I've also started to get the inside of the house ready for holidays. Even I now it's a bit insane to take out the Christmas tree now, so I took a baby step and started with the mantel first.
AM Dolce Vita's Holiday Mantel 2012: it's a work in progress. I am still adding more ornaments and colors to it.
A more close-up picture.
I was determined to DIY again to avoid getting sparkle dust all over my house.
I used Ikea SMYCKA artificial garland which looks like real fir, Strala snowflake light chain which operates on batteries (perfect for me because I hate seeing wires leading to outlet exposed), JULMYS ornament balls and garland.
Next up would be Christmas tree, coffee table and dining table.
So have you done holiday decor at home so far?
