Walmart definitely hit it out of the park when it comes to their 2020 Christmas goods! I wanted to share a sneak peek of some of my favorite items I spotted the other day when I was there. You better bet I stocked up on lots of these and more than likely be going back for more!
First off, I’m gonna start with their holiday ribbon! So stinkin’ cute you guys! My new favorite is definitely the sage green!
If you are a fan of gnomes, Walmart has got the cutest ones! I wanted to buy them all!
There are seriously so many different styles of decor so your sure to find the one that fits you best! Its so exciting to see the different color schemes and styles from year to year.
I’m a sucker for some cute greens. They have cutest wreaths, swags, and little decorative trees. These go great with any Christmas/Winter decor.
These mini ornaments make the cutest little embellishments on any project so I always stock up on these! Also, if your kiddos like to have their own mini tree in their bedroom these work perfectly for that as well.
Is this not the cutest little tree stand/collar for a little mini tree!
These cute little Christmas picks were calling my name! I like to use these as fillers in my tree and use them a lot as embellishments on projects also.
As always they have a ton of gift bags to choose from. Not only to I use these for gifts but I also craft with these a lot! In my eyes you can never have to many. A cute gift bag and some mod podge can do wonders. HaHa
I hope you enjoyed this little sneak peek and find some inspiration for the holiday season.
*Apple Barrel Paint-I mixed Kelley Green and White
For those of you who love to decorate your porch for the holidays…you can never have too much porch decor can you? I absolutely LOVE how this porch sign turned out!
The board I used for this project came from Menards. It was a 10 ft. board that we cut in half to get two 5ft. boards. Once my board was cut to my desired length I then painted it. I mixed “Kelley Green” and “White” Apple Barrel paint together to get a sage green color.
While my board was drying I began tracing my letters and using mod podge to adhere my scrapbook paper and wrapping paper to my letters. The scrapbook paper I used came from Hobby Lobby and the teal plaid is Pioneer Woman wrapping paper that I got at Wal-mart. Both worked great for this project.
Once I had my paper mod podged on the letters I also went over the top of the paper again to seal the letters.
Once my board and letters were dry I used E6000 to adhere the letters to my board. If you plan to use this sign inside you could also use hot glue for this step. You will want to be sure and let your E6000 set up for the recommended time to ensure your letters stay put.
I used my staple gun to wrap some jute twine around the top and bottom of my sign and added a cute home made bow to the top and voila! Stinkin’ cute, right? So excited to add this to my porch! If you wanted to spruce it up even more it would be super cute to add some lights around it.
If you plan to put your sign outside you will want to spray it with a clear coat to seal it from the weather!
Every year when we get our live Christmas tree I make a holiday porch pot for my deck. As I was starting to make mine this year it dawned on me that I should do a blog post on how to make your own pot instead of spending $20-$50 on buying one! So, I am doing just that.
Like I said, each year we get a live tree so I just use the branches we cut off of our tree to make my porch pot. Now, if you don’t get a live tree don’t worry. You can buy bundles of live tree branches at certain stores. I have seen these at Menards or any place that sells live trees.
I like to start off my sticking my bigger, taller branches towards the back of my pot. I then fill in all of the bare areas with my remaining branches, saving the shortest pieces for the front of my pot.
I know it doesn’t look very pretty just yet but once you start adding in your picks it will all start coming together! I like to use several different sizes and styles of picks. I found mine at Hobby Lobby and Menards. These work great as fillers so don’t be afraid to use several to make your pot look fuller.
Once I had all of my picks stuck in where I wanted them I decided my pot needed a bow. I simply took a bow that I had on hand and used the the twisty tie on the back of the bow to secure it to one of my pine cone picks and stuck it in the front of my pot.
Can you believe what a difference adding the picks can make? I used some flocked branch picks to add some dimension to my pot but if you can’t find them you could just lightly spray over your branches with the fake snow spray that you can buy almost anywhere in the Christmas section.
I also like to add a solar light or two to my porch pot to light it up during the night time. I found this cute solar light at Menards last year and love how it looks!
The first thing I did was stain my board. I used the color “Antique Walnut” by Minwax for my sign. I then sat that aside and painted my letters red with my “Bright Red” Apple Barrel paint.
Once all of my pieces were dry I then hot glued glued them on my sign.
Now, it’s adorable just the way it is but I just bought some super cute Christmas ribbon so of course I had to add a bow! All of my supplies for this project came from Hobby Lobby except for the paint and stain which I already had on hand, so it’s a one stop shop kind of project!
Let me know what you all think! Will you be making one?
I did this craft live on my Facebook page and thought it was to cute not to put on the blog! So, just in cased you missed it live you can see it here!
Isn’t this just the cutest? I know a lot of people don’t like to decorate with the traditional reds and greens for Christmas so I thought this would be great for those who prefer the more rustic, farmhouse look!
