Rustic country decor with a touch of sparkle

I was  a busy Christmas elf this past weekend getting my log home into shape for the holidays.  Inside and out it’s ready for the season to begin, minus the fresh tree, of course.

Hope you enjoy!

Cottage Christmas Decor 2012

This is my cottage Christmas decor for 2012.
First off here’s my two Christmas “branches”, in lieu of a real Christmas tree, as we aren’t here for Christmas and I don’t want to risk a fire.

I did this last year as well, but this year I decided to spray paint the branches white and then once they were dry I put a light coat of Mod Podge on them and liberally dosed them with white glitter.  Then I hot glued on these large crystals I picked up at the dollar store in random areas.  I wanted it to look like they were fresh from an ice storm.
My table centrepiece.
Some little vignettes around the cottage.
And all around the fireplace.

 And with that, I will wish you all a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah or what ever holiday you celebrate at this time of year.
And a very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!
See you all in 2013!
