Now that Thanksgiving is behind us it's time to get those Christmas decorations up!  I like to do it the weekend after Thanksgiving; I would actually do it much sooner, but my husband agrees after Thanksgiving. 

I like to change my decor a little bit every year. This year I thought I would make a quick framed home decor piece to sit by my front door. 

I started by gathering my cardstock in red and green. I threw in some glitter cardstock as well; you can never have too much sparkle around Christmas time. 

I started with Classic Crest Solar White cardstock for the base. I lined up my ornament dies towards the top of the paper and held them down with a little piece of low stick tape so they wouldn't move around. 

I die cut each ornament out of a different color of green cardstock from the Gorgeous green cardstock pack. Then, I die cut all three ornaments out of Silver Glitter cardstock.  

I added adhesive to a piece of scrap paper and placed it onto the back of the Classic Crest Solar White cardstock that I die cut the ornaments from. 

I then took the greens and silver pieces I die cut, and paper pieced them into the ornaments.  I then adhered twine to the top of the ornaments, wrapping it around the top to the back side and attached it with some washi tape.

I die cut "Merry Christmas" out of Curious Metallic cardstock in Red Lacquer. I adhered the "Merry Christmas" to the bottom of the white cardstock below the ornaments. 

After everything was secured in place, I hot glued some twine bows above the ornaments and put it in an old frame I had laying around the house. 

When do you start decorating for Christmas? Are you like me sooner the better or like my husband later and as little as possible?
