Our Handmade Christmas Decoration

It’s Day 2 of our Countdown to Christmas!! Christmas is just 23 days away and I am soooo freakin excited. And I am back with another fun-filled post for you all to help boost YOUR excitement. Today I am taking you through our handmade Christmas decoration journey! Each of us made our own wooden ornament, we made a Wreath, and some cute little centerpiece decor for our table. Check it out below!

Sailor wooden ornament
Dad decided to make an ornament too. I’m not sure how to feel about his. In my opinion, it looks unfinished. But maybe I’m just closed-minded and this is indeed true art.
Wooden bird ornament
I made a little birdie. Look how cute it is.

The girls had sooo much fun painting their ornaments. They didn’t make much of a mess either. Can you believe that?
DIY Christmas centerpiece
We tried to get a little fancy here. We wanted to add some Holiday cheer to our dining room table so we grabbed a couple of cylinders a big Apple-Cinnamon scented candle and some mini-ornaments, pine cones, etc. and let our creativity fly. I think it came out kinda nice. 🙂
I took some leftover gold and red tinsel and weaved it around a wire Wreath frame. I then added a few flowers to liven it up a bit. We added some gold glitter to the ivory flower to really make it POP.

We still have a whole bunch of other Holiday projects on our to-do-list so the fun is nowhere near over. This is such an excellent time of year to squeeze in some good ol fashioned quality family time and I am going to take full advantage. 

Tonight is our third night of our “25 Days of Christmas Reading Challenge” and we will be reading The 12 Days of Christmas. I have a feeling the girls are going to like this one. 🙂

    My family doesn’t celebrate Christmas, but we get together often and make a real event of it. So we – and the kids – never feel like they’re missing out on anything. One of the best parties we had was a luau, complete with professional dancers. It was a blast!

  2. I love the idea of puting ornaments inside of a cylinder. It’s pretty and practcal. You can very easily change it out of the next holiday! Thanks for sharing

    1. Absolutely! And it just looks so pretty too.

  3. Setting up the tree and hanging the decos is always super fun.
    Plus big sis and I would get started baking some little treats this weekend and I just cannot wait 🙂

  7. I love the glass containers filled with green sprigs and decorations — so easy, yet elegant! Love family traditions, too, especially this time of year! Have a happy holiday!

  8. I love to decorate and we usually put up 6 trees in our home. There is something about the soft lights and the sparkle of the ornaments which always reminds me to look for the beauty every day. I love using glass cylinders because they are so versatile! I have some glass vases and uses them seasonally. Blessings to you!
