Christmas 2019 was one for the books! A Girl and Her Glitter was invited by an incredible group of ladies to do a “home tour” on instagram. Wow! Was it intimidating! What I figured was that I could bring something unique by adding palms to my decor since we live in Florida. We loved the results and so did all of you!
The entry way was where I wanted the feeling to start. By adding chicken wire with a staple gun the exterior of our home, I was able to add tree trimmings and dried palm frowns to the entrance.
Wouldn’t you know it? My church was getting rid of all their blue, gold and red decor. Anything I can not spend money on is a total win! Look at the size of the bulbs, perfection!
Going into our home, I wanted our guests to see their card when they arrived. Only, I wanted something completely different from past years. This metal mail box was found at my local michaels, I added chicken wire by creating a hook with the wire itself, and draped it to the floor. You can see we added in some additional trimmings and could easily attach the cards to the wire directly using scotch tape.
From the Merry Mail display to the drama of this dreamy table runner. Using, you guessed it, chicken wire, I laid out the runner and draped way past the end of the table. This time I added palms and left them green because there is no much going on in the space, I wanted it to blend and be a textural surprise.
We have a huge open space that I am using in 2020for my gallery wall. Christmas is a good time to start that project and we did so by adding a little Bethlehem theme. The “city” was built using cardboard boxes then were painted and added some lights to them. The palms ties this space in and the vinyl I was able to cut using my Circut Maker. This start was made from foam core and topped off is LED tape lights.
Lastly, the heart of the home. Using the same techinique as the entry way, we transformed our mantel into a dream.
Our tree decor details are all from reused items in our garage and those items from our church! You can see that I took three bulbs of different sheen and clustered them into groups of three. Topped… or should I say bottomed (?) it all off with a palm tree skirt!
Merry Christmas from our home to yours!
