Welcome to Country Christmas

60 Days and counting

Wow, this year has zoomed by and so I know Christmas will be here before we know it!

What are you doing to get ready? 

Lots of people are talking about getting organized and planners, so with us all on board to get ourselves organized so that we can have a joyous, carefree season, thought I would share some budget friendly decorating/crafting  ideas.


Dress Up your child’s toy barn

Turn even the most prosaic scene into a farmwinter wonderland.
A couple of smart touches — mini wreaths, coconut-flake "snow" — bring Christmas cheer to a nostalgic toy barnyard. 

Spin yarn into a wreath with pop appeal. {I think this is so adorable}

Farm Chicks
To craft this door wreath, wrap Styrofoam balls (in various sizes) and a Styrofoam wreath form with colored yarn. Then use a glue gun to affix the balls onto the form. I also think this would be pretty as a table centerpiece with a hurricane lantern in the center nestled around a big chunky candle.


Create  your own Winter Wonderland

Transform a ready-made, unadorned card-stock village by customizing the buildings with wrapping paper. Finish off the scene with tinsel wreaths, tabletop trees, and toy deer, sprinkled under a soft blanket of snow.
