Don’t look down on me, but I decorated for Christmas ten days ago. I’ve never been a huge fan of the Thanksgiving holiday, not because I’m ungrateful, but because it reminds me of thick turtleneck sweaters and stiff khaki pants. I’m weird, I know. But that’s why.
It also made more sense to me that since Ian was going to be gone over Thanksgiving and I would be visiting home for the week, we could enjoy it for the week prior!
The other good thing about decorating early is that I get to share my projects with you before you decorate! Who knows, it just might inspire you to do some holiday crafting : )
My first project to share is my snowflake doily project! I bought three packs of crocheted lace doilies from the Dollar Tree; two white and one tan.
Then I snipped a pretty lace ribbon the length of our mantle and tied a corner of each doily to the ribbon.
I was sad to see the snowflakes looking extra droopy when I hung the strand to the mantle, so I had to untie and redo the same process but instead of tying just one corner, I tied two. Now they look more like snowflakes, don’tcha think?
If I were to do this project over, I would recommend maybe using smaller doilies, but I am pretty happy with the way this turned out—for only $4!
