Welp, it’s begun. I’m officially decorating for Christmas. It’s not that early anymore, right?
I typically don’t really get into decorating much, especially for the seasons. It’s just a lot of work, and I don’t feel very confident in my abilities when it comes to picking out decor and putting things out. Although I do think I’ve been getting better. And then by the time I get a room looking close to the way I want it, it seems like it’s time already to switch everything out. It’s a learning process for sure.
I even said earlier this year that I was thinking of not even decorating for Christmas. We spend most of the holiday season away from home anyway!
But then something exciting happened. In a couple of weeks, I will be teaming up with a group of bloggers to share some Christmas inspiration! So that got my wheels turning, and now I’m all sorts of excited and inspired about decorating for Christmas and I’ve gone full Buddy the Elf over here.
When I first started to think about Christmas decorating, I had visions of white and silver and gold, and a beautiful and elegant wintery theme. Then, as I started to get some items together, I found myself drawn toward red and white with a lot of natural elements. Sometimes it just works like that, I guess!
I put together this Christmas printable to stick in an 8×10 frame and have been having tons of fun moving it to different spots around the house. I guess I never realized the huge difference that a simple piece of framed art could make! I try not to buy a lot of art or signs to put up around the house, because I have commitment issues and worry that I’ll end up not liking it. Especially with something centered around a holiday, it won’t get much use, you know? But with something so simple as a free printable, you can’t really go wrong!
Merry and Bright FREE Christmas Printable
I made this in a few different color combinations, but I’ve got the all-red version up in my house.
To download the printable, simply click on the image to be taken to a full-size version. You can then save to your computer and print it right at home. Trim the margins, pop it into a frame or even a clipboard, and voila!
Have you started decorating for the holidays? I usually wait until after Thanksgiving, but I’m kind of liking the idea of getting an earlier start this year and being able to enjoy the season a little longer! 🙂 Stay tuned for more updates as I continue to DIY my way through my Christmas decor!
