Weekend Ruminations: December 4 – 6, 2015

This weekend really got me in to the holiday mood and I can’t wait for all this month has to offer!  As we get in to the new week, and a crazy week at that, here are a few pictures from our weekend.

Friday night, I went through some of the recent Christmas goodies I have picked up in the past few weeks and started a little DIY for the house-warming/ugly sweater party we attended on Saturday.


Possibly my favorite DIY to date.  Brandon and I went over to his brother and sister-in-law’s new home for a house-warming/ugly sweater party and sported this sweater duo!

When looking for an ugly sweater idea I stumbled upon Jessica’s blog {biscuitsncrazy.com} who had not only amazingly creative talent but an outfit idea my husband was not opposed to wearing!  I grabbed some supplies (these sweaters were made for $18.50 total!) and went to work.  It took a little time on Friday night and a few hours on Saturday, and I was so pleased with how these sweaters turned out.  I hand stitched felt onto the sweater for the reindeer’s body, and hot glued the hooves, antlers and Christmas decorations.  Table scatter from the dollar store was the perfect size for the sweaters and went on easy with a dab of hot glue.

The sweaters were a big party hit and if there had been a contest we would have won, ha!

I am a little behind on dressing up our home for Christmas so Sunday I put away the fall décor, did an all over house clean, then spent the evening with Brandon putting up our tree and getting in the holiday spirit!

How was your weekend?  Have you ever been to a ugly sweater party (this year was our first)?  Do you lean toward store bought our DIY for costumes?
