Christmas Mud Room

Well, it’s the last day of November, so it’s about time we get into the Christmas swing of things, doncha think?

We had our first snowfall last night and everything is looking all perfect and Christmassy. We’re all just loving it around here.

I thought I’d start at the very beginning, a very good place to start, in the mudroom, where we usually enter the house.

I cheated a bunch in this room and reused a lot of the same elements as in my Fall mudroom. It made the whole thing really easy to do though, and Kennedy helped out a lot, which she loved.

I use this same wreath every year because it’s pretty much the greatest wreath ever. It was one of the decorations from my work a few years ago which I took home at the end of the season. How lucky am I?

We pinned up some dollar store garlands left over from last year and tied a little piece of red ribbon on our Mason Jar light.

This is my Spring wreath, which became my Fall wreath, which is now another Christmas wreath.

I kept my $7 lanterns and my stools from the Fall mud room and just filled them with various Christmas bits and bobs.

A dollar store Christmas tree, dollar store ribbon, and left over burlap and pine cones. You can see just a bit of the hand painted sign I made last year when I seemed to have a bit more time on my hands. 
How nice will it be when we have the wood floors one day?
Kennedy decorated under the windows with whatever she felt like from the Christmas boxes. 
Yup, that’s Dora!
I really haven’t bought much new this year at all in the way of Christmas decorations, but having a new (old) house to play around in has made all my leftover stuff from past years feel brand new. 
More Christmas fun to come soon!

    LOL! Love the Dora! :-) Everything truly looks so beautiful and the lanterns on the stools are a fantastic idea. That wreath is so fun and unique too and I studied it for a long time trying to figure out how I could make one of my own someday! Thanks so much for sharing this at the Doors and Porches party~
