The 12 Posts of Christmas!

Helloooo friends. πŸ™‚

It’s the most wonderful time of year. I know, you know. I’m one of those people. I don’t complain about the Christmas music in September, or the fact that that all of the stores basically skip right over Thanksgiving after Halloween. I would happily eat my turkey right next to a pretty tree. Ha!

SO in honor of my love for Christmas… {as since its the end of the semester, Β HALLELUJAH!} my friend Ronni {over at The Veronica Blog} and I are busting out our Santa hats and hot glue guns and actually attempting some of the DIYs that we have pinned all over our Christmas boards. {Girl, don’t even act like you ain’t got one. πŸ˜‰ } SO without further adieu I give you…

Christmas spirit hits hard around the Rinehart house. {Well, this Rinehart house. My in-laws bought a little fern and put some lights on it and called it their Christmas tree. lol! }

This year my go to decorating technique is… “just fill it with ornaments.” hahaha. Seriously though…it works.

I’ve come to terms with my lantern obsession. I have them in all shapes and sizes, in the bathroom, living room, and kitchen, they were even the centerpieces at my wedding. Ah well, at least they’re becoming pretty trendy so they’re easy to come by now. haha! {This lil’ guy is from Target, for $3!}

OR, just add a bow. Seriously though… have you ever tried to make a bow like that out of ribbon?! I handmade this guy^… it took me like 45 minutes and 4 youtube videos… Had me questioning me intelligence level people…


For our #12PostsofChristmas colab, we’re going to sharing holiday cheer, recipes, crafts, DIY, and whatever other cool stuff we come across! Broke, crafty mom style… because that’s how me and Ronni get down. LOL!

I started off with something super…easy…{don’t tell me it’s lame, I’m way more excited than I should be…}

Can I just start by saying… that Goodwill is officially my favorite craft store. hahaha. I mean, have you BEEN to a craft store? The prices could about make you fall over… since my Hobby Lobby and Goodwill are like 2 blocks apart, I always check Goodwill first these days… they usually don’t disappoint. πŸ™‚

Every year I have issues with this whole… no fire places/mantles in your average FL house thing… Like where DO YOU PEOPLE hang your stockings?! In previous years, I just hooked them on the well decor where ever I could… NOT THIS YEAR MY FRIENDS!!!! Mwahaha… πŸ˜›

I bought that GAWGEOUS little hen coat hanger for a whopping $2.99. Threw some red spray paint on that bia. Distressed the paint a little bit after it dried, because we all know that shabby – chic is all the rage right now…and BAM. Thrifty Stocking Hanger. πŸ™‚

THEN I couldn’t find any of our stockings to take a pretty picture for you! Except of course for me Nightmare Before Christmas one from when I was like 16. SO there you have it!… black and purple stocking… raining all over my red parade.

That’s right mommas… go find yourself something to spray paint. πŸ˜‰

Make sure you go check out Ronni on Facebook, her post coming soon on!!!
