DIY Christmas Rosettes and Family Movie Night

*This post contains affiliate links* Christmas vacation has officially started!  That means that the kids and I will be baking up a storm and making a lot of handmade gifts over the next few days.  We'll also be doing a lot of snuggling up to watch family Christmas movies.  We decided to start off our fun with some Christmas decorating.
I set up my Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving and decorated my entire dining room to match.
I love it in the dining room, but we spend most of our time in our living room.  I definitely wanted it to be Christmassy in there too, especially since that's where we'll be watching Christmas movies. So I set up another tree with a completely different color scheme.
And I wanted a wreath and garland over the fireplace to match.
I love using my glass jars to display extra ornaments.
So, the first movie up for our Christmas Family Movie night was ELF.  It's my favorite Christmas movie ever!  I love how Buddy is able to decorate for Christmas using just paper.  I wanted to do something similar, so I made a bunch of rosettes in the same colors as the ornaments on my tree.
Rosettes are pretty easy to make anyway, but with my Cricut Explore One™ I can get a little fancy with the edges.
Here's a video tutorial for you on how I made these Christmas rosettes.
Easy peasy, right?
My Christmas rosettes are not quite like all of Buddy's decor, but I love them!  Before we were ready for lots of Christmas family movie nights, we needed some tasty treats.  I really wanted our first movie night to be special, so I' picked out a few goodies from Shari's Berries.  The boys loved the marshmallow pops.
I'm more of a truffles girl.
We had so much fun watching ELF and being in the holiday spirit with all of the decorations.
I also put another "tree" on the wall behind the sofa.
I just love these rosettes though.  I'm going to make some more to go in my entry way.
Well, that's two full rooms decorated for Christmas at our house.  I also have other little touches of Christmas around that house, like bows on our bedroom doors.  I love having all of the colors and the lights up.  Family movie nights have been super enjoyable this year.
What are your family holiday traditions?
