My simple Christmas decorating goals this Season was to update the Christmas stockings from bright red and green with simple neutral tones to add a softer look to the Livingroom and add some bulbs to the “New to me” Christmas tree from Goodwill.
Last year, I scored a flocked Christmas tree from the New Philadelphia Goodwill location and added some inexpensive flair.
If you're like me, let's look at pictures and read less. It was a gradual process finding items and this year I was able to add another 50 bulbs with thrift store finds.
Christmas tree had a brand new tag from Target on it.
Instead of worrying about a tree topper, I prefer adding picks towards the top to add more height to the tree (the more the merrier).
Small platters from the Dollar Tree to serve as a few large ornaments.
Goodwill find of Target ornaments and 50 additional bulbs added.
Large plastic snowflakes from the Dollar Tree to fill in some spaces.
Bottom tree base covered with an Isaac Mizrahi throw.
Fireplace Thrifted items: 6 Ivory and gray stockings, Large mesh tray and ornaments attached for Christmas tree, and Flocked garland
Thrifted stockings personalized with Target dollar spot letters and glitter clips.
My splurge items this year was a pair of oversized lanterns from Home Buys. They are Pottery Barn knock-offs. However, the oversized cones, decorative balls, and vase fillers are thrifted.
From our family to yours, We wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy thrifting.
