Christmas House Tour from Burlap and Denim

We are in the thick of the Christmas season!  Today I’m welcoming you to my home for a Christmas house tour.  Beware, heavy photos ahead!

Here is my family room.  I have an artificial tree that I love to decorate (read my tips HERE).  I brought out my deer from last year and hung it above my fireplace on a pallet again (see last years version HERE).  I love the burlap circle hanging down on my mantle.  That was a purchase I made this year while I was in England.  They have H&M Home in a few of their London shops.  They were just pulling out their Christmas decor during my trip, so I loaded up!

Burlap and Denim Christmas Open House

I hung a feather wreath and Merry Christmas sign over my antique mirrored door (door tutorial HERE).  The large cast angel was a find from Ross years ago.  She is one of my Christmas faves.     Angel and Christmas Door

 This year I dressed up my open shelving with a few Christmas accessories (read about my DIY open shelving HERE). Burlap and Denim Open Shelving for Christmas

These tea towels are also from H and M.  I tacked them up with thumb tacks near the kitchen.

This little plastic nativity is perfect for kids to carry and play with.  I found it at a thrift shop for $3 and painted it champaigne to match my decor.  Champaigne Nativity

 The photos of these stamps framed in an old antique window is my favorite project of the year (read the tutorial HERE). Window Pane Christmas Stamps

And close by is my vintage costume jewelry Christmas tree (read about it HERE).

 Since my advent calendar boxes also have my grandmother’s antique jewelry attached to them, we stacked the opened boxes on one side of a table and the ones unopened in a clear glass vase on the other (to learn about my advent calendar click HERE). Kraft Box Advent Calendar

I put my light up marquee star in my living room facing the front of the house so that passers by can see it shine (read about the star in one of my favorite tutorials HERE Light Up Christmas Marquee Star

These tiny faux snowglobes sit by the front door (easy tutorial with sugar snow HERE).  Mini Christmas Snow Globe Jars

I love to keep my presents up above the front door on a plant shelf.  This way there is no peeking and I love having festive fun wrapping paper to match my Christmas decor.  This year I hung the stockings above the door too.   Christmas Presents Tucked Above the Front Door

 I used to have these light up balls over my bar, but I love the glow up in my plant shelf. Subtle Christmas Plant Shelf with Light Up Rattan Balls

 I hit the jack pot a couple of summers ago when I found these vintage nesting Santas.  Aren’t they adorable? Vintage Christmas Nesting Santas

I could hardly contain myself with these pillow shams from H&M.  The heavy burlap one with “I’m Wishing for a White  Christmas for all” was only $4.50.  I absolutely adore it.

 And for Christmas breakfast, I set up a fun festive and cheery table of red and white. Christmas Morning Red and White Breakfast Tablescape

Merry Christmas!
