Metallic Woodland Christmas

Every year I inevitably add a little more to my stock of Christmas decorations and this year was no exception.  With stockings shipping out from West Elm - I finally have a fireplace! - along with a few new ornaments, I could hardly wait to start setting up shop, so I didn't!  This is by far the earliest I have ever pulled out the tree as I usually like to spend Thanksgiving day decorating, but something got into me this year and I just couldn't wait a minute longer.  

In preparation, I replaced a dead string of lights (sad face) on my pine cone garland with new ones, made some festive stenciled slip covers for a few throw pillows, crafted a couple of handmade clay ornaments with the help of the dogs, and even covered distracting artwork on the walls in gold and silver wrapping paper to fully turn my entire living room into a metallic woodland wonderland for Christmas this year.  

Feeling inspired?  Well, I hope so!  Why don't you hop on over to my Pinterest board created just for this occasion and please check out the gallery below as well.  Happy decorating!
