Nicholas, by Clement Clarke Moore is arguably one of the most popular Christmastide themed poems ever written. The poem was originally published anonymously in Sentinel on December 23, and portrayed St. Nicholas, in an air-borne sleigh pulled by eight reindeer visiting houses and distributing toys for children on the Christmas Eve told through the eyes of a father. The poetry is short and simple and is pleasant to read and it follows a metrical form, which is almost similar to a limerick.
You know the classic poem. We have brought it to life in our Vintage Christmas Decorating. Each year when it comes time to decorate our home for Christmas, I try to think of a theme. This year, we decided that we would add a beloved Christmas poem into the decorating.
We will be sharing a full tutorial on how to make the chalkboards for your stair risers soon, but I was so excited, I just had to share our home with you! Well, while we were working on those, we were talking about ideas that we could make the stair decorations a little more permanent. I was recently inspired to try my hand at hand lettering by the very talented, Dawn Nicole.
So I ordered the Complete Book of Chalk Lettering a couple months back and took some time to read it over. There are some amazing ideas in the book, seriously.
This time though, I decided to stay with a little more traditional lettering for a couple reasons — 1 I was short on time and 2 it definitely takes practice to master the art of hand lettering. The addition of my Santa collection adds a special touch and charm to the stairs. The combination of the larger Santas and the smaller ones works well.
At the bottom of the stairs, I added a simple lighted Christmas tree, a vintage sled and some of our vintage toys. This special Santa is the star of the stairs. He is watching over the children and making sure they have been nice.
Each and every one of the Santas brings a special memory to our family. These were given to each of my boys from their grandparents.
And the different textures work well too. We then carried the theme onto the Christmas Mantel. Nick soon would be there.
We used greenery stem to create the garland more on that coming soon added lights, some red berries and a wooden snowflake garland that I found on clearance earlier this year. And the vintage deer — he is extra special too.
Of course, we needed stockings to hang on the chimney for Santa to fill.
I found these vintage looking stockings at Hobby Lobby. And the red lanterns are from the Better Homes and Gardens line at Walmart.
I have used them in a lot of my decorating, I love how they look. Stay tuned for the chalkboard tutorials coming soon.
