Hello, A Blissful Nest readers! This is Linda, from burlap+blue, and I am thrilled to be guest posting here today sharing some of the holiday decor around my home. If you don’t know who I am, I write a home decor/DIY blog, burlap+blue, and I have an Etsy shop of the same name, where I create vintage-inspired goods for the home.
Let’s get right to it, shall we?
I was lucky to receive this metal, clippy-thing from my sister-in-law, and I just love how these vintage ornaments look hanging from it. I adore versatile home decor pieces, and this definitely fits the bill.
I talked about this simple felt wreath recently in this post. In short, it’s fun to make, easy to put together, and gives you a lot of bang for your decorating dollar-it looks bold and fresh against my black front door, but would look equally great hanging from a mirror, frame, or even leaning against wall. Love.
A few years ago, I made these mini chair swags out of faux pine, paper mache bells I found at HomeGoods, and some glitter leaves. Three years later, they still look great and add a festive touch to our dining room chairs. Added bonus? I got to justify (at least to myself), my mild obsession with ribbon collecting. I bought this red gingham ribbon having no idea what I’d use it for, and it suits these swags perfectly.
Random berry garland (this thing has been used everywhere over the years) and milk glass make for a simple, yet impactful, bookcase display. The white, green, and red are a classic color combo, but somehow manage to look fresh.
Thank you to Rebekah for inviting me to guest post here today, and thanks to all of YOU for letting me spend a few minutes sharing my home with you.
Have a MERRY Christmas!
