try making a yarn ball wreath, there's a great tutorial over at Life through the Lens
