Nate’s 12 Days of Holiday DIYs {Day 12 Monica’s Details…}

Happy 12th Day!! Can you believe we made it?  Who would have thought 48 hours could have provided us with over two weeks of projects to post about!?! We’ve really loved sharing everything with you, although if you want us to be completely honest… since we’ve been seeing these rooms since OCTOBER, we’re sort of glad to be done with all of it! Bad bloggers!
To finish off the final day I’m going to be sharing the itty bitty little details that don’t quite deserve a post of their own, but do need a shout out at least!
One of the projects that was so simple it made me laugh, was the bracelet Christmas tree.  Like most of my projects it came about by accident (and hey, so did Penicillin, so don’t knock it!) 
I was moving the bracelets onto my workspace and stacked them… Hmm, looks sorta like a tree.  Could this be the World’s Easiest DIY?  And that’s how it went down.  It’s a bit hard to see in the “After” pics, but in the room, the gold looks nice and shiny and kind of adds a funky element that I love.  
Jess had this metal letter J floating around, but rather than thinking  Jackson I was thinking Joy! I grabbed a black frame, printed out some holiday text and put it all together.  I’m sooo bummed I can’t figure out where I found the holiday text, but I know I googled something like “Holiday words typed” or something really obscure like that… did I mention I was short on time? Here’s the picture I used.  If you know the source let me know and I’ll gladly add it! 
For me, little details like these make such a huge difference.  Even if they’re never even seen on TV, I just couldn’t do a room without them.  
Ok, now for a whirlwind of final details…
This no sew gal was thrilled with how the sweater accent pillow turned out! My Epsom salt faux snow made me feel ready to hit the slopes.  I’m a wrapping addict, so chunky stenciled presents were right up my alley.  Seriously, who can have a horse without an ascot??  That would be just plain wrong! (hehe)  And finally, I was inspired by this blog post to try a lighted felt garland.
Well there you have it! Thanks so much for hanging with us for these 12 days! We’ll be back to our regularly scheduled programming tomorrow! And can I just mention that I’m fairly certain I’m more excited than my kids about Christmas?? 
 Only 5 more days!!!
P.S.  Tonight Jess is hosting a “Favorite Things” party and we’re both pretty excited about it.  I can’t wait to see what our gal pals’ favorite things are! Have you ever been to one before?? We’ll give you all the details later this week!
