DIY Christmas Evergreen Swag

DIY Christmas Evergreen Swag
Every year I start to decorate for Christmas at 12:01 am on November 1st.  
Living in Canada both Thanksgiving and Halloween have passed.
Now some may think that it’s a little early but here’s my reasoning:
it takes me a day or two to take down all of our fall decor
then another day to clean the house in preparation for decorating
and yet another day to rearrange furniture for holiday decor
the next day Christmas bins get hauled out of storage
I spend a few days rummaging through and organizing ornaments
then I spend some time creating new decorations or displays
I haunt the stores looking for that certain something that may be missing from a vignette
I start to set things out and rearrange, rearrange, rearange
if I didn’t start on November 1st at 12:01 am I might not be done until January!

So the boys and I went out and did some creative “pruning” in our yard to create these DIY Christmas Evergreen Swags.  I love that we have a bit of a forest in our yard ~ lots of greenery and twigs for potential projects! hee hee

I tied our evergreen branches together then added bits and bobs from my holiday stash.

The bows were clearance at Superstore one year, the ribbon from Costco and the ornaments from my stash.

Not too shabby for FREE {if I do say so myself}.  
So tell me ~ when do you start decorating?
