Today I’m sharing how I decorated our family room fireplace for the holidays.
Every year I use fresh garland and hate dealing with the dried needles so I decided to end my pain and get some faux garland this year.
I bought 2 strands of this garland from Hobby Lobby. It’s thick and full of different types of greenery. Although it was 50% off it was still pretty pricey at $40. I decided to go for it since I can use it year after year. I still added sprigs of red berries to add some color.
Normally, I try not to buy any Christmas decor until after Christmas but I stopped into Kirklands and couldn’t pass up the deal on these two lanterns. They were on sale for $18 each AND they came with the battery operated candles! I’ve had my eye on the lanterns from Pottery Barn which are very similar to these and there’s no way I could’ve bought two of theirs for the price I paid for these two and candles, well, you can forget that.
I have several sheepskins throughout the house and this one I have on the hearth I’ve had since my oldest was an infant. Here’s 23 years old now and I’d say I got my cost per use on this one! ha ha
If you remember my fireplace from last year, you’ll remember this elk print. I wanted a big picture for the fireplace during the winter and didn’t want to break the bank. I found a canvas print (painted with pink cactus) at Goodwill for $24 and had my friend Stephanie paint this elk on it. It makes a pretty big statement on the fireplace and I love it! You can see more of the Elk print HERE.
Here in Phoenix, it’s been nearly 80 degrees every day since forever and there’s no way we can use the fireplace but at least it looks pretty and festive!
Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by my blog,
‘till next time, Lisa
