We are firm believers that one can never have enough or too many candles...especially at Christmas time! They are great for gift giving or just decorating your home and enjoying. The Dollar Store has been a favorite of ours this season to find items to decorate or transform into something more personal. Like these Snowflakes & Sequins Jar Candles.

You know our love for birch bark candles... and since we made so many this Christmas... we found plenty of ways to display and decorate with them.
A White Christmas Candle Arrangement is both pleasing during the day and in the evening when the candles are lit... and the best part...yep...easy to assemble!

Snow covered trees are simple to make and add a nice touch to any White Christmas theme.
We used Dollar Store cones and craft store snow to create our White Christmas Trees for our White Christmas Mantel.
They are as easy to make as they are nice to look at!

We LOVE birch tree candles, however, we can not bring ourselves to put out the amount of money some places are asking for them. Of course we set our minds to making our own birch bark candles and set out to find some paper to use. While on a shopping trip at Target in the Christmas section, we found a birch bark wood grain looking wrapping paper in our White Christmas theme colors!!!!
We were jumping for joy inside and could not wait to get home and get working on our Wood Grain Christmas Candles for our mantel!

Our White Christmas Mantel is finally done! We love a good labor of love decor project. And this just happened to be one of them. To put our mantel together we rummaged through decorations and things around the house we felt fit the theme, not liking some of the way things looked and loving others and even whipped up a couple decorations to make it all the merrier.
The focus of the mantel is on the birth of Jesus. And the all white with some silver, seems to really be appropriate in keeping our focus on Him.

It is kinda hard not to love the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, especially if you have boys in your life. Okay, maybe some of you can't stand them, but in our house we love them! We quickly fell in love with these TMNT handmade ornaments and before we knew it, we had ideas for our own TMNT Tree Ornaments!

We have another White Christmas ornament to share with you today. You can see how we turned Dollar Store coasters into ornaments also. We call this our Dollar Store Xmas Ornament Makeover because we saw a blank canvas just waiting for a little makeover to compliment our white, silver and cold Christmas theme this year.

We decided on a White Christmas theme this year and unfortunately, needed more white decorations to decorate with than we had on hand. Not wanting to spend a lot on new decorations we knew we had to come up with some crafty ideas.
While at the Dollar Store we noticed a new line of white and silver plates, cups and coasters. While standing their looking at the items, mainly the coasters, it finally came to us...
Drink Coaster Ornaments for the Christmas Tree!

We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends and gave many thanks for many blessings! As we enjoyed our Thanksgiving, this weekend, we are beginning to take down the Thanksgiving decorations and beginning to put up our Christmas decor.
This year we are totally changing things up and going for an all white and silver theme. Usually we reserve this for New Years, but we wanted it for Christmas instead.
To give us some inspiration for our theme, we found some really great ideas. Just in case you need a little Christmas decorating inspiration too, we thought we would share our finds with you! Happy decorating weekend!
