I’m generally not much of a seasonal decorator. But there’s one time when I break every rule in the book… and that would be for Christmas.
But I break more rules than one…
First off, you’re about to be blown away with a little Christmas past. Maison de Pax has gathered us ’round to show you 100 fav Christmas projects with my 4.
How’s that for quick and fast inspiration?
So… rule breaking. Well, let’s start off by saying, I’ve long tossed out the traditional Christmas decorations. I now visit my everyday junk stash and visit outdoors for all the trimming.

I love shopping outdoors for Christmas. There’s just something so natural about utilizing what nature provides vs the mall.
This twig wreath can be yours while you watch two hours of Survivor. It’s charming, rustic, and all season too!

And stuff it inside a stepladder. Which made it brand new again.
I love a great candle glow, but get nervous with a rambunctious teen and hopping animals abound.
It only made sense to create a votive that wouldn’t move in an earthquake!
Stacking rusty gears is all this took. Plus, a battery operated tea light makes it even safer.
