This year, our holiday decor is pretty minimal. Since we moved into the Country House just about a half of a year ago, our garage has been a disaster of boxes and furniture and trash and recycling. So, most of our holiday decor has stayed in the mess in the garage. We’ve put up our tree (see our Neutral Modern Farmhouse Tree) and a few wreaths outside, but today I wanted to share our holiday entryway decor.
Our entryway is really just the 4th wall of our living room with a small coat closet. (Click here to see the before tour of our Country House.)
You may remember the stocking holder that I made a couple of years ago. Unfortunately, our past couple of homes have not had a fireplace with a mantel. So, we were in need of a place to hang our Christmas stockings. This DIY hanger has been awesome and perfectly holds all of our stockings, even when they are filled with goodies on Christmas morning.
I also add some painted chipboard letters to each stocking so Santa knows where to put his loot. Yes, I know that there are two E’s, but if you look closely, you will be able to see that one of those stockings is a little different from the others. We had actually purchased the 3 matching stockings before our son was born and needed another creamy cable knit one to go with the rest when he joined the fam. I could not find that same pattern, so I settled for similar.
Underneath the stockings is a console table with a couple of storage ottomans below that. The ottomans are great for storing our kid’s shoes and work as extra seating in a pinch.
On top of the console table is a couple of vintage items that each belonged to one of my grandmas. The white, milk glass double bowl with a lid belonged to my paternal grandmother and the old typewriter was my maternal grandmothers. I love having keepsakes like these!
I also added an appropriately typed Christmas poem/story to the typewriter for the season.
This little space is lovely to walk into when we get home. Even though we don’t have a ton of decor up this year, there is just enough to make it feel merry and bright!
