I try to have most of my Christmas decorating done by Thanksgiving so I'm not so rushed during the holidays. This year I am running way behind.....way.... way behind!
Some of the reason I am running behind is because a lot of the decor you will see me use this year is homemade.....by me!
My tree by the fireplace is decorated very simply with the rag balls that I made using left over fabric from my stashes.
Rag balls are easy to make..... just hot glue strips of fabric onto plastic or foam balls........
Some of the balls have strips of the same fabric on them.....
I used whatever fabric I had on hand......just keeping it in the same color scheme
The ball you see in the middle is a foam ball that I pressed small pieces of fabric into with a butter knife.
I embellished some of my balls with pink rose trim that I had left over from a project last Christmas.
I also have been making pink pom pom's to use in my Christmas decorating.
There is a tiered stand in the corner of the fireplace that I will put more of my Christmas decor on. Maybe some Santa figurines......
If you look close (in the right top corner) you can get a sneak peek of what I am creating on the fireplace.
