First things first - I don't go all out for really any holiday, at least not when it comes to decorating. Post-Thanksgiving and pre-Christmas is really the only time I decorate even a little bit. I think that once I have a home and more room to store said decorations, it may be a totally different story but in the meantime, here is what the apartment looks like right now.
Please ignore my reflection in the TV :)
Glad we have this tree skirt that was handmade and gifted to us. Tree skirts are absurdly expensive. That side, I'd like to create my own sometime, using either all white yarn or maybe some shade of green. The red here just stands out a bit too much. But I am glad we have this one for now.
The ornament above is actually one that I made last year. Take a look at the DIY tutorial for more info.
The glasses above were $3 total. Yes, $3 for both glasses. While they are from Target (so everyone will soon have them) and are not dishwasher friendly, I love adding in inexpensive changes like these during the holidays to make it feel a little bit more special and more cozy.
Have a great Monday!
