The Last of the Christmas Decorating (Switching up the Mantel)

Just like the pom pom wreath we made for our guest bedroom we made one for above our fireplace too. This one is a little bit smaller and has fewer pom poms but they are a little bit bigger and fluffier (I used a slightly more expensive yard on this one that had some wool in it). And then we moved the girls' stockings down here. We got them last year from Pottery Barn Kids. The little mercury glass lights are from World Market and the paperwhites are from Savvy Home and Garden. Adding this wreath and switching out the stockings helped lighten up the living room a little bit so I feel like it goes a little bit better with the kitchen part of the room and the snowballs we have on our hot cocoa station. And so with just a few days to spare the Christmas decorating is officially done - haha!

Our Gray Guest Bedroom With Some Simple Christmas Touches

Last Christmas I saw a few of these pom pom wreaths and thought they would be so much fun to make but because we were still knee deep in renovating the house last year I didn't bother to do any crafts so this fall the girls and I had fun doing some crafts for this Christmas like some faux snowballs (you can see those in our Christmas tour) and our advent calendar and making a bunch of pom poms. Then life got rather hectic and we just finally finished making the wreaths a couple of weeks ago. I was originally planning on doing a tutorial but it turns out these wreaths have been quite popular this year and I'm pretty sure there are already plenty of tutorials out there. You can find one here that looks really similar to ours. We made two. We put one in here and another one down on our mantel in our family room. Other than that we just added a few other simple winter touches in here.

The Girls' Christmas Bedroom

Well, Lillie and Lola's room has a mix of very bright pinks and soft ones too this Christmas. It probably would have been better to stick with one or the other but that's okay. We made some bright pink pom pom garlands and hung them in their doorway and on the dresser. They helped with these so some of them are shaped a little bit creatively. =) We have one of these pink deer heads in the playroom and one here. They were from Michael's and per the girls' request we spray painted them a bright sparkly pink.

Here's the little tree we got from Target last year. Everything is from Target last year except the little unicorn ornaments which were from World Market.

Then on this little dresser we added some jingle bells and the little house from HomeGoods and the little deer from World Market. We made the yarn trees a few years ago (and probably will need to make a few more next year because these ones are starting to unwind a bit thanks to lots of little hands playing with them). The bottle brush trees are from Target and we made the little print just for fun.

My mom made Lillie the little stocking for her first Christmas. The boa wreath is from HomeGoods (we have another one in the playroom), the little fur piece is from Joyfolie several years ago, the snow globe was a $1 find from an antique mall last year. The little tooth fairy doll was on clearance from Pottery Barn Kids.

We got these stockings last year from Pottery Barn Kids.

Here is the source list for the main items in the room:

Wall Color: Glass Slipper in a matte finish by Benjamin Moore
Trim Color: Simply White in a semi-gloss finish by Benjamin Moore
Rug: Pottery Barn Kids (during a sale this summer - I would have preferred the larger size but because of the price difference went with the smaller option)
Wallpaper: PiP Birds in Paradise in White  -  Ordered online from Decorate to Go - Was a bit of a splurge for us so that was why we only did one wall but we LOVE it!
Square and Bolster Pillows: I made using fabric and trim from Hancock Fabrics
Bedding: Pine Cone Hill - or at least I think (have had it for about eight years)
Vintage Chair and Desk: White Home Market several years ago 
Mirror: Pottery Barn (about seven or eight years ago)
Headboards: Target (about six years ago)
Large Pictures Frames: made using this tutorial here
Dresser: Craigslist
