DIY Christmas Décor!

Happy Tuesday Everyone!  Hope y’all are having a great week so far…and if any of you are taking exams/finals…I wish you all GOOD LUCK!  My fiancé and both of my roommates are in their 1st semester of law school so it’s been a little crazy and stressful around my house….I tend to stay out of their way and play on Pintrest on my down time.  I am loving all of the Holiday ideas and decoration from that site and just wanted to share some of my favorites that I’ve seen so far this year. 
Write something “Christmas-y” on a chalkboard and put it over the
 mantle…this could last all the way through February too!
