Admittedly these photos are not that much better, but here you go. Here's our little sparse Christmas tree!
This is a close up of my favorite part of the mantel. I'm honestly not happy with how the rest of it turned out because I had to throw it together in under ten minutes. Oh well!
We did pretty good for decorating this year on a strict budget. Those two rolls of ribbon and the red glass ornaments on the tree are from the thrift store. I probably paid under a dollar for all of it. I also did a lot of couponing from Hobby Lobby and some basic knitting. The red garland on the tree is a knitted project; it took me three days and it stretches across the house. There are a few more projects I'd like to complete but obviously time is ticking!
