… there are so many good ones to chose from!
Since we live in a small house, I try to keep the Christmas decor on the simple(r) side and this year – instead of adding to the decor in our cozy (isn’t that a nice way to describe it?) living room – I swapped out frames on our picture shelves for free holiday printables I found on Pinterest.
There are many talented bloggers out there willing to share their work – much needed considering my lack of design skills – and here the prints I’m loving:
- The “Be Merry” wreath
- Have a Holly Jolly Christmas
- It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year
- Joy to the World
To add a few additional decor elements, I got the big sparkly, twine star and red lantern from Pier 1.
I finally got around to ordering stockings, but since we lack a fireplace and/or mantle, the shelves are acting as a faux mantle of sorts. They’re versatile I tell you! To hang the stockings, all we used were extra ornament hooks. Easy as that. Now obviously, they won’t hold the stockings when Santa stuffs them ;), but I think he’ll know what to do.
And because it was hard to narrow down which prints I wanted to use, here’s a few other favorites I found floating around the internet:
- If the chalkboard look is for you, these are very cute
- Simple, but elegant
- Cute and quirky
- And, for the art deco lovers in the bunch
I can’t decide if I’ll change these out each Christmas, but I do know that Jeff would like me to stop asking him for his opinion and then not take it. Marriage, am I right? 🙂
