I had the great pleasure of decorating today for my friends, David and Renee. They love Christmas decorations, but not the process of decorating. Luckily, that is what I love to do the most! I bought a few new things for them, and used some of what they had.
When I arrived this morning, they had Christmas music playing for me. I was just able to loose myself in the Christmas spirit!
Here is their holiday home!
I made a couple of things for their home. I found some Christmas sheet music at a yard sale a few weeks ago. (I knew that it would come in handy for something!) I cut letters out of cardboard, and just wrapped them in the sheet music. Super easy and cheap.
I had to make several little cuts to get around the curves.
I added them to a box with fresh cut cedar, pinecones and ornaments.
I also made this picture. I printed Renee’s favorite poem on a thicker white paper, ripped the edges and Modge Podged it to a burlap canvas. I framed it in a yard sale frame.
There are cedar trees all over Murfreesboro! There were probably 20 in the tree line along the Sproles property line. I headed out with my clippers and had plenty of fresh greenery.
David’s main request was to find a way to work in some lanterns. I found this pair over at TJMaxx. I added the battery operated candles. With so much fresh greenery around, I did not think real candles was a good option!
I hope that the Sproles are enjoying their home this evening!
I hope to finish mine up tomorrow. I did get the outside done today. The weather was amazing – warm and sunshine!
Life to the full,
