Christmas Decorating Ideas

I love the idea of celebrations, of setting aside a time each year to focus on the great things that God has done for us. Traditionally, our family decorates for Christmas the weekend after Thanksgiving and I am already looking forward to the holiday season. We haven’t yet bought or accumulated a proper roundup of Christmas decorations, so I’ve been dreaming of how I’d like to festoon our house this year.  Here are some of my favorite ideas ::

Gorgeous Multi-Colored Felt Ball Garlands from Penny and Tilli

Fantastic tutorial on dying Bottle Brush Trees from the Dear Lizzy blog.

Emmanuel Bunting. (Two years ago I made a pennant that spelled out “Emmanuel”. I loved the reminder of what Jesus had done throughout the Christmas season. I’d like to make or buy something a little more permanent to put up each year.)

And of course, gobs and gobs of fairy lights. (Via Pinterest)

What about you? Do you like decorating for Christmas? Do you think it’s silly? If you do decorate, what do you do? I’d really like to get some more ideas!
