Hello and welcome to the 2015 Holiday Home Tour Blog Hop! Myself as well as almost 30 other bloggers have joined together to present our Christmas decor to you. However before I send you on your way take a look of what I have been up to for Christmas so far…presenting Dream Design DIY’s Very Merry Christmas Display.
For this display and many of my displays I utilize my entry way console. We do have a fireplace mantel, however our TV and sound bar sit above it and on it. The hubs just doesn’t quite understand how important it is to have a mantel for the holidays. I mean do we really need that much sound when we watch TV? :-/ Anyhow the entry way console is where we land.
This year I made several different items to celebrate the holiday season. For the most part I usually start off with some sort of backdrop. In this case here I have a chalkboard paint covered wood backdrop with a galvanized Christmas tree cut out. This was my first galvanized project. I was able to age the Galvanized Christmas Tree by using vinegar. The Galvanized Christmas Tree is nailed to a chalkboard wood backdrop.The next project we come to is the Merry Christmas Banner. This was a simple little project using material, a stencil cut from Silhouette Cameo and paint. I love how it turned out and it looks so cute draped across the Galvanized Christmas Tree.On the bottom left is a snowflake made from scrap MDF board cut out with a jigsaw.
To the further left is a Joy Christmas Sign. I created the Joy Christmas Sign using scrap wood, stencil cut from Silhouette Cameo and acrylic paint. I sanded and aged it to get that roughed up look, it helps add character to the overall look.
To the farthest left is a chalkboard spray painted paper deer with a piece of jute tied around its neck.
To the right of the backdrop is a Christmas Silent Night Sign using scrap wood and a cut out from my Silhouette Cameo…are we noticing a trend here?
To the furthest right is a Snowy Mason Jar with some Christmas stems. For this simple project I used a mason jar and epsom salt. One last look at the whole display again. I hope you enjoyed seeing my Christmas projects for this year. Now that you have stopped in to my neck of the woods make sure to grab a glass of wine, or a cup of hot chocolate and sit back and enjoy the rest of the tour.
