Pinecones, Pinterest & Procrastinating

Here is my version of the Pinecone Garland I found on Pinterest. If you haven't tried Pinterest, I highly recommend spending some time pinning and getting inspired. From fashion, to food to crafts, to home design you can find something to peak your interest.

I was looking for an alternative to spending $$$ on a live wreath for our front door this holiday season. Cedar wreaths are lovely and smell great, but I'm always trying to save a buck. I'm thrilled with my creation and elated that I had all the supplies in my crap room. I mean, craft room! I would have preferred the nice wide ribbon like the Pinterest Garland, but you do the best you can with what you have.

Here are all the supplies I used. It was so simple, so easy. E-600 is my go to glue. It holds everything! I put it all together while the kiddos watched The Polar Express. Nothing like a holiday movie and crafts to get you in the spirit of the season.

Well, the countdown has begun and Christmas is fast approaching. Are you procrastinating your shopping, decorating or perhaps deciding where the heck you are going to split your time with family? My heart beats a bit faster when I think about all there is to do. Last night after my t.v. time I sat in silence with only the Christmas tree lights on, pet my Jack Kitter sleeping peacefully on my lap and tried to put my anxiety of all there is ahead to rest.

Still on my list to do:

  • Hang the stockings

  • Finish Decorating the tree (but is it worth it when the girls take down almost every ornament leaving little piles around the house?)

  • Put out Nativity

  • Shopping

  • Menu Planning

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Here's to taking it slow and enjoying the season.
