Felt Ornaments, Holiday Decor Steals and A Nursery DIY

It's the most wonderful time of the year!...well close, anyway.  I usually wait until after Thanksgiving to start decorating the house for Christmas, but this year I already have the itch.  Maybe it's because I have more time this year (last year we had a brand new baby that took all of our attention and I was lucky to have any decorations up).   Or possibly it's because we won't be spending Thanksgiving at our home, so I'm all "Out the pumpkins, in with the pine!"  Having a little one to enjoy all of the lights and sparkle is a incentive too...although it might make decorating a challenge with her little hands wanting to touch/pull on everything.  Whatever the case may be, I'm ready for holly!

I was looking at Crate & Barrel's holiday outlet sale online the other day and found some really cute ornaments for really cheap... and y'all know I love a good deal!  Specifically they had a good bit of felt ornaments (great for kids!) on sale.  Felt ornaments are great for many reasons:

  • Family tree decor- With these you don't need a bare bottom tree in worry that the kids will break something
  • Mini trees in your kids' rooms- Again with them not being fragile, the kids can even play with them and even decorate the tree themselves 
  • Gift wrapping- Finish off that cute wrapping job with a keepsake.  Some of these are cheaper than the cost of a bow!
  • Nursery decor- Before you call me crazy, let me explain.  How many of you have seen really cute felt/wool mobiles on Etsy that you loved but didn't like their price tag?  Well with a simple embroidery hoop or dowels, string/twine and ornaments, you can make your own!

Here are a few felt ornament favorites as well as some other great steals I had to share!
