Decorating My House for Christmas

Hey y'all!

Now that it is officially December, I am in full-swing Christmas mode! This past weekend, my roomamates and I put up some Christmas decorations, and it has made me so excited. We live in a rental and are college students, so our decor selection consisted mainly of a hodge-podge of random stuff we all had acquired, but I wanted to share a few of my favorite parts of our decorating.

First off, if you want something really easy and cheap to give a fun Christmas-y vibe, we found some scented pine cones, and some with glitter on them for really cheap at Walmart/Target. They make your house smell so good, we were all super obsessed with them. Not to mention they are pretty, too! 

One of my roommates made a DIY palette Christmas tree decoration, and I think its so cute! She is so crafty and fun, so of course I love all the things she makes. I think the DIY was pretty simple and you could probably find something similar on Pinterest. 

We also have a "hipster Santa pillow" on our couch along with some faux fur pillows and a faux fur blanket. I think faux fur makes everything look so chic and this Santa pillow is so cute! We are all avid coffee drinkers so it fits our motif perfectly :)

We also have a coffee mug organizer in our dining room which we switched out for some Christmas themed coffee mugs. Like I said earlier, we are all HUGE coffee drinkers, so we have endless amounts of mugs & we use them to decorate and make it more home-y. 

Lastly, I love our mantle -- we have a cute Christmas sign, some pretty gold bottles, and some garland laid across it. I love a good mantle decoration, and I think ours turned out pretty cute. I love the golds and sparkles!

I hope you all enjoyed this post! If you want to shop anything I mentioned, I will try to link some of the items down below or find similar ones. I am so excited for Christmas and also my birthday which is in less than three weeks now. This truly is the most wonderful time of the year!
