This year I tried a little harder to make the flat a bit more festive. We already had our tree, but have had to put it on a table this year to protect it from tiny little teeth! Other than that I have crafted a few homemade bits and pieces to snazz up the place.
Here are some photos.
[From top to bottom - Our glittery star // My little wall decoration I made from twisted white and red wool, candy canes and tartan ribbon // An old school Mickey tree decoration from when I was little // Candles and another home made item - glass jar with lights and bits inside // The robin that Jake picked as our 2012 mascot // Unfortunately none of my fancy wrapping (ill hopefully show you next year!) this year as we cant afford to give gifts, but a few very kind presents from my parents // Our sea shell and beach glass collection all lit up // Some of the other things hanging out on our tree // Hand sewn stocking! There are three, but with being busy with work I've only managed to complete one so far. // Close up of my personalized snow globe hanger! // Card display.
I'd love to live in a house and be able to go all out with a huge real tree, a wreath on the door and all that jazz but for now this will have to do when living on a budget. Maybe one day. What are your decorations like? Do you have just the basics or the whole sha-bang? I'd love to see your photos.
