As many of you are aware, I am STILL looking for a job! I have a couple good leads and hope to find out something this week. However, money is still tight and my Christmas decor is sparse and OLD! So I have been trying to figure out how to spruce it up without spending a fortune!
While over at the blog, Savvy Seasons by Liz, I saw how she decorated a wreath using ornaments. Using that idea, I went to Dollar Tree and bought 4 packs of red and gold ball ornaments. I wasn't planning to make mine as full because that would have defeated the purpose of my staying on a budget!! However I grouped them in twos and tied them on in various spots. It went from looking like this sad and pitiful wreath
To this prettier wreath
It is so cloudy here today and supposed to have some snow flurries later. Here is a shot of it with a flash. Not as pretty then!!
I pulled out all the decorations I could find and now they are spread out in the living room. Since people are keeping it real, here you go! I had to move all the fall decor to the chair and end table in order to see where I needed something!
I really don't have enough to do much with but it is all piled over here. Guess I better read more blogs to get more ideas of budget friendly Christmas decorating!
I am going to finish my last patio door curtain panel and then give the big makeover of the kitchen. It is about done as far as it will get until after Christmas. I will link up with Kim's Boring to Better party tomorrow!
Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by my MESS!!!
