Hope you all have had a wonderful weekend. We are doing well in Okinawa, we’ve had a few cooler evenings, it’s finally feeling like fall. Just got our last package mailed off, my Christmas shopping is almost complete, now I’m ready to enjoy the season.
This post is about choosing your Christmas decor. The options are endless, if you are looking to change it up a bit this year I have found a few options that are affordable DIY projects. Other than traditional red and green, gold would be my choice for Christmas decor. The gold tones will go well with any color home decor and has a bit more of a formal look. With all the wonderful metallic paints available this look is easy to accomplish. No worries if you’ve already got your Christmas decor up for the season, plan ahead for next year, hit the after Christmas sales and stock up on all things gold. Check out a few of the lovely trees and DIY projects below for a little inspiration.
