I love sharing my Christmas decor! And this year I am also sharing a great tip on how to raise your Christmas tree, and it is SO simple!
Mainly because I think I have completely embraced and reclaimed the space over our mantle now that the tv has been moved elsewhere. Yay!
(Be sure to check out my past Christmas decor tours.)
I also have an amazing and SUPER simple little trick for you to easily raise your Christmas tree and it will barely cost you anything.
You won’t want to miss that!
It may very well look this way for years to come because I am completely smitten with it.
The oversized chalk art is my favorite.
I hand drew it on chalkboard paper and mounted it on black foam core.
It’s propped behind the frame.
The lights around the frame are little fairy lights and they twinkle.
The whole thing is pretty magical in person!!
You can find the tutorial for the moss Christmas tree here.
Here are a few more festive corners of the house…
It’s a fun way to sneak in more decorations and more Christmas lights into the room.
I usually keep it fairly simple with a little bit of greenery and some pops of white and red.
You can find a tutorial for making my sweet fabric chalkboard bunting here.
These are my sweet snowmen paired with some woodland-themed Christmas decorations.
See how I made the Mason jar woodland winter scenes.
I also have a tutorial for those wrapped Christmas gift decorations.
Can you believe they are made from stretched canvases?
This lantern is holding my bottle brush Christmas trees.
This poinsettia wreath is one of my favorite handmade holiday wreaths!
I tucked the snowman ornament on it to add to the winter look, but he’s completely removable.
The prelit tree was 8 years old and the lights were starting to die strand by strand.
It was so sad!!
Plus it was ginormous to store so we downsized.
I miss that giant tree!
But did you see on Instagram how I raised the new Christmas tree?
This would both make the tree look taller AND allow easier access to placing presents under the tree.
He came back to me with 4 pieces of 6″ x 1/2″ PVC pipe.
I admit, I was skeptical!
But he placed the pieces of PVC pipe under each tree leg and… my tree was suddenly 6″ taller!
It’s sturdy and, after adding the tree skirt, gave exactly the look I wanted!
And the beauty of the whole thing?
It only cost a couple of dollars and practically no time at all to cut the pipe.
That’s my kind of fix!
How is your Christmas decor coming along?
I still have to put up the kids’ tree and finish decorating outside.
Then I’m ready to sit back and relax and stare at my mantle for a while!!
>> See where I party! <<
