And Finally, Christmas
Two things have been occupying my mind the past few weeks as I’ve been getting ready for Christmas:
1| Scouring Instagram, Pinterest, and stores for rustic farmhouse Christmas decorating ideas
(PSA: here are some farmhouse Christmas ideas I’ve put together for the inside of your home – mantels, entry ways, eating areas. Here’s some porch inspiration, too – these farmhouse Christmas porches are the best on Instagram, by the way).
2| How can I incorporate those ideas cheaply
I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how many things you can do inexpensively to get the look in your house you want. I put together a post of ways I’m decorating for Christmas on a frugal budget, and on that list were 2 things I’ve been doing a lot of:
DIY and free printables
DIY Christmas Decor
If you want to do things inexpensively, you can’t get away from DIY. Thankfully, it’s not that hard to get your creative juices going. It really is easier than you think, and I’m going to be spending a lot of December doing those DIY projects. As you start doing DIY, you realize it’s not just others’ tutorials you can create from; after a while, your mind will start coming up with ways to do things, too.
If you need to get going with some DIY inspiration, here is my go-to rustic farmhouse Christmas DIY list. If it’s not one of these projects I’m creating, something on here gets my mind humming
I’ve been loving free printable lately and coming up with my own, too. So much of farmhouse decor is often just a plain sign with text – clean, simple, nothing fancy. And those are SO easy to make yourself. If you use Canva or something else like that, it’s just so, so easy.
However, if you’re a little challenged in that area, or really, you don’t want to bother because you know someone has already come up with it, I hear you, sister! I usually will look around, and if I can’t find what I want, I’ll make my own.
This is one example of a poster printable I made because I wanted the ‘old book’ look in that verse (Romans 8:38-39) and couldn’t find what I was looking for. So I made it myself. Making printables are pretty easy, but I totally get it if you just want to download it! I do that a lot, too!
O Come Let Us Adore Him Free Printable
The rustic bench in my living room that’s in the above picture is an area I decorate seasonally. Above it is the Romans 8:38-39 poster-size print. I was really feeling like I wanted to swap that out with a Christmas sign. And since I wanted to bring out some of the true meaning of Christmas, I decided I wanted to use a line from a Christmas carol or a Bible verse.
I went on Etsy and Instagram to get some ideas as well as strolled through Hobby Lobby. I came across the line ‘O Come Let Us Adore Him’ on a few signs, and I knew that was the one. However, to have a sign that big would probably cost big bucks, which I didn’t want to (and did have) to spend. I had a feeling I was going to need to make my own, which wasn’t a problem since I had tried that out earlier this year.
In the spring, I created the print on Canva to go in it and uploaded it to Vistaprint to have it printed. Less than $20 with shipping and tax. Then I made the scroll frame with a magnetic strip inside, so I could swap out the print. So, my mind started working to design exactly what I wanted to go in this frame.
I came across this on Instagram, and that became my inspiration for my ‘O Come Let Us Adore Him’ print.

And here is my version:
You can download the 8×10 print and use any frame you want – it would look amazing in a white, black, silver, or wooden frame – really any frame! Amazon has some great frames to choose from, and I always love getting frames at TJ Maxx and Marshalls, too! (affiliate links)

I also created a poster size (24 x 36) that I’m going to fill my scroll frame with and I’ll post a picture once it comes in.
The Real Meaning of Christmas
It’s so much fun to get involved in the festivities of Christmas. I mean, I LOVE it. And sometimes, even though we have good intentions, we can lose sight of the REAL meaning of Christmas – the coming of Jesus to the world as an innocent, sweet baby- all part of the master plan to grow up to be a sacrifice to save humanity. I don’t want to lose HIM in all of this. And this sign, to me, is a big reminder that this season is really about Him – Oh Come Let Us Adore Him.
