I wanted to decorate the cabin last year, but without having the heat installed, it seemed unlikely that we would actually go there in December. This year we have heat which means I will definitely be spending time there, so I added just a few things to put us in the holiday mood.
I made garlands out of pompons (Target $1 bin) and by stringing drinking straws and plastic beads (Hobby Lobby).
Next, I wrapped lights around a metal cone that I have been moving around for a few years waiting for an idea of how to use it to hit me. I placed the cone on a log that I dragged in from the woods. Because we are not here all the time and our space is tiny, it has made the perfect tree.
I kind of think that Donna at Funky Junk would be proud of me.
I am really hoping to add some decorations to the outside next week when we come to cut down our Christmas tree. Last year we enjoyed a little bit of snow when we went, and I am praying for a little this year also.
I would love to decorate a bike--if I could find an old one--and put it outside.
I would also like to add a few decorations to the camper which is now right outside the back door.
Hopefully, I will be posting some more cabin photos next week! In the meantime, I have some more garland to make. You should go make some, too! Kids love it, and it's easy-peasy!
