Christmas has come early this year for us. For the past month or so, I have been gathering some Christmas DIY decorating ideas for our tree. I was contacted by Home Depot during the summer inquiring if I would like to be a part of their “holiday design challenge”. Gee, I don’t know. Of course! About a month ago, a gorgeous pre-lite tree and boxes of Christmas tree decorations arrived. I normally don’t start thinking about Christmas until right before Thanksgiving but this year I started at the end of summer. My grandfather said to me last week once the tree was up, “what the heck are you doing and why are you putting up a christmas tree?” I laughed and told him it was for a Home Depot blog post and he proceeded to tell my gram that I was crazy. He still doesn’t understand what a blog is but he is starting to realize that our address is a regular stop for the fedex truck. He wants to know when he starts getting free stuff .
This weekend I started decorating our tree and thought I would share some of Christmas treats that I have gathered over the course of a few weeks with you!
This tree is absolutely perfect. How about spray painting or adding glitter to some wooden or foam letters?
Glass ornament bulbs strung together would add such a gorgeous pop of color to any tree.
As a kid we always had tinsel on our tree but as I got older, my mom switched to festive colored ribbon. I love how this tree has the ribbon cascading from the top.
