Welcome to our last week of the Deck the Home Blog Hop! If you missed the first 4 weeks you can find all the previous weeks DIY Christmas projects below:
Week 1: DIY Christmas Door Decor
Week 2: DIY Christmas Wood Project
Week 4: DIY Coasters: A Great Gift Idea
For this last week I will be taking you on a farmhouse Christmas tour! I finally got all the Christmas decor dragged in this last week and now that it is all displayed I wanted to take you on a tour of our decorated living room and dining room.
I haven’t bought many new items for Christmas decorating this year as I have a fair amount already so I pulled out every tote, opened all the lids and dug in. I like to change up the decor every year but placing the decor if different spots each time.
This post is a little more picture heavy than most but I did provide links at the end for the sources of some of the products if you are interested.
1905 Farmhouse Christmas Tour 2018
After I recently painted the hutch with Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint I loved the look of my milk glass collection. And by adding some red berry stems it added some simple Christmas color.
Also the boxes displayed on top of the hutch are just empty boxes wrapped in kraft paper from Dollar Tree with strips of ripped Christmas fabric made into ribbon.
These red and white ticking ornament balls are from SoyoandRoo and are a perfect addition to my farmhouse Christmas decor. And she is local to me here in Oregon which I love! These fabric wrapped candy canes displayed below are also from Michelle at SoyoandRoo!
For the coffee table centerpiece, I found one of the several fake little trees I had and added it with some faux snow, pinecones, and “snow globes” that the kids made a couple of years ago. And the lambs ear that I keep for year-round decor adds a nice natural touch to the vignette.
Onto the main event in the room: the Christmas tree! We get a real tree every year from a local farm. This tree is called a “Grand fir” and I love it displayed on the Christmas tree platform we built.
The kids love to decorate the tree each year with their ornaments they have been gifted and of course, the handmade ones are always a favorite. But I also wanted to do a themed tree this year so I bought a pencil tree from Michaels that I have decorated in a “garden theme”! I will have a full close up of that tree next week but for now, here is a shot of it sitting in our dining room.
The console table in the dining room also received some holiday decor, I don’t know if I love it yet as I feel it is missing something but I will live with this for now and add more if I find that right piece!
My Aunt had given me a box of random wreath supplies a couple years ago and while digging through it I found several of these vintage Santa picks that were used in wreaths. So I stuck these through this faux tabletop tree that I found at Goodwill earlier this year and added some yarn pom-pom garland that I had picked up on Christmas clearance and now it makes a great addition to the top of the console table!
And lastly I displayed this red truck string art that I just picked up at a bazaar yesterday made by a local mom. And this handmade wooden church window that I picked up at the Great Junk Hunt that I went to earlier this Fall with some vintage bells I found in my Grandma’s old Christmas decor.
I hope you enjoyed this farmhouse Christmas tour! I would love to know, do you add new items to your Christmas decor each year or do you repurpose what you have and move it around year to year? Let me know in the comments below!
