If you remember, we rocked out our DIY Fall Apothecary and our DIY Fall Wall Collage for the fall season. The issue has sense presented itself that we aren't in fall anymore and we need to merry our merry.
Let's start with everyone's the favorite- changing the apothecary!
First, I emptied all the apothecary guts into a zip lock and into the fall bucket for use next year.
I followed the same process as I did for fall (attack endcap at JoAnns, use wire cutters, place prettily in the thing) and ended up with this fantastic winter apothecary for under $10 (but if you have to buy the apothecary plan for about $18.)
Where did I put said apothecary? Well, naturally, it is still on the fireplace! Which has been very very merry-tized.
By the way, did all y'all know that 3M makes "decorator clips"? I knew they made the small, medium and large hooks, but these decorator clips have a clear background and clear 3M tape, are super duper small, and work perfectly for things like hanging shiny silver shit on your fireplace. And no, 3M did not email me and say, "Hey Emma, say this is good shit"- it just made me happy and I felt the need to spread the joy.
Also, 4 guesses about who gets the Batman stocking, complete with cape (and it's not me or the dogs.)
Add sassy stuff, and you have an instant winter mantle- but I feel like I might want to put a wreath up on the second mantle.
Then we gallop over to our stair well, take down our seasonal frames, add new winter themed scrapbook paper in for about $2 and BAM. Winter Seasonal Wall.
How fun is that? I love when projects from awhile ago can be repurposed to go with a new theme.
What inexpensive Holiday decorations do you have up? Does your family celebrate Christmas or do you celebrate another winter holiday? If you celebrate other holidays, how do you decorate your home?
