You guys have been demanding and demanding more Christmas posts about DIY tree skirts and homemade Christmas decor. Goodness gracious everyone! Calm down it is still summer! But still, holiday sewing is starting to pick up as we all realize how many weeks are left until Christmas (from September, only 16 weeks!) and how much work we have to do to prepare. Normally, I’m against putting up Christmas decorations—including those pesky Christmas lights—before Thanksgiving, but homemade home decor is another story in general. These things take time to create. Most people think that sewing your own decor, homemade clothes, and DIY crafts in general are something that can just be whipped out last minute. But you know better. We know better.
I shouldn’t say that I’m entirely against putting up lights before Thanksgiving, since the weather is such a pesky element. As long as they aren’t turn on yet! We need to celebrate and appreciate your Thanksgiving Patterns before the next holiday. Preparing for Christmas is such a project in itself. Halloween crafts and Thanksgiving patterns can be quick to put together and even quicker to put away, but Christmas?
There are so many different themes and colors to choose from! How do you even begin to choose? Since moving out from my parents’ care, I’ve had a new appreciation for how much they actually took care of me and how much was actually provided (sounds cliche, but everyone goes through that feeling at some point). As long as I can remember, my family has always had an abundance of Christmas crafts and holiday decorations. Granted, a good majority was inherited from my late aunt who was an avid quilter, such as all of our homemade quilts and DIY tree skirt, so my mom didn’t have to get too involved in her decorations when my sisters and I were little. However, she is starting to redo her Christmas theme, and she is quickly finding out how pricey Christmas decorations can be.
Christmas is so big that I’m going to be doing a series of posts on the main parts of Christmas decorating. Today, is obviously tree skirts. I will be doing a little bit of every style on here just to make sure you guys know your options. I will always be torn between modern styles and colors, such as the blue/white combo, and a traditional bath of red.
