DIY-Eucalyptus-garland2

I told you I have Christmas on the brain. It should be Thanksgiving. I know. But, I don’t have any decorations for it. Food, yes. Family, yes. Grateful heart, yes. Honestly, I never go crazy with Christmas decorations, either. At least, I haven’t the past few years. My tree is kind of hodge podge and I’m quite happy with that. But, I do like adding little this and thats. Maybe a little something I throw in the cart at Target (I know you do it too!) or something we make at home. I’m totally not a DIY queen or super crafty (a few I can handle here). I love the simple ones best and I thought I’d share a few that have been catching my eye.

First, the Eucalyptus Garland (above) by Home Oh My!  Pretty anytime of year, but would be so lovely around a door frame or dressing up windows or just a wall, as shown here.  I love eucalyptus!

If you don’t have a room for a tree or just want another tree in your home, this hanging tree (via Planete Deco) made from tranches, twine and a few sprigs of pine or evergreen would be perfect.  You even, probably, have everything you need on hand to make this!  If love color you could hang a few ornaments to jazz it up.

Lastly, I’m la la loving these DIY wooden tassel ornaments as seen on the Holiday Collective.  They would be so pretty covering a tree, and also a perfect gift to give (maybe to teachers?).  Drill, paint, and tassels (I’ve got experience with those).  Easy!

Well, I’m off to Target.  I’m taking self-control with me, because they have some really cute things this year.  Like, if I was to fill up my cart, it would be with . . .
