I usually begin decorating the house for Christmas on the Saturday AFTER Thanksgiving.
But this year, since we weren’t spending Thanksgiving at home, I started decorating for Christmas on the Saturday BEFORE Thanksgiving.
Often, some of my favorite Christmas décor is something that I put together simply, inexpensively and spur of the moment.
This year it started with some cute little birds that I bought at Target for only $1 each.
I took a piece of driftwood that I had collected months ago on a beach trip and hammered some nails into it. I hung the birds on the nails, then rested the driftwood on two nails in the wall and that was it.
Then, as also often happens, after I let it be for a day or two, I had a better idea.
I removed the nails and put clear push pins in the nail holes, securing them with hot glue.
Then I took some teeny tiny sand dollars that I had collected long ago, and hot glued them onto the ends of the push pins, hung the birds back up and now I’m lovin’ it!
HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE!
