Christmas Decor

As promised, here are some pictures of our Christmas decor. A couple of the pictures are from last year because I didn't re-take them this year and didn't realize it until I was putting pictures in the post.

Here's the sign on our front door:

I made this wreath last year. This is on the door to our yard/porch area

This is a picture from last year. These are still by the TV but there is no speaker or picture behind them because our speakers got stolen when our house got broken into :( Anyway, I also made these trees last year. I saw some I liked but they were about $40 each and I decided I could make them for cheaper, so I did.

Another picture from last year, just to give you the idea. Little Christmas tree with my bobble-head Santa next to him. Isn't he cute?!

One more pic from last year. We don't have a mantle, so I found this stocking holder to hang our stockings on. In the back of it, I stuck the Christmas cards we recevied on the extra "branches." It looks the same this year except we haven't gotten but one card so far so there's not much on it.

This is our little tree by the front door. It has the wedding ornaments Tim's mom got me last year, an "Our First Christmas" ornament, a pregnant mama ornament Tim's mom gave me this year, and few various other ones. The little snowman golfball ornament sitting next to the tree was a gift from my little sister, Caroline, to Tim last year.
In the kitchen in our apartment, above the cabinets. We've got a red and gold/poinsettia theme going on.
Willow Tree nativity scene. I got the thing they are sitting on (now I can't think of what it's called) for Christmas last year and the rest of the scene the year before. I just love it.

This is in the open space between the living room and the dining area. The glass vase thing is filled with gold and red miniature ornaments.
Centerpiece and placemats on the dining table.

And last, but not least, the tree! Like I said, we have a red and gold theme. We actually lost the star we had for the top of it so I put the poinsettias up there this year. I thought it went with the theme of the rest of the decor and Tim really liked it.

We have some old school big, colored Christmas lights around our fence in our yard but I couldn't figure out how to take a good picture of them.
Hope everyone has a good weekend!

Abby, I got the trees from Hobby Lobby - they are just made of some kind of cardboard material. Then, I bought packages of the balls (I got them at a place in Waco, but you can also get those at Hobby Lobby in a couple different colors) and then hot-glued the balls to the tree. You have to do them individually, so it's pretty time-consuming, but I thought it was kind of fun! And, it's not hard.
