I'm a constant tweaker. I am always changing things up in my home, tweaking, moving, painting...Well it should come as no surprise that I do the same thing when Christmas rolls around. It's never really done. I just move things around and add things. Well a few weeks ago we had some dreary weather and I got cabin fever so I added a few more holiday touches. They were easy and free!
I started with this chalkboard in my kitchen. I wanted something festive, but it was already the middle of December so my advent idea wasn't going to make the cut. I settled on a chalkboard tree after seeing this free printable. I used the printable as a guide and roughly sketched something similar to create my tree. Once the tree was done it needed a little oomph. I thought about adding some twinkling lights, but sadly there's no outlet nearby. So I turned to the next best thing, glitter. I actually used this glitter wrapping paper from Walmart ($4 a roll) to make my ornaments. It's a great deal and I can think of so many things to use it for. I might check back after Christmas and grab a few rolls when it goes on sale. Although $4 isn't really going to break the bank.
Anyways, back to the ornaments. I used my silhouette to cut out the circles, stars, and the topper. You could easily do this with a circle or star punch from any craft store or just good old scissors. Then I taped my shapes to the wall.
The white card stock background looked a little boring so I drew some random black circles on it with a sharpie.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
