decorating



I got very crafty over the weekend and made this beautiful wreath using Smile and Wave's tutorial.  My friend Mary and I had a crafting date complete with Christmas tunes and hot chocolate!   We did a slight variation on the wreath using a 12" foam circle from Jo-Ann's ($5 each), mini metallic ornaments from the $1 bins at Target ($3 for 3 tubes), and tinsel I bought at Value Village ($2).  I'm really pleased with how it turned out and even happier that it cost me about $10 with the floral wire I used to tie the ornaments onto the wreath.
  

I've really enjoyed adding little details to our apartment to make it feel festive and cozy.  I don't have a large decorating budget, but even a little tinsel, a few stockings, and a couple of hand towels make the house feel a little more special in some of these dark December days.




What are some of your favorite holiday decorations?
