Cozy RV Christmas Tour

13 December
Winter is here... it's cold, the days are shorter, and it's been snowing here and there.

And while I love snow and I love the Christmas season, I don't like being cold.

And all this means that I can't work on Bertha for a while 😥 and that sucks because there is still so much I'm dying to get done!

I decided though that I can still have fun with her! I decided to decorate Bertha for Christmas! Mind you, there is only one area inside that can be considered "finished" but I still managed to fix up a little area for some cozy Christmas decor 😊

So, today I am sharing Bertha's Christmas tour!

RV Christmas tour

For this Christmas tour, I decided to remove the dinette and create a little lounging area.

Christmas in the RV

I have been working on making new covers for the cushions and found a nice grey denim that I love. I want the cushions to be more neutral so that the pillows and accessories can be the focal points.

I found a little tree that is perfect for Bertha at the thrift store for just $4.99.

I borrowed one of my mom's vintage train cases to act as a base for this cute little tree and added some pretty faux fur inside for a tree skirt.

I added the buffalo check pillows I made, Easy DIY Envelope Pillow Covers, from the flannel sheet that was in the motorhome when we bought it. You'll see a couple other touches that incorporate that sheet too!

Like the wreath hanging in the window! I found it for just .99 cents at the thrift store.

Here is what it looked like when I found it:

That crumpled, dated ribbon had to go. I added a bow made from some of that sheet and some large, vintage jingle bells!

The stocking also has a bit of that sheet as a cuff!

I made the little black pillow out of a thrifted mini skirt! I immediately thought "pillow" when I saw it and at just $3.99 it was perfect! It has a zipper on the side so all I did was stitch the top and bottom closed and voila! Pillow!

I also made the tied fleece blanket with fleece I purchased at JoAnn's during their Black Friday sale!

I borrowed this wolf paint by number painting from my mom too, I thought it was a perfect snowy scene for an RV.

I decorated the little tree with some things I already had, some handmade ornaments, and fairy lights. The little branch deer next to the tree is my mom's.

I made some cute little wood burned ornaments for this month's Thrifty Chicks challenge. They have mountains...

... and little campfires! And more of that buffalo check sheet and some rusty bells. You can see how I made them here: Wood Burned Wood Slice Ornaments.

I added some feather clips I made a few years ago. See the tutorial HERE (it's down toward the bottom of the post). And some large snowflake ornaments I got at Target's after-Christmas sale a couple years ago.

I also made these tiny snow globe ornaments several years ago from baby food jars.

The kitchen got a little Christmas decor too!

The vintage ceramic candle holder is my mom's and I had the trivet. I found the miniature lightbox at JoAnn's!

I was thinking in my head that it would be fun to use the dinette area as regular lounge area when you aren't eating so I was glad to see that it will definitely work! Next spring I'll be creating a little footstool that will sit over the table base that stays on the floor when the table is removed (so you won't trip over it). And I have thought of an adorable way to get a fireplace in here... I can't wait to see that come to fruition!
