We are so excited to spend this season with our new little addition to the family! Last Christmas we got our tree from Carter’s in Miller Place. It’s right around the corner from where we live and I actually took my first steps there when I was little. A great experience if you live on Long Island and haven’t gotten your tree yet!
I love this general store right outside the tree farm! Would love to have a store in there one day!
This is a really fun and easy project that I did in the Fall but wanted to make a Christmas version.
Once the green paint dried I used white acrylic paint and a stencil for the words and holy berries. Tip – the stenciling can be a little tricky so I use a foam brush like the one here in this post.
Every year we struggle with where we should hang our stockings. Unfortunately, in this house we don’t have a fireplace. This year we decided to hang them over the sliding door with a banner that I made out of burlap, scrapbook paper, and twine.
This has to be one of the easiest things to make. Michael’s sells the burlap rectangles (already cut) in the scrapbooking section. I bought the clothespins and scrapbook paper separately. I also used the same paint, stencil, and brush as I did with the Silent Night sign above.
Some more fun with bells…
We bought a bigger tree this year and I needed some extra ornaments. I had almost an entire container of bells leftover so I figured out a way to use them again. I used the leftover twine from the banner and hung them on our tree!
