Deer Christmas Decor

Today I'm sharing with you some of my top pics for deer themed christmas decor! I know there are plenty out there, and this little list probably doesn't even scratch the surface, but I wanted to share some of my personal favorites that caught my attention! I know I mentioned in my Christmas Tree post how I'm so not over the deer craze for christmas decor this year and figured I would show you a few more reasons why. And if you aren't either, than this post is for you! I compiled some of my favorites in deer - themed christmas decor, fully linked so you can get yours too, or make your own!

And of course my free Christmas Printable, a deer as well!

Ok, and please oh please tell me I am not the only who hasn't officially started their christmas shopping yet?!! I mean I think I have grabbed 1 or 2 things here or there, but no where near started, almost finished or done! I have big plans to get it done by this weekend, so next week I can just rest, and make christmas cookies with the kids. However I think my major Christmas miracle this year is I actually got our package to my inlaws in the mail EARLY! That totally counts right? Usually I'm headed to the post office the week of christmas, 2 days before christmas, one year I think it even went out after christmas (oops), but thankfully that is one thing I can cross off my list!

And THANK YOU to all who entered the Holiday GIVEAWAY!! I was so thrilled how many people were excited to enter, and I will announce the winner by the end of the week!

Woodland Glam Christmas Tree

I mentioned in my Christmas Home Tour that I would share more details on my tree, and I'm here today to do just that! My tree really helped spur on the rest of my decor, which honestly it pretty much does every year. I get stuck in christmas paralysis where I can't really decorate the rest of the house, until the tree is done. For me, the tree sets the pace, and thankfully I'm not in a Design Star contest with David Bromstad yelling in the background "TIMES UP!!". For me it's a process, just like in decorating anything else. I start thinking, I get a vision, I start collecting, start installing, and BAM vision comes to life. This year I was craving a little extra oomph to my 'Pinecones & Mercury Glass' theme from last year, and I was quite pleased with the outcome.

Of course I wanted to add more deers this year. After seeing my free christmas printable, you had to have guessed I had deers on the brain. So that got the ball rolling in the woodland department. As much as I adore those cute little owl and squirrel twig ornaments I wasn't 100% sold that was the direction I wanted to go. However I did love the idea of incorporating some grapevine to highlight the woodland feel. The only problem is grapevine garland proved hard to find. Then I saw this beauty, and the wheels started turning. Surely I could deconstruct the wreath and wrap it around my tree?! Well the wreath was so pretty when it arrived I contemplated it, for 2 days!!! I finally got up the courage to tackle it, at 5:30 at night, when naturally is the time you feed your kids dinner ( I don't know why my 2nd wind of project mode comes into play then, but I promise you my kids did have something for dinner that night!). I know what you are all thinking, did it just magically unroll? Not quite. There was a lot of cutting involved, a huge mess of debris tangled in my jute rug,
 but there was success. 

I did say my theme was "Woodland Glam", I love mercury glass, and all things shiny. I used sparkley pinecones, and champagne and silver colored ornaments throughout the tree.

I found three little white deer heads at Joanne's, and they even shimmer!
I alternated the grapevine garland with this beautiful ivory and burlap ribbon from Save-On-Crafts. 
I was SO impressed with the quality. I've seen similar ribbon at other store before, but not the nicest made. This ribbon was so soft it almost felt silky, and had just a hint of wiring too it, so it fell naturally, but could hold a bend if I needed it too. Me thinks I must stock up for next year!

Not to mention it ties in perfectly with our Angel! She has a very soft burlap dress that has a silver sparkle over the whole thing. She was a gift from my mom a few years ago. And secretly I kinda love that she has brown hair, because that's my natural hair color too! Odd the things we relate with :) I am in no way an angel. But my kids think I am, so that is super sweet!

I hope you enjoyed taking a closer look at our tree, and don't forget to check out my Holiday GIVEAWAY. I picked all of my favorite go-to decor items and gathered them all in one pretty giveaway for one lucky reader! 

AND if you are just now starting your christmas shopping, which I totally am! Check out Between You & Me Signs for some lovely gift ideas, or perhaps a present for yourself?!?! For a limited time you can use the code: ROOMSFORRENT15 and receive 15% off your purchase. But hurry that offer expires this weekend! To see how I decorated with my Between You & Me sign click here.

I hope you are having a Wonderful holiday season!
