Welcome to the Christmas Home Tour 2015, as part of the Christmas Link Up series in which more than 30 bloggers are involved.
This Home Tour is part of our Christmas Link Up series
This is the second week and we’ll be opening our doors at the Home Tour 2015. I remember before being a blogger I loved to peep into other blogger houses to see what they had in their homes… I still love to do it, and it’s fun today it’s my turn.
Having said this, I want to welcome you all to our home! Grab a cuf of tea, take a seat and feel yourself home 🙂
We leave in a flat and this means that we don’t have too much room to leave things outdoors, but this DIY wreath is a must on Christmas. If you want to check how we made it you can have a look at this post.
Next to it this year we placed the bauble tree which adds a splash of color to the entrance.
In our little foyer we have these Santa’s hats made of paper. This is fun craft to do with kids, and I like how it looks. These last two weeks has been crazy busy and I still want to replace the orchid inside the vase by some branches, giving our entrance a more wintery look.
We added some rhinestones for a shinier look.
There’s a corner on my living room which I love, I call it the sparkling corner and you can read how I did it and the whole story here.
I placed three stars between the pictures, and I like them so much I’m thinking about leaving them there after Christmas. We made the little trees with papier mache and then wrapped them with yarn and placed them into a muffin mold. Another kid craft that looks cute. You can see as well hanging from the wall some numbers; they are part of our advent calendar.
The stars are made of fine cardboard and spray painted. I love the texture the middle one has as it seems rusty metal.
The other two were made using the printed side of a cereal box, that’s why they have a more shiny look.
Our advent calendar, the clothespins hold each day’s treats for each kid.
I’m sure you already must have seen our tree which I showed right here.
These ornaments are made out of toilet paper rolls, it’s so versatile! You can make plenty of things with it!
We also filled a hurricane vase with some pinecones, there are lots of them around here.
I added a tray as a request from my husband, he says it’s easier to move just one thing than lots of them so I placed the books and the hurricane vase on it.
Our cardboard village is behind the sofa this year.
And there’s also room for the magazine tree. The picture was an ugly one so I painted it and added some fabric with the words “Home Sweet Home”. If you want to know how you can transfer into fabric in less than five minutes you can check this tutorial here.
If you’ve read my bauble tree post you may remember we have tons of ornaments and baubles… Some of them are here right now. The little table was a curbside find, can you believe it?
And here along with more pinecones.
We also have a big nativity in the craft room. It’s a dynamic one, though; each time I look at it most of the pieces have been moved.
I know, it’s so difficult to resist playing with them and the sand!
Before leaving, remember to stop by others blogs and be inspired! These ladies are sharing their beautiful houses and you can get a lot of ideas from them.
Last week the theme was Christmas Trees and An Oregon Cottage shared some lovely Christmas decorations, and a paper wreath to die for.
