All of the decor from Fall Decor Scavenger Hunt Part 1 and Fall Decor Scavenger Hunt Part 2 has officially been transitioned to holiday decor! If you saw my transform your everyday decor into holiday decor post you might remember that there were still a few pieces that I hadn’t yet transitioned for holiday from Fall. Here they are.
On the bookshelf I swapped out the leaf bookmarks from Fall for this branch with beaded golden apples and pine cones (I got a package of 2 of these from Dollar Tree). I filled my hurricane with these adorable mini bulbs that look like Peppermints. The final step to transform the bookshelf into holiday decor was to add more clippings from the branches which I stuck in to the boxwood topiary below (I had Fall foliage in it prior). You also may notice that I painted the planter silver (which I’ll keep that way permanently) and wrapped metallic red ribbon around the top of the planter.
Remember my DIY Fall Wreath that I had transformed from my Spring wreath? Take 2. I have disassembled it again to update it for Christmas. I painted the “N” with a red metallic paint (this is this letter’s 3rd color) and doused it in red glitter between layers of Mod Podge. I added this evergreen branch with pine cones that I got at Joann a few years ago. I found these red glitter berries as well as the red twine glitter balls at Hobby Lobby this year (they have had 50% off Christmas decor for a couple of months now!) and hung 4 bells from metallic red and green ribbon. I switched the ribbon to hang the wreath (you can see how to create the ribbon wreath hanger here), and that’s it. 5 minute and 5 dollar transformation to Christmas wreath! I topped off my door decor with some “jingle bells” on the door handle.
Remember my porch urns that housed the big bejeweled pumpkins? To transition them to holiday decor I simply laid some greenery on top of the dirt that is in there from the summer, a few shatterproof ornaments and pine cones. The dusty miller and spike plants from the summer are still kicking!I liked how the dusty miller looked as a backdrop for the lush greenery. I left it in, we’ll see how much longer it lasts.
The house is officially Christmas-ified! We finished a little late this year but it was a little bit of an adventure finding the holiday decor in the basement since we hadn’t yet unpacked it! 😉
Did you transition any of your everyday decor this year into holiday decor? What are your favorite Christmas decorations?
Enjoy your weekend, the last before Christmas, I can’t believe it!
