Christmas decorating and Sugar Skull ornaments

It might be a little early for some, but not for me, while most people wait until after Thanksgiving to decorate for the holidays, I do it right after Dia de los Muertos. This weekend I have been putting up my Christmas decorations. It makes me happy, puts me in the holiday spirit, and I get to spend more time enjoying them.

This year I am decorating the entire house with red and white decorations. I found these snowflakes for a great deal at Target. Only $1.00 for 4 of them, so I bought quite a few packs to not only put on the tree, but to also hang around the house. I also love to decorate the house with pinecones. These pinecones smell like cinnamon and I put them in my tree. This year I am going to paint some of them white. Stay tuned for some Christmas decor How To posts.

I have also been working on sugar skull ornaments. Below you will find just a few of them, but I have a little troop on the way. You can find them being listed in the shop daily:

Thanks for stopping by!
Stay tuned for photos of more ornaments, other sugar skull and frida inspired holiday decorations coming to my shop, and stay tuned for my next post on painting pinecones.

Love your little calaveras...very cute. Not in the seasonal spirit yet, but I'll get there. At my age, I'm cutting back on decorating...bought a small, lighted tree last year and I love it. Now I can hand down my larger ornaments to my daughter so she can decorate her tree for her big family, four boys and the girl, finally, due in Feb.

Have fun the tree.

Love your sugar skulled tree. Very creative Kim. Hope you are doing good and you sure have been busy. :) That's good though. Take care and have a great Friday.
