Free Printable Burlap Set for Christmas!


Gorgeous Free Printable Burlap Set for Christmas!

Each year, I am trying to become more and more organised for every holiday season.

I am trying to set it up so that I have reusable decor that I can make look different, but still look great every year, without having to spend more money. Last year I got a really great start with purchasing my neutral Christmas decor…

[Psst! Read more about Why I decided to spend a little more money on my Christmas Decor!]

Free Printable: Christmas Shopping List!

Free Printable: Naughty Or Nice Christmas Shopping List!Are you an amazing Christmas shopper? Are you always finished way ahead of the rest of the pack?! Maybe… Maybe Not?! Honestly, I’m not that great, but I am much, much better than I used to be… And you can be too!

Christmas Home Tour – Part I – The Dining Room

Come on in! Welcome to TheProjectPile.com’s Christmas Home Tour — In fact, welcome to our very first home tour, ever! If you are looking for something extremely extravagant and done up to the “nines”, this may not be for you… Most of the Christmas Decor within our home has either been up-cycled from previous years, found in the backyard (Nature Things — Yah!), or it came from the good ol’Dollar Store! With pops of red here, and a sprig of greenery there — I hope you enjoy!

4This super-cozy, yet simple corner, is my favorite place to sit and read a magazine, or just take some time out of my busy day to relax. Believe it or not, this solid-wood rocking-chair came from a thrift store for 25 dollars, and is totally one of the best 25 dollars that I ever spent! I used a faux fur blanket and a hand-made burlap pillow to make this area soft and comfy!13

To “Christmas-Up” this area, I simply recycled last year’s Christmas Decor by placing the Christmas ornaments into the clear glass holders, that would normally house my regular dining room decor. Such a simple concept, that adds the perfect combination of Christmas and “Sparkle” all in one! 18I purchased one bunch of “Fresh Winter Berries” for 13 dollars, and look at the result! A sprig here and there, totally ties the room together!2I’ve had these little snowman salt and pepper shakers for a coupe of years now, just sitting on the top of my microwave — shoved to the back, where nobody could see them… and I must say, they are my favorite piece of decor this year!
6My lovely nephews gave us this adorable “Joy, Joy, Joy” (one of the songs that they always sang when they were little!), Snowman Plate (sorry, it’s kind of hard to see with the way the light is reflecting!)…. It is the perfect finishing touch to my hutch decor.  

Adding some old red napkins underneath certain pieces in the room was the final detail used to bring everything together! I really hope that you enjoyed Part I of this home tour…. Remember to stop on by TheProjectPile.com to check out more! 🙂27
