Cozy Rustic Christmas Home Tour 2016Cozy Rustic Christmas Home Tour 2016

I must say, today is a special day for me. Last year I decorated my mom’s whole house for Christmas. Some decorations were handmade, other she already got and some she bought so I could finish the ideas I had. This year I got to decorate my own place. How exciting is that? After a few years with such a hard time for me and my family I was so desiring this moment. Our home, our decor and our Christmas. Today I’m please to share with you our Cozy Rustic Christmas Home Tour 2016.

Cozy Rustic Christmas Home Tour 2016

Ok so, As I’ve mentioned on previous posts, I moved to a new country and I had to start from scratch. I couldn’t decorate every corner of my apartment as I would have loved to, so I focused on specific places like front door, entryway table and living room.

Maybe next year I can expand it to my office and even why not, my bedroom. Christmas is my favorite time of the year and I enjoy every second of it.

My decoration is not like huge or anything but it’s special because I made myself most ornaments and decoration elements. Some are already posted as tutorials so you can check them out. Others I’ll give tips of how I made them here and will post soon enough… hopefully.

It’s hard to believe, it’s already December. This year went by so fast. In some ways I’m thankful for that because lot’s of cycles are closing and I’m ready for new positive ones. I’m thankful for everything I’ve accomplished this year. I’ve learned so many positive things and I’m ready to let go of everything negative to embrace a pretty and productive new year!

So, wanna see my humble home? Hope so! My apartment is small, very old European style for sure. Not my favorite but it’s our home for now and most importantly it’s ours!

Let’s start you the Cozy Rustic Christmas Home Tour 2016

This is our front door.

I made the wreath out of a pool noodle and used a lot of burlap LOL. If you like it you can check it out HERE.

Then you have my entryway table.

Please mind my camera in the mirrors. The space is so small that I didn’t have much choices to take the photos.

I made a table runner with white burlap. Th easiest possible. Just folded the whole piece, sew 3 sides leaving a small opening, turned it inside out and closed the opening. Pressed it and straight to the table!

The vases were already in this apartment so I just filled them with branches and twigs with pinecones. Placed these two cute fellas on stairs. I love them and they were on sale so it’s a win.

Just like I made our rustic monogram ornaments, I made the word snow. The letters were already white so I just sanded each letter to distress them. Then I glued them together putting ones in front of others so they would stand by itself.

I bought these cute trees also on sale and I thought they would look so cute with the snow letters.

Also I got this wooden crate to have a place for the keys.

I had made that cute printable that says “Believe in the Magic of Christmas” so I framed it and placed it in the back. Like the Printable? Grab yours HERE. There are 4 designs to choose from.

The last but not least detail was the pompom garland. I so loved how the tree pompom garland turned out that I had to make one for my entryway table too. You can find the tutorial HERE.

Now The Living Room

I decorated the living room door {yes here living room is treated like any room with doors LOL}

I made a pretty Christmas garland using greenery, battery-powered lights, burlap ribbon, plaid ribbon, ornaments and those gorgeous bells!!!

I just prep the ribbons by twisting an eight inch piece of wire around the ribbon every 8-10 inches alternating plaid and burlap. Put the lights making sure that the battery case would end hidden among the branches. Then added all of the cute ornaments. In the middle I pout the largest bell and the the other two on each end of the garland.

Want to see what’s IN the living room?

    This looks like a cozy winter wonderland! You did a great job, can you please come to my house? LOL. I really love the pallet that you hung the stockings on! I would love to have my husband do that for us here since we don’t have a fire place to hang them.
