Yeah I missed out Day six, blogmas is more time consuming than I thought, but I’m back with day seven!
This Christmas has been the first year where I’ve gone all out and bought loads of Christmas decorations🎄
In the past I’ve been in student halls/houses and they all were so disgusting that I didn’t see the point in decorating them.
Finally I have a nice flat and I really wanted to make it Christmassy.
I’m not exactly swimming in money at the minute so all the decorations you’ll see are either home made or on a budget.
I’ve had my little Christmas tree for years, along with the decorations, but I did buy a few new ones.
These are from Marks and Spencer and they were on offer for three for two. I do love Marks and Spencer’s Christmas range but it can be a little expensive.
A place that does cheaper Christmas decorations is The Range. If you’ve never been, they sell everything. Literally. From there, I bought these:
From the left, a snowy Squirrel. I was trying to get woodland themed decorations this year so I ofcourse had to buy this.
This door hanger decoration is so simple but adds an extra festive touch and I believe it was only a £1.
I love the shape and colours of these lights and they were about £4.
I also bought this Ivy which I think was about £3.99 and then wound some lights in between it which were £2.00
In my living room I currently I have a big storage shelf thing and I tried to make that look as festive as I could.
I also found some snowflakes ,which I bought last year from Asda, and I threaded them through some string and hung them up.
On top of the shelves I put my squirrel, ivy, my vase (from Asda) and a house which I’m still in the process of painting.
I got the house from Paperchase for £3 and as you can probably see, it’s not going great so far.
And I also made a centre piece for my table.
And finally, I think this may be one of my favourite decorations. One of my back walls was so plain and boring, I wanted something big to decorate it with so I bought a backdrop.
That’s about it for decorations in my flat. I did also decorate my room which I shall share with you in another post.
Hope your all having a nice December so far
Bye for now
