It’s Christmas Time!
Alright, enough time has passed from Thanksgiving that I feel comfortable announcing- IT’S CHRISTMAS TIME! Whether you have been naughty or nice, the holiday season is upon us! Since Christmas decorations started twinkling their way into shopping aisles long before Halloween even began, I have had plenty of time to look at more Christmas items than any one person should. For this reason, I have compiled 10 Christmas décor boards and where to find the items from them.
I figured I would start with this board since as the Grinch said, ” Maybe Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.” Christmas decorations only have to be as costly as you are willing to spend. Some of the most treasured ornaments from my childhood were cut up, glue and glitter spackled toilet paper rolls that my siblings and I had made during my mom’s infamous 24 nights of Christmas crafting events. With this notion in mind, check out some ideas for homemade Christmas decorations. I will include the links to the creators and their tutorials below as well.

A Very Merry Grinchmas
Speaking of the Grinch, as usual he is having his holiday moment at this time of year. He has slink, slank, slunked his way into stores everywhere and is ready to occupy the holiday spotlight in your home. Below you will find a few Grinchy items I adore. I will also link where you can buy them.

A Charlie Brown Christmas
My Mom played A Charlie Brown Christmas on repeat in my childhood home. Understandably, Snoopy, Charlie Brown and their gang of peanuts became a signifier of the Christmas season for me. That’s why I had a blast making this Christmas Décor Board.

Rankin Bass Christmas
I am probably unnecessarily aging myself with my Christmas fandoms of choice. But, here we go with another Christmas Classic favorite, a Rankin Bass Christmas. If you have no idea what I am talking about hopefully this imagery will spark your memory. I used to play these movies so often that my Mom hid the VHS tape from me after a solid year of me playing Christmas movies non-stop.

Nutcracker Ballet Christmas
Fun fact, or at least fun for me. I was once a Snowflake in a production of the Nutcracker Ballet. I have always been enchanted by the way different ballet productions choose to marry their body movements to music. The set production always takes everything up a notch too. For me it’s not Christmas time until I’ve played the Grand pas de deux (Nutcracker) in every rendition I can find. Of course this theme can be approached from many different ways; but I chose to find generalized Nutcracker themed items.

I feel like Gingerbread is having it’s moment this Christmas. Everywhere I look there seems to be some sort of delectable looking decoration baked and frosted gingerbread style. Whether you are a fan of neutrals or color, gingerbread can easily make it’s way into your Christmas display this year. If you can’t find one you like, you can always just purchase a gingerbread kit and do it yourself!

A Touch of Evergreen Christmas
The world seems increasingly to be less colorful these days. Neutral has become the preference. Still, I think there are ways to go a classier route and still have a little pop of color. A neutral trend that I am currently liking for Christmas is neutral tones with a pop of evergreen greenery.

Again, this Christmas décor board will lean into that neutral tone aesthetic I have been seeing all over. The thing that really sets this board apart is the textures of fur, snow, wood, metal and glass. If I didn’t love everything Christmas and if I didn’t have a decade worth of random things I’ve purchased over the years, I would lean into this Christmas style.
